Report: Cowboys Release WVU Product QB Will Grier



Former West Virginia quarterback Will Grier may need to find yet another franchise to continue his NFL career. Grier was released by the Cowboys, according to a report by ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

This news comes at somewhat of a surprise since Grier had a solid preseason and many believed he would even win the backup job in Dallas. A nagging groin issue is believed to have played a role in the decision. The Cowboys may place Grier on the practice squad if he is not claimed.

Grier was actually claimed by the Cowboys following his release from Carolina, the team that drafted him.

Before being drafted by the Carolina Panthers with the 100th pick (3rd round) of the 2019 NFL Draft, Grier spent two seasons as WVU’s starting quarterback in 2017 and 2018 after transferring from Florida.

Grier threw for a total of 7,354 yards and 71 touchdowns in his two seasons in Morgantown.
