Cowboys sign Brandon Weeden

Detroit Lions v Cleveland Browns Getty Images

After a miserable two seasons in Cleveland, Brandon Weeden will try to revive his career as a backup in Dallas.

The Cowboys have signed Weeden to a two-year contract, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.

The Browns chose Weeden in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft and handed the starting job to him, but he did not deliver: As a rookie he passed for 14 touchdowns and 17 interceptions and had a passer rating of just 72.6. In 2013, Weeden was in some respects even worse: His passer rating declined slightly, to 70.3, and the Browns’ offense was more effective with both Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell running it than with Weeden at the helm.

In Dallas, Weeden will get some time to learn the pro game without the pressure to start. As of now, Weeden is third on the depth chart behind both Tony Romo and Kyle Orton.

The Cowboys may think Weeden has what it takes to develop into a starter eventually, but at age 30, Weeden doesn’t have a lot of time to get better. Weeden played five years of minor league baseball before playing college football, so he’s much older than most second-year quarterbacks. The Cowboys may see some promise in Weeden, but he’s a long shot to ever be an NFL starter again.

    There are veteran Madden players that could be a better GM than jerry Jones.

    Rumor has it that Titus Young is in route to Dallas

  8. markdamack says: Mar 17, 2014 4:02 PM

    Here we go again. Weeden isn’t here to be Romos replacement. Just like Mincey isn’t here to be Ware’s replacement. No one knows if Orton is sticking around or not, we need a back up. Bingo.

    Weeden is better than RGMe

  11. pftoracle says: Mar 17, 2014 4:02 PM

    Just what the Cowboys needed, another QB who throws to the opposing team.

    Maybe he’ll be the Benjamin Button of QBs

  13. Steeley McBeam says: Mar 17, 2014 4:02 PM

    He’s certainly no better than Orton and I question whether hes even any younger.

    I bet cowboys fans (which I am) hate the cowboys more than anyone else, this is freaking ridiculous…

  21. irongershwin says: Mar 17, 2014 4:04 PM

    Sign Weeden instead of resigning Ware. Makes perfect sense.

  22. cowboysspurs88 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:04 PM

    I can’t wait to see the comments bashing the Cowboys for picking up what will end up being a 3rd string QB. Cowboy haters are so melodramatic.

  26. romo2witten says: Mar 17, 2014 4:05 PM

    Why is it funny to sign a former first rounder to be a backup? I don’t think anyone thinks he is a long term starter in the league.

  27. nflinsider711 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:06 PM

    Good Move Weeden!!! Cowboys start 0-6, Weeden=new starter.

  32. dirtydrynn27 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:07 PM

    Really. Don’t ever call RGIII a bust as long as you have this bum

  33. jvw1982 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:07 PM

    Everyone that was on your D line that was worth anything is gone and you sign a guy who will be backing up the back up QB smh

  34. phillyrick22 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:07 PM

    this signing just put the cowpokes over the top! the sky is the limit! bawahahahahahahahhahHahAaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. doctorrustbelt says: Mar 17, 2014 4:08 PM

    I’m sure Brandon Weeden will miss the immense receiving talents of Davone Bess, Greg Little, and Fozzy Whittaker.

  36. brownsalwaysrebuilding says: Mar 17, 2014 4:08 PM

    He had a couple bad years but he seems like a good guy and I hope he does well.

    Bernie Kosar went from the Browns to the Cowboys and then got a Super Bowl Ring…

  37. thepftprodigy says: Mar 17, 2014 4:08 PM

    This guy will never see play time when we have a guy like Tony Romo leading this storied franchise!!

  38. charman11 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:08 PM

    wow as a Browns fan all I can say is, you gotta be kiddin me, then lol. I mean Why? The guy is terrible well with us he was anyway, who knows maybe in a different situation he might be better but I sure wouldn’t bet on it. Good luck with him and see ya weeden. I’m just glad that he will never qb for us again.

  39. nflsecurity862 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:09 PM

    They had to replace Ware somehow.

    SuperBowl!!!

    They would have been better off trading for Christian Ponder.

  46. dumbpollack says: Mar 17, 2014 4:11 PM

    Get Danny White or Roger Staubach while you’re at it. Weeden is the worst QB I have EVER seen. As a Browns fan in soooo happy not to have watch him anymore.

