Cowboys agree to two-year deal with QB Brandon Weeden
Brandon Weeden wasn't out of work long. The 2012 Browns first-round pick agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Cowboys.
Cleveland released Weeden last week after a forgettable two seasons that included 20 starts, 23 touchdowns, 26 interceptions and one of the saddest tribute videos you'll ever see. Now he joins Tony Romo and Kyle Orton on the Cowboys' roster. Dallas hasn't carried three quarterbacks during the regular season since 2011 when Jon Kitna and Stephen McGee were behind Romo on the depth chart.
As for Weeden, 30, he gets his wish to continue his career for an organization relatively more successful than the Browns. The former Oklahoma State star told the Oklahomanlast month that his tenure in Cleveland was one big "roller coaster," and that the constant turnover in the Browns' organization made for a "tough situation."
"I want to play football," he said at the time. "I don't care. I just want to play football and be at a place where it's enjoyable and we can compete and win games. That's really what it's all about."
Orton, meanwhile, is signed through 2014 as part of a deal he originally signed in 2012.
