Cowboys add Alex Tanney as camp arm

Five days ago, the Cowboys held a three-man Gong Show at quarterback.  On Sunday, the Cowboys declared a winner.

Winning the check for $516.32 was Alex Tanney.  He joins Tony Romo, Kyle Orton, and Nick Stephens on the 90-man roster.

Adding a fourth quarterback became critical for the Cowboys, given that Romo will have his throws limited in training camp following offseason surgery to remove a cyst from his back.

Tanney, who played college football at Division III Monmouth, gained notice after posting a YouTube video of trick shots.  He was signed by the Chiefs last year, but he was placed on injured reserve in late August.
