ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) — The Dallas Cowboys have signed ex-Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden to what sources say is a two-year contract.
Weeden, 30, started 8 games in 2013, completing 52.3 percent of his passes for 1,731 yards, 9 touchdowns and 9 interceptions.
In his rookie campaign of 2012, Weeden appeared in 15 games, throwing for 3,385 yards, 14 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions.
The Cleveland Browns drafted Weeden out of Oklahoma State, where he was a teammate of Dez Bryant, with the 22nd overall pick in the 2012 draft.
Weeden holds a number of school records, including the record for passing yards in a season (4,727). He was named the 2010 All-Big 12 Quarterback and a 2010 Manning Award Finalist.
With Tony Romo already backed up by Kyle Orton, the Cowboys might carry three QBs on the roster — something they have not done of late. Orton, however, has also been considering retirement.
Dallas is also hosting defensive linemen Henry Melton (today) and Jared Allen (Tuesday).
