QB - NYG
Week 7 Outlook
Cowboys quarterback Clayton Thorson was released on Wednesday, the team announced.
Thorson was a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles, but he didn't make the team out of training camp and spent the year on the Dallas Cowboys practice squad. He could once again be a candidate for the practice squad in Dallas if he doesn't land somewhere else first.
Quarterback Clayton Thorson was cut by the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday but signed with the Dallas Cowboys to be a member of their practice squad on Sunday, according to reports.
There could be some gamesmanship here with the Cowboys looking for intel on the Eagles, but Thorson also has the prototypical size for an NFL quarterback and is an attractive prospect, despite his early struggles in camp with the Eagles.
Eagles rookie quarterback Clayton Thorson struggled in Thursday's preseason loss to the New York Jets, completing 12 of 26 passes for 84 yards and an interception.
Thorson faces an uphill battled to crack the Philadelphia roster, especially in the wake of the Nate Sudfeld injury and subsequent Josh McCown signing. The Eagles are unlikely to place Sudfeld on injured reserve or carry four quarterbacks on their active roster, meaning that Thorson is probably going to be released soon. The team will likely attempt to sign Thorson to the practice squad if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
