During Monday’s edition of ‘First Take’ ESPN’s Stephen A Smith suggested the Cowboys should sign Colin Kaepernick.
Stephen A Smith thinks the Dallas Cowboys should give Colin Kaepernick a call, despite that he hasn’t played in over 5 years.
He says they won’t, though, not because he isn’t good enough but because Texas is too “patriotic.”

Irvin immediately shut down Stephen A’s Kaepernick suggestion.
“Let’s stop with this Colin Kaepernick stuff. Let’s just stop. Colin Kaepernick’s been out of football for what five years now,” Irvin said,. “Come on, man. Let’s stop all of a sudden thinking we can go resurrect Colin Kaepernick and he’s going to come and resurrect a football team. I’ll take my chances with Cooper Rush. I will take my chances with Cooper Rush.
“I saw Cooper Rush win a football game last year. That’s all I’m saying.”
As of now, it appears the Cowboys are going to give Cooeper Rush a shot to hold down the fort until Prescott can return later this season.
