NFL Rumors: Dallas Cowboys view Brandon Weeden as 'potential future starter'


On Monday, the Dallas Cowboys agreed to a deal with Cleveland Browns’ quarterback Brandon Weeden, signing the former first round pick to a two-year contract.

The moves seems fairly low risk because the Cowboys barely used any cap space to sign the veteran.

Weeden is insurance in case Kyle Orton decides to retire, but according to ESPN’s Ed Werder, the team could have other plans for Weeden.


With all of the controversy that always surrounds current Cowboys’ starter Tony Romo, statements like that will only add fuel to the fire.

Weeden completed 141 of 267 passes for 1,731 yards with nine touchdowns and nine interceptions in eight games in 2013.

    The more I read this stuff the more I’m convinced big Jones has constructed a deviously clever master plan to completely destroy the Dallas Cowboys and any chance the team might have to win more games than they have the past three years.

    Weeden as a starter? Devilishly clever ploy, big Jones!!!!!!!!

    With the fall so far from Americas Team that I grew up with here in Tyler Texas and Central Texas. I find me and my group of friends putting on new Jerseys. After years of dedication to perfection, Mr. Jones has taken all that and moved it from the minds youths growing up now to be better. They wear Jerseys like #3 Russell Wilson. Manning, and defensive players from Seattle Seahawks daily.

    Just as I thought the Cowboys were making some moves they offset it by signing a quarterback whose chances of becoming a legitimate NFL quarterback is about 50 to 1. Then they have the nerve to try and convince fans that Weeden has a legitimate chance to start? They must be smoking funny cigarettes. What a waste of money and resources. I am seriously considering giving up on them.