  47. drs76109 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:11 PM

    I wonder if Mike Holmgren is still talking to JZerry Jones…

  48. rcgolf12 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:12 PM

    This is the dynamite move Jaren Allen was waiting for before signing with Dallas lol. Or it could be an indication Romo is still hurt.

    A great day for skins fans everywhere.

    Super Bowl here we come! 😒

  51. DrSteveBrule says: Mar 17, 2014 4:12 PM

    I guess he’s a better QB than Gabbert. Not by much.

  52. seaeagle707 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:13 PM

    I would have bet real money that no NFL team would’ve signed Weeden. Arena maybe, but not the bigs. Guess its true what my friends in Arlington say, you can never underestimate the insights of Jerry Jones. He sees the unseeable.

  53. ochospantalones says: Mar 17, 2014 4:13 PM

    Sure they can’t afford to retain their starting defensive line, but at least they have two veteran backup QBs in their 30’s and a kicker signed through 2020! Classic Jerry!

  54. RavenzGunnerz says: Mar 17, 2014 4:14 PM

    hey guys, relax… it’s a back up QB. Niners signed Blaine Gabbert…

  55. rickrock6661982 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:14 PM

    That should put a stop to those pesky “Bench or Trade Romo” chants.

    Good move, Jerrah

  56. zack2482 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:14 PM

    Well he’s thrown less Interceptions than Eli Manning. Thank god he’s the back up.

  57. DaveKShape says: Mar 17, 2014 4:16 PM

    Weeden is less than a year younger than Orton. That shows you how old this dude was coming into the league.

  58. kwjsb says: Mar 17, 2014 4:16 PM

    As many comparisons to Al Davis Jerry Jones has received this fits the mold.

    The 1971 over all #1 pick, a strong armed QB, had become a bust with a team that had no supporting cast.

    Al took a flyer on the guy, and Jim Plunkett took the Raiders to the Super Bowl.

    Could it happen twice?

  59. FlashPatterson says: Mar 17, 2014 4:16 PM

    Too bad Weeden wasted 5 years failing at baseball.

    What, Ryan Leaf wasn’t available for a second tour of duty?

    Sorry Dallas. You’re a great city, your fanbase is among the world’s best but as long as you have a delusional know-it-all as an owner/GM, the closest you’ll get to getting a taste of a Super Bowl is if it’s held at the JerryDome.

  63. doctorrustbelt says: Mar 17, 2014 4:17 PM

    Remember when Cleveland fans were in love with brady quinn?!?

    They would defend, defend, defend Akili Quinn against any criticism.

    During Weeden’s time in Cleveland… Cleveland fans hated Weeden… but… gave Bess, Little, and other bad to mediocre receivers every excuse.

  68. seanleemvp says: Mar 17, 2014 4:24 PM

    I shouldn’t be surprised by all the cowboys bashing but it never fails to amaze me. Why isn’t anyone laughing at Cleveland for drafting what was a 28 year old one year wonder with a first round pick?

    Dallas is taking a flier on a guy with talent, not putting the franchise back another 3-5 years with a wasted first round pick like Cleveland.

  69. seabrawk12 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:25 PM

    Everyone usually points to the Jets, Browns, Jags, or Raiders as the laughing stock of the league. All of those team’s fanbase’s can now rest assured that the biggest joke of a franchise in the NFL lies in Dallas.

  70. bullcharger says: Mar 17, 2014 4:25 PM

    Not a bad pick up for a back up QB. He’s started games in the league and he has a chance to win a game if he needs to play. He’ll never be a starter.

  71. artworkworld says: Mar 17, 2014 4:25 PM

    Having a guy who has recently started some games as your third string quarterback isn’t a bad idea. It’s a terrible idea if he ends up as the 2nd string QB.

  72. deflateddome says: Mar 17, 2014 4:26 PM

    So he signs Weeden, wants Jared Alan and has hosted Melton to sign…Only 8 million left including signing draft picks?

    Wow..Just Wow…

  73. ccjcsr says: Mar 17, 2014 4:30 PM

    He won’t even make it through camp, it’s merely like somebody else stated a backup at best. Orton comes back and Weeden is out the door

  74. emmac13 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:31 PM

    Weeden should have been the 3rd stringer in Cleveland too. That is why Chud and Norv Turner got canned. They pushed him as the #1 QB. For 30 years old Weeden has a lot of football maturing to do. You never flip the ball 15 yards.

