The Dallas Cowboys are interested in adding a more experienced player to their quarterback room behind Dak Prescott and Kellen Moore, a per a source.

So they worked out former New York Giants backup Ryan Nassib along with three other players Wednesday, including safeties Jeron Johnson and Duke Williams and receiver Lance Lenoir.

The Cowboys have no plans to sign any of the players after the workouts, at least not as of now, per multiple sources.

Cooper Rush and Zac Dysert are quarterbacks on the roster behind Prescott and Moore.

Rush is an undrafted rookie free agent and Dysert was recently claimed off waivers after being cut by the Arizona Cardinals.

The search for another quarterback is not about any unhappiness with Moore, according to a source. He remains the focus as the team's primary backup. They still don't know what they have in Dysert and wanted to take a look at Nassib.

They released undrafted free agent Austin Appleby to make room for Dysert. Having two undrafted rookies in Appleby and Rush appears to be the biggest issue. Neither Dysert nor Nassib have any playing real experience.
