Unless you’ve been living under a rock, it should be pretty evident that the Dallas Cowboys are rebuilding.

Yes, I know that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said that the team isn’t rebuilding, but the proof is in the pudding.

For starters, the Cowboys dumped former All-Pro defensive end DeMarcus Ware this offseason. They also decided against re-signing standout defensive tackle Jason Hatcher, choosing to go with a much younger player in Henry Melton. Then they designated wide receiver Miles Austin as a post-June 1 cut before parting ways with him.

Those were three seasoned veterans that are no longer here; you see where I’m going with this? I do think, however, that for there to be absolutely no question as to whether the Cowboys are rebuilding, one last chip has to fall; the quarterback.

As many of you know from our conversations on Twitter, I am a firm believer that head coach Jason Garrett and starting quarterback Tony Romo’s destinies should go hand-in-hand; meaning that if one goes, so should the other.

Heading into the 2014 NFL Draft, I truly think that the Cowboys will have a chance to land one of the top quarterbacks in the Draft at No.16, if that happens, I am almost sure that the writing will be on the wall, for not only Romo, but Garrett as well.

I say that because it’s been rumored that there is a divide between the organization and head coach on whether to draft a quarterback. The Cowboys are thinking long-term and the head coach is thinking immediate success.

So, if the Cowboys were to draft Johnny Manziel at No.16, per se, I think that the message should be pretty clear; they no longer believe in the Garrett’s process and will go forth in a different direction.
