The Cowboys can get this failing QB, but may only be interested at a discount price

He's going to have to take a pay cut for this to work for either team

It appears Mark Sanchez is definitely the odd man out in Denver, per's Jane Slater, as the Broncos are shopping him with a specific team in mind: the Dallas Cowboys.

With Tony Romo expected to miss nearly half the season with a broken back, Dallas will certainly be in the market for veteran passers to buffer the transition for preseason star Dak Prescott.

Unfortunately for Denver, the Cowboys aren't interested in Sanchez at his current $4.5 million salary. Unless Dallas really starts to feel the pressure in making a move to acquire him, he'll have to take a pay cut to sweeten the deal in the Cowboys favor.

Sanchez was beaten out of the starting quarterback position in Denver by seventh-round pick Trevor Siemian, making him expendable as Denver grooms rookie Paxton Lynch as backup.

Instead of releasing the 29-year-old veteran, president John Elway would rather get a late-round pick in return.