  75. wwrgesusd says: Mar 17, 2014 4:32 PM

    Keep doing what you do, Jerra!

  76. brownsclown says: Mar 17, 2014 4:38 PM

    Wow! They should provide Romo with Titanium pads because if he gets hurt and WE DONE plays Dallas is S C R E W E D!

  77. alshonbrandontandem says: Mar 17, 2014 4:39 PM

    Is their anyone on the place of this planet that respects Jerry Jones? I don’t think so. This guy is a buffoon.

    #CowboysAreTheButtsOfJokes

  78. jgedgar70 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:40 PM

    It seems innocent enough, but if Romo is unable to go at the start of the season, Weeden is one hit on Orton from being in the game. And considering that Orton has pigeon droppings on his shoulders because he’s already a statue, that would be more likely to happen than not. So you should be praying intensely that Romo is ready.

    If Weeden ever does get in the game, I want to see what kind of meltdown Dez Bryant has after the first 3 Weeden throws in his direction are intercepted.

  79. tindeaux says: Mar 17, 2014 4:40 PM

    hahaha. Antonio, Orton, and now Weeden? America’s team is down for another while for sure.

  80. ubepunkedagain says: Mar 17, 2014 4:42 PM

    Here is what is going to happen..You will hear all of these great stories about him in training camp and how dazzling his arm can be and some will even be suckered into this thinking. If Weeden ever starts for you, he better have 1:36 seconds to throw the ball and even then he will struggle hitting the guy. He will throw lasers at guys 5 feet away, slide at the 25 to end the half, throw into the stands on 4th down with the game on the line, or flip the ball from 35 yards away. Expect batted down passes by the boatloads, not be able to hit a screen, have touch or be able to put any air under the ball. He will have a deflating and depressing presence when he enters the field so make sure your teammates are jacked up on PEDs. Other than that he will do good for you guys. Keep him away from flags!

  81. mncowboysfan says: Mar 17, 2014 4:43 PM

    This much reaction to a player who at best will be a 3rd string QB (unless Orton retires) and received basically the league minimum (2 years/$1.2 M) with no bonus (read no guarantees).

    Dang it’s good to be Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys. Just remember there is no such thing as “bad press”. If they’re talking about you, you matter!

    Love it!!!

  82. bigpoppa5501 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:45 PM

    Probably not real high on the needs checklist for the boys! Front office better get busy or 8-8 will be hard to achieve.

  83. ytownie says: Mar 17, 2014 4:46 PM

    I’m amazed that players like Weeden collect millions of dollars for being terrible and guys like you and me who do our jobs well will never see anything close to a million.

  84. finsphan says: Mar 17, 2014 4:48 PM

    Can someone please explain something to me, weeden throws for 14-17 td-int and a 72% qb rating, geno smith goes 12-21 td-int and a 64% qb rating yet wedden is a “bust” and smith is “promising”.

  85. marylandcowboy says: Mar 17, 2014 4:49 PM

    People crack me up on here already bashing Jerry and company. This is a third string QB in Dallas that they got dirt cheap in case Orton decides not to come back. Not to mention they are not planning on grooming this guy to be Romos replacement just back up. Lets see how Jerry does with either Henry Melton or Jared Allen. Our D line is a much more important concern than a back up quarterback right now. Besides that can any of you cowboy bashers name a really good quarterback out of cleveland in the last 25 years. Quarterbacks go to Cleveland to die or just fade away and this poor guy had the really bad luck of being drafted and then forced to start for this team.

  86. russrpm says: Mar 17, 2014 4:49 PM

    Wow, 75+ comments about a team signing a 3rd string QB. Amazing how many people are obsessed and jealous of a team that has been so mediocre for several years.

  87. rickrock6661982 says: Mar 17, 2014 4:52 PM

    Just because LeBron left the state of sadness to become a winner doesn’t mean it will happen for you too, Brandon.

    Is he 40 yet?

  91. lowesislander says: Mar 17, 2014 5:00 PM

    The Cowboys are planning on converting Weeden to defensive tackle or outside linebacker. A project, of course.

  92. yb1956 says: Mar 17, 2014 5:01 PM

    GIants, Redskins, and Eagles fans should take a moment of silence and be thankful for the Cowboys GM. That team will still get lots of prime time games though.

