The Dallas Cowboys have added a developmental quarterback to the roster in former USC Trojans and Buffalo Bills quarterback Aaron Corp. The team announced the move on Tuesday.
Corp spent some time with the Bills last season and became a free agent after the team drafted E.J. Manuel in the first-round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
At one time, Corp was at one time the Trojans starting signal-caller, but Matt Barkley eventually got the starting job and Corp transferred to Richmond. Corp was also the back up to Mark Sanchez during their time in Southern California.
In Dallas, Corp will have a shot to make the roster as the team’s third quarterback.
The Cowboys currently have three signal-callers under contract in starter Tony Romo, back up Kyle Orton and longshot Nick Stephens. Corp and Stephens will likely battle it out in camp for the final spot.
Corp is very athletic and he has a fluid release that you look for. He also has the NFL size which makes him stand out. The negatives for Corp are that he forces too many balls and doesn’t have the strongest arm, but he certainly has the the tools you can work with as a developmental quarterback.
If the Cowboys decide to keep three quarterbacks on the final roster, Corp would have to be the favorite to land that spot.
