The Dallas Cowboys are looking for a veteran quarterback. Not one to replace starter, Tony Romo, but one to back him up. According to the Dallas Morning News, the franchise will not be drafting a new signal caller in next month’s draft, but rather, they will pursue acquiring a veteran in order to back up Tony Romo.
The Cowboys currently have Stephen McGee on their roster backing up Romo. The Texas A&M signal caller is entering the final year of his rookie contract. Veteran QB Jon Kitna had been Romo’s backup for the past two seasons, but the 15-year veteran announced his retirement this offseason due to a back injury and is now teaching high school algebra.
The free agent crop of quarterbacks this season is not exceptionally deep, however there are a few seasoned veterans the Cowboys could look towards. Jason Campbell will be a free agent this season. The Miami Dolphins will allow Chad Henne to hit the open market. Donovan McNabb is currently unemployed as well.