  93. leevi98 says: Mar 17, 2014 5:03 PM

    Perfect way to replace Hatcher and Ware..way to go Jerry lol

  94. clesportsfan says: Mar 17, 2014 5:04 PM

    Dude had a deer-in-headlights look on this face all the time in Cleveland – but at least he’s a true American going to America’s team…que the 4th of July pic of him dressed up

  95. steelerdeathstar says: Mar 17, 2014 5:05 PM

    Well, as a #3 QB with some experience, that didn’t cost much, how can you really knock it? He’s likely one of the best #3 QB’s in the NFL now. Simply an insurance policy for a worst case scenario for Dallas…no more, no less.
    As for the writer that questioned why with similar stats Weeden is called a ‘bust’, while Geno Smith is labeled ‘promising’…it might have something to do with the fact that Smith is probably 7-8 yrs younger than Weeden.

  96. 4thputt says: Mar 17, 2014 5:06 PM

    From strictly a financial perspective, Dallas will pay veteran minimum to Weeden ($570K in 2014 and $660K in 2015) while Cleveland pays him $2.1 million . . . pretty cheap for a potential back-up QB (if Orton retires).

  97. tformation says: Mar 17, 2014 5:07 PM

    Look on the bright side, Cowboy fans. It could have been Tebow. That “Flail Mary” can’t be any worse than 80% of Tebow’s tosses.

    And besides! Third stringer! Hang on to Orton. He did pretty well in that last game.

    Developmental project. Weeden might even get cut in camp.

  98. fearthehoody says: Mar 17, 2014 5:07 PM

    that fixes everything

  99. mrnasty1984 says: Mar 17, 2014 5:20 PM

    YES! Now if only he plays better at DE than he did as a QB. I see what you’re doing Jerry… CONVERT THEM ALL!

  100. dws123 says: Mar 17, 2014 5:38 PM

    I mean, I get that the FA QB’s available right now are pretty bottom-of-the-barrel. But Weeden is the dirt underneath said barrel.

  101. itsnotforme says: Mar 17, 2014 5:40 PM

    REACH!

  102. keithdylan says: Mar 17, 2014 5:45 PM

    He might be as old as Orton, but he doesn’t have the same skill set when it comes to subbing for Romo.

  103. imnotsorryisaidthat says: Mar 17, 2014 5:46 PM

    As a member of Chip Kellys Bleeding Green Nation even I have to say..Why all the hate on the signing of a 3rd string option behind Romo and Orton?..Ware was a over-paid,oft injured,wrong side of 30 player who refused a pay cut,who just got over-paid by a concussed John Elway

  104. dekoda14 says: Mar 17, 2014 5:47 PM

    he counts $75,000 against the cap.. better then paying millions to a guy who sits on the bench, I think it’s a good move..

  105. willjasper says: Mar 17, 2014 5:54 PM

    I’ll never understand why Jones won’t get the hell out of the driver’s seat? He’s spent twenty years mired in mediocrity trying to prove it wasn’t Jimmy Johnson who built the Super Bowl winners of the 90’s.

  106. upperdecker19 says: Mar 17, 2014 6:02 PM

    Gary Hogeboom, Steve Pelluer and Quincy Carter are flabbergasted!

  107. seahawkhuskyfan says: Mar 17, 2014 6:02 PM

    Let him start. He almost has as many playoff wins as Romo

  108. oldcracker says: Mar 17, 2014 6:15 PM

    What, Jerry passed on Colt McCoy?

    What does this say about J. Campbell, M. Vick, B. Quinn, V. Young, T. Tebow, J. Freeman, Patrick?

    Titus Young or Devon Bess next?

    Maybe Jerruh is sharing medication with Jimmy Irsay?

  109. 10kmp says: Mar 17, 2014 6:15 PM

    Arrogance has brought down men far greater than Jerry Jones… and eventually, arrogance will bring Jones down too. He won’t EVER allow himself to be forced out of the GM position. The harder people push, criticize and call for him to step down the harder Jones will push back. He is too arrogant and self important to do anything else. There is one thing, and only one thing, that will convince Jones that he’s the problem; empty seats in his palace of a stadium. Until then, well, we can forget about a real football GM making the once mighty Dallas Cowboys a contender again…

  110. geefan1 says: Mar 17, 2014 6:27 PM

    Shrewd move on Jerry’s part. Hrs guaranteed not to have a QB controversy in 2014.

