Former Browns QB Weeden Signs with Cowboys
(IRVING, Texas) -- The Dallas Cowboys have signed former Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden to a two-year contract.
According to ESPN, the deal is worth $1.23 million over the length of the deal and does not include any bonus money.
As of now, Weeden will be the third quarterback for the Cowboys, who already have starter Tony Romo and backup Kyle Orton under contract. The team hasn't carried a third quarterback on the roster since 2011.
Weeden was drafted by the Browns in the first round of the 2012 draft. He compiled a 5-15 record before being released last week, completing 438 of 784 passes for 5,116 yards with 23 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.
If he performs well, the 30-year-old Weeden will have a chance to redeem his career in Dallas after a difficult stint with the Browns.
