Andy Dalton makes clear he wants to start again in NFL
If it wasn’t already obvious, Andy Dalton’s stop in Dallas looks set to be a one year stint.
Dalton spoke to the Dallas media on Wednesday and made clear that he still views himself as an NFL starter, and hopes that backing up Dak Prescott with the Cowboys sets him up for a better situation when he returns to free agency next year.
New Cowboys backup QB Andy Dalton said he wants to "help Dak as much as I can. Obviously, I bring a lot of experience. … Hopefully, this sets me up for the future." He is scheduled to re-enter free agency in 2021. "I believe I'm a starter in this league."

There were a lot of circumstances working against Dalton. He was released late, after most teams had already filled whatever holes they had at quarterback. The coronavirus pandemic also prevented him from traveling to meet with any teams.
It’s pretty clear that the Cowboys have no plans to start Dalton unless something happens to Dak Prescott. He’ll try to help however he can in Dallas and then move on in search of a starting job once more.