  111. texansfalcons says: Mar 17, 2014 6:30 PM

  113. jeffesky says: Mar 17, 2014 6:55 PM

    Weeden was picked ahead of Russell Wilson. Browns n Cowboys are going no place soon. Jerry Jones? Brandon Weeden is Rick Mier reborn.

  114. BigAlHeBDMan says: Mar 17, 2014 7:08 PM

    Don’t worry Brandon. You’re not the first QB to fail in Cleveland. They haven’t had a winning QB since uhhhhh, Can you pass me some of what Irsay is taking. It may help my memory.

  115. EJ says: Mar 17, 2014 7:30 PM

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with signing Weeden. Though his time on the field hasn’t gone exactly as planned, Weeden has definitely shown that with the right time in the pocket, he can get the job done. In Cleveland the Offensive line was anything but solid, so Weeden could never get comfortable. Give him a chance Dallas.

    Well according to Pro Football Focus the Browns have had the 5th ranked offensive line in both of Weeden’s seasons. This year he had two top 5 players catching passes at their positions in Gordon and Cameron so how much more help does he need?

    Perfect place for him. Washed up player on an equally washed up team.

    I’m NOT a Cowboys fan (or a Browns fan either).

    But Weeden is a back up and that is what they signed him to be.

    Romo is their starter.

    Having a backup who is 30 yrs old (meaning more mature than a 22 yr old kid) who has started 20 games in the NFL is better than say what the Broncos have in Brock Osweiler.

    Brock, in 2 yrs in the NFL has made a TOTAL of 20 pass attempt and zero starts…

    So, do you want Brock as a backup or a 30 yr old who has started 20 games as your backup?

    I didn’t say as your teams starter. I don’t want him as my starter either but as a backup, a team could do worse…

    Hell, Ryan Mallet of the Pats (who I thought had a chance to be a good QB) has been in the league for THREE seasons and he’s ONLY attempted a total of 4 passes, all in 2012.

    He did not attempt even ONE pass last season.

    Again, give me Weeden as a backup over these types any day… as at least Weeden has seen live bullets, planned, practiced and prepared to be the starter…

    Weeden has attempted 784 passes to these guys 20 and 4 career pass attempts…

    Tom Landry, and Gill Brant must be turning over in thier graves. Jimmy Johnson as to be laughing is a$$ off. I’m a football fan and each of us are or we wouldn’t be fooling around on this site. So, in all seriousness I really feel sorry for Cowboy fans. The deserve so much more than this stupidity

    SMH on this one. Weeden does come cheap but they still have Orton on the roster and have only been keeping two QBs on the 53 man roster. Does it mean Orton is gone and Weeden becomes a less expensive backup?

    Talk of Weeden eventually starting is silly.

    I don’t believe this to be a bad move. I think more teams should think like the Packers have in the past. A starting QB, a veteran backup and
    a young guy with a big arm. The young QB can learn slowly and work on his weakness. Jeff Hostetler when asked why he a mid- round draft pick was successful when a top five pick Todd Blackledge ( who beat
    Hostetler out of a staring job at Penn State) replied that he was afforded a 4 to 5 year apprenticeship. Blackledge was thrown into
    a staring job on a bad team.

    This guy ruined two football seasons for me.

    Hahahaha ! Jerry Jones really knows his stuff! The next Troy Aikman in the making! Cowboy fans ought to be so proud. LOLOLOL

    It’s not like the Cowboys signed him to be a starter. Chill out a little bit. Jerry Jones could sign a top quarterback (Rodgers, Brees, Brady etc.) in their prime and people would still be like “See?? I told you!! Jerry doesn’t know what he’s doing. That was a terrible signing!!! Those guys aren’t THAT good!” He seriously can’t win with non-Cowboys fans and a growing number of Cowboys fans. Downplaying anything and everything Jerry Jones does.

    Why. For the love of god, why….

  127. fosnomore says: Mar 18, 2014 10:20 PM

    Dude has all the physical tools in the world and that’s why he was signed… The problem is between his ears… He can’t process plays fast enough and is continuously making the wrong call at the last moment. Can’t teach IQ.

    Jerry misses his old pal Al, so he’s invited his shade to spend the next several years “helping out” in the Cowboys F/O. What a pal! Be proud, Dallas, be proud. (*giggle*)
