Report: QB Caleb Hanie signs one-year deal with Cowboys
Caleb Hanie has yet another job. This time, the quarterback reportedly will join the Cowboys.
Ever since quarterback Caleb Hanie took over for the injured Jay Cutler in the middle of the 2011 Bears season and essentially helped destroy Chicago's playoff chances, Hanie has suited up for the Broncos (2012) and the Browns (2013). He didn't throw a pass for either squad.
Now, Hanie will be on his third team in three years, as ESPN Chicago reports that Hanie has signed a one-year deal with the Cowboys.
One possible reason for this signing is that Dallas still doesn't know if last year's backup, Kyle Orton, will return to the team or instead will retire.
If Orton doesn't return, Hanie could battle for the No. 2 spot with the newly-signed Brandon Weeden for the right to back up Tony Romo. Or, if Orton does play, Hanie might have to compete with Weeden for a spot on the roster.
And all of this doesn't take into the account the theory that Dallas could draft a quarterback next month.
Either way, Hanie has a job for now, but it doesn't look likely that he'll break his two-plus year drought of not throwing a pass in a regular season NFL game.
