Bledsoe, who's due a $1 million roster bonus in March and will count $7.5 million against the salary cap in 2007, almost certainly won't be back with the Cowboys, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Quarterback coach Chris Palmer has told Bledsoe that he will be the Cowboys backup QB going forward, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Bledsoe himself called Bill Parcells' decision to bench him at the half of Monday's game "very bad", which isn't going to get him in Parcells' good books. Things could change before next Sunday, but at this point it looks like Tony Romo will be the QB for Dallas going forward.
Bledsoe was benched after the first half of Monday night's game. He completed 7-of-12 passes for 111 yards and one interception. Bledsoe scored a rushing touchdown on a one-yard plunge. In a sideline interview with ESPN, Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones said that Bledsoe's benching does not necessarily mean that he will not start in Week 8.

Tony Romo completed 14-of-25 passes in the second half for 227 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. One of his touchdowns came after the game's outcome was no longer in doubt. It is uncertain who will start under center for Dallas on Sunday against the Panthers.
After a first half that saw Bledsoe sacked four times while also throwing a costly interception, Tony Romo has replaced him at quarterback.

In the wake of Sunday's 38-24 loss at Philadelphia, coach Bill Parcells indicated that a change at QB for the Cowboys is not planned "not right at this moment, no."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

When asked at Monday's press conference if he was considering a QB change Parcells said, "I don't think that's the answer right this minute." The Tuna's wording suggests that a change could come in time, but no such shakeup is imminent. Bledsoe will have a chance to rebound from his seven-sack, three-interception Week 5 when the Cowboys face a Texans squad Sunday that has allowed a league-high 295.2 passing yards per game.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Drew Bledsoe.

2006

Heís this yearís Kerry Collins in that heís getting a premier wide receiver who has a history of turning his QB into a fantasy monster. Donít discount this just because things didnít work out for Collins at the end of last year (mostly because Randy Moss was severely limited by injury). Throwing out last year because of the time he missed with the suspension, Owensí teams have averaged sixth place in TD passes since 2000. And his teams are always at or near the top of the league in YPA. Remember, the Cowboys are adding Owens to one of the leagueís top receiving tight ends in Jason Witten and explosive flanker Terry Glenn. Assuming his receivers stay healthy, Bledsoe is a solid bet to finish with 4,000 passing yards and 25-to-30 TD passes. But the downside here is that heís not very good in a vacuum. We know heís immobile, but his accuracy is below average (15.8 percent poor throws). He averaged only 6.97 yards on first down attempts, giving Bill Parcells little reason to up his pass percentage on these downs (21st overall). And his inability to respond to pressure (just a 67.9 rating on a whopping 112 late/close attempts) caused conservatism in the red zone, too. Last year, the Cowboys were 27th in red-zone pass percentage. But Bledsoe was seventh in converting these chances. Heíll have more opportunities and better odds of success with the gameís premier red-zone weapon lining up next to him in í06. Bledsoe is very durable. And the arm strength is still there, as evidenced by his 95 QB rating on 102 11-to-20 yard attempts.

2005

If Bill Parcells could squeeze 3,532 yards out of the 41-year-old Vinny Testaverde last year, he should be able to put a declining Bledsoe in a position to be productive as well. The key for Bledsoe is to have time to step into his throws in the pocket and not be asked to move too much or make quick decisions. To that end, the Cowboys likely will rely heavily on the running game and when they do have to throw will make sure enough bodies are on the line and in the backfield to keep Bledsoe from getting pressured. If they do that, Bledsoe should be able to use his strong arm to make downfield plays and avoid some of the fumbles and poor throws that have hurt him the last couple seasons.

2004

The team brass had plenty of discussion regarding Bledsoe before committing to him as their clear-cut guy for 2004, feeling the veteran is still a far better player than the numbers showed last year. Bledsoe, in turn, is excited about coach Mike Mularkey's offense, as the head coach and his creative new quarterbacks coach, Sam Wyche, believe Bledsoe will rebound if they devise ways for him to get the ball out of his hand quicker. A big running game and better line play are all part of it, but Bledsoe's got to do things to help himself and he knows it. Bledsoe should improve enough to be a reliable No. 2 for you, say 17-20 touchdowns and 3,200 yards. He'll be in more of a ball control offense aimed at moving the chains, so donít expect anything close to his 2002 season (4,359 yards and 24 touchdowns). Think nice, safe, No. 2 fantasy QB if things get back to normal.
