The Dallas Cowboys have re-signed backup quarterback Cooper Rush to a two-year, $6 million deal, which includes a $1.25 million signing bonus.
According to the team website, it is the most money the Cowboys have spent on a backup quarterback since Dak Prescott became the starter.
Rush signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan in 2017 and has spent the majority of his NFL career in Dallas.
He was briefly cut at the beginning of Mike McCarthy’s tenure and spent one year with the New York Giants before returning to the Cowboys.
Last season, Rush was forced into action after Prescott suffered a broken thumb in the season-opener against Tampa Bay and went 4-1 as a starter while appearing in nine total games as the Cowboys made the playoffs.
Rush has played in 19 games with six starts in his career with a 5-1 record. He threw for a career-high 1,051 yards and five touchdowns last season.
