McQuaide signed in 2021 with the Cowboys. McQuaide spent 10 years with the Los Angeles Rams before he made this move.
This is a serious blow for Dallas’ special teams. McQuaide is a trusted player on this unit.
John Fassel, special-teams coordinator, will need to find a way for John Overton and Addington to produce decent performances this Sunday.
