Jeff Driskel won't sign contract after 'great visit' with Cowboys

Free-agent quarterback Jeff Driskel reportedly had a positive visit with the Dallas Cowboys, but may not end up signing with the organization, according to Mike Chiari of Bleacherreport.

Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reported Driskel had a "great visit" Thursday, and there is a "strong chance" he will sign with the Cowboys and become the instant favorite to serve as starting quarterback Dak Prescott's primary backup.

Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram followed up that report with a report of his own that the Cowboys will not be signing Driskel "at this time," however.

The 28-year-old Driskel, who is set to enter his sixth NFL season, was released by the Denver Broncos this week.

The former University of Florida and Louisiana Tech signal-caller was a sixth-round draft pick by the San Francisco 49ers in 2016. He was released by the Niners prior to the 2016 season and ended up signing with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Driskel remained with the Bengals from 2016-19, spent part of 2019 with the Detroit Lions and spent all of 2020 with the Broncos.

During his NFL career, the 6'4", 235-pound Florida native has appeared in 15 regular-season games and made nine starts. His record is just 1-8, and he has completed 58.6 percent of his passes for 2,120 yards, 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions while also rushing for 309 yards and three scores.
