Andy Dalton can save Cowboys’ season and reboot his career after missing out on starting jobs last offseason

  Andy Dalton can save Cowboys’ season and reboot his career after missing out on starting jobs last offseason Seven months ago, Andy Dalton was the perennial bridesmaid. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had interest, but only if their Tom Brady pitch fell through. The Indianapolis Colts called, but a deal was back-burnered in favor of Philip Rivers. This is how Dalton became a Dallas Cowboy. He was a near-miss starting option for a handful of other teams, then got released and was left to choose between backup options that included Dallas, the New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars.Now a horrible turn of fate has granted him a chance to reclaim a reputation as a starter, while rebooting a career that has never gotten the respect it probably deserves.

Andy Dalton was knocked out of Sunday’s game and potentially beyond after Washington linebacker Jon Bostic delivered a vicious hit to the quarterback’s head. Bostic will likely face disciplinary action from the NFL, but it may not be severe.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Bostic is not expected to be suspended by the NFL for his hit on Dalton. Bostic was flagged for unnecessary roughness and ejected for the play, so he will likely be fined.

  Transcript: Raphael Bostic on The following is a transcript of an interview with Atlanta Fed's Raphael Bostic that aired Sunday, October 11, 2020, on "Face the Nation."MARGARET BRENNAN: We turn to the President of the Atlanta Reserve system. That's Raphael Bostic. He joins us from Atlanta this morning. Good morning to you.

Dalton had gone into a slide when Bostic launched himself at the Dallas Cowboys quarterback’s head. Dalton laid on the ground motionless for a few seconds before being helped off the field. You can watch the play here.

The hit from Bostic was such a dirty play that Washington coach Ron Rivera apologized to Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy over it. If Bostic isn’t suspended, many people will feel he got off easy.

McCarthy already has some concerns over the way Cowboys players reacted to the hit on Dalton. The coach may also be bothered by Bostic not facing harsher discipline.
