DALLAS (TICKER) -- The Dallas Cowboys have apparently found a veteran backup for their young starting quarterback.
According to a report by the Dallas Morning News on Monday, the Cowboys signed Brad Johnson to serve as the backup to Tony Romo.
Johnson, who turns 39 in September, signed a three-year contract worth $7.5 million according to the report.




The Cowboys needed to find a backup quarterback after cutting Drew Bledsoe last week and decided on Johnson, who spent last season with the Minnesota Vikings. Johnson started 14 games for the Vikings and threw for nine touchdowns and 15 interceptions before being replaced by rookie Tarvaris Jackson for the final two games of the season. A ninth-round draft pick in 1992 out of Florida State, Johnson has completed 2,620 of 4,237 career passes (61.8 percent) for 28,548 yards with 164 touchdowns and 117 interceptions. He won a Super Bowl with Tampa Bay after the 2002 season.

Eh. He was cheap and he doesn't horribly suck. I'd sign him if I were the Cowboys.

That's true, he isn't the best, but he is decent for a QB.
