Andy Dalton essentially says a season of backing up Dak Prescott with the Dallas Cowboys is halftime of his career.

The 32-year-old former Cincinnati starter doesn’t expect to play as the insurance policy for a two-time Pro Bowler who hasn’t missed a game in his first four seasons.

Dalton also doesn’t think his days as a No. 1 quarterback in the NFL are over.

The Bengals released him to clear the way for No. 1 overall draft pick Joe Burrow to lead the franchise.

Dalton believes a better market for quarterbacks will help him next offseason.
