While the rumor mill in Dallas has been focusing its attention on Johnny Manziel, one former Washington Redskins tight end believes if a Heisman-winning quarterback in dire need of a change of scenery comes to the Cowboys this offseason, it’ll be his former teammate, Robert Griffin III.

Cooley played with Griffin in his rookie season of 2012, when he led Washington to an NFC East title.

"I'll tell you where he's going to go: He's going to go to Dallas,” Cooley told ESPN Radio 980 in Washington DC, via the Dallas Morning News. “He’s going to have a conversation with Jerry Jones in which Jerry Jones is going to say, 'I want you, I believe in you, Tony's not going to make it very much longer, he's probably not going to make it this year, and I believe you can do it.’

"And Jerry will show him more belief than any other owner, and he's going to like that ownership belief, because he's had ownership belief in the past. Not just a GM, not just a coach saying we like you. He's going to like it from the highest level, which is the only place he's going to get it from. The Dallas Cowboys have the only owner that will come and talk to him."
