Jason Garrett takes snaps at QB at Cowboys camp

In their desperate search to find a veteran backup quarterback to Tony Romo, the Cowboys are looking within their own coaching ranks.

No, the year isn't 1999. That is indeed Cowboys coach -- and former quarterback -- Jason Garrett taking legitimate snaps under center at a Dallas training camp session in the year 2016. Garrett, a 50-year-old human being, isn't gunning for a quarterback coup of his own team by any stretch. Rather, he's just filling in for a night.

With Kellen Moore out for the foreseeable future with a broken ankle and Tony Romo taking a veteran's night off, Garrett has taken up the mantle of "veteran quarterback showing the young guys how it's done" for at least one evening in Oxnard.

Dak Prescott and Jameill Showers shouldn't be looking over their shoulders any time soon, but if the quarterback position grows any thinner in Big D, who knows what Jerry Jones might do? After all, Garrett knows the system better than anyone on the roster.
