Default Weeden signs with Cowboys

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys have agreed with former Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden on a two-year contract.

More from ESPN.com
The Cowboys only signed Brandon Weeden as a low-cost insurance policy, writes Todd Archer. Story

Weeden's deal is worth $1.23 million over two years and does not include bonus money, according to the source.

Weeden visited with the coaches at Valley Ranch on Monday and will be the third quarterback under contract behind Tony Romo and Kyle Orton.

The Cowboys have not carried a third quarterback on the roster since 2011, when they had Stephen McGee behind Romo and Jon Kitna, but they appear committed that way early in the 2014 offseason.

A first-round pick of the Browns in 2012, Weeden posted a 5-15 record before his release last week. He completed 438 of 784 passes for 5,116 yards with 23 touchdowns and 26 interceptions in two seasons. He nearly beat the Cowboys in 2012, throwing a go-ahead touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter only to see Romo direct a game-tying drive at the end of regulation and the winning drive in overtime.

Brandon Weeden has thrown for 23 touchdowns and 26 interceptions since being taken 22nd overall in the 2012 draft by Cleveland. He is 5-15 as a starter.
Since coach Jason Garrett arrived in 2007, the Cowboys have carried veteran backup quarterbacks in Brad Johnson, Kitna and Orton. Weeden, 30, does not have the same experience, but joining the Cowboys would give him a chance to rebuild a career that took a big hit with the Browns.

Orton is under contract through 2014 as part of a deal he signed in 2012.

The Cowboys believe Orton, 31, will continue to play in part because of a $3.25 million base salary and the fact he would have to repay the team $3 million of a $5 million signing bonus should he decide to retire.

Why doesn't Jerry go play second string to Romo? He's probably younger than Weeden is anyway.

There's not a day that goes by when I don't regret working my ass off to become a pro athlete.

When failed pros like Weeden are still making seven-figures while the hardest working cops/doctors/lawyers/fill in the blanks are earning maybe six it makes me want to hit 'reset' in this game called life.
