Former Browns QB Brandon Weeden Signs Two-Year Contract With Cowboys
Former Cleveland Browns quarterback and 2012 first round draft pick Brandon Weeden has a new team and it’s the Dallas Cowboys as the Oklahoma State product signed a two-year contract with them on Monday.
During his first two seasons in the league, Weeden, who is already 30-years-old, was a dismal 438 of 784 passing for 5,116 yards with 23 touchdowns and 26 interceptions. He will now attempt to battle Kyle Orton for the right to back up Tony Romo in Dallas. It should be noted, however, that the Cowboys generally only like to carry two quarterbacks on their 53 man roster.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, there might have been a chance that Weeden stayed in the AFC North as he reports the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals as two other teams the quarterback had talks with.
