The Cowboys added a quarterback to the roster, signing Brandon Weeden on a two-year contract, multiple sources confirmed.
Weeden, who also talked with Baltimore and Cincinnati last week, will make $570,000 in 2014 and $660,000 in 2015. Cleveland, the team that released him earlier this month, still owes Weeden $2.1 million in guaranteed money.
Weeden, who will turn 31 in October, spent just two seasons with the Browns after they drafted him out of Oklahoma State with the 22nd overall pick in the 2012 draft. A former starter, he will join a roster that includes only two other quarterbacks — Tony Romo and Kyle Orton.
Romo, who will turn 34 next month, is recovering from the second of two back surgeries he underwent in a span of eight months. Orton, meanwhile, has indicated to the Cowboys he isn’t sure he wants to play out the final year of his contract with the Cowboys.
