2014 NFL Free Agency: Brandon Weeden signs 2-year deal with Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys have some competition to be the top backup to Tony Romo at quarterback after agreeing to a two-year deal with former Cleveland Browns first round pick Brandon Weeden, according to Todd Archer.

Weeden was taken in the first round out of Oklahoma State just two years ago and the Cowboys had interest in him at that time, but certainly not in the first round, and will compete with Kyle Orton to be the first option behind Romo.

Things obviously did not work out for Weeden in Cleveland, but then again how many quarterbacks in the last 20 years have had things work out well for them in Cleveland?

Weeden gets a fresh start in Dallas where he is a low-risk signing and if he has a strong preseason could put Orton on the trading block for a team looking for insurance at the game’s most important position.
