Cowboys agree to terms with veteran QB Luke McCown ahead of HOF game – Dallas Cowboys News


Dak Prescott
is the unquestioned starter in Dallas, and his metoeric rise to the top of the depth chart had almost everything to do with
Tony Romo
‘s serious back injury last season, which lead to his eventual retirement. Injuries are as much apart of football as the forward pass, and as the
Dallas Cowboys
learned in 2015, the year before Prescott arrived, there needs to be a backup plan in place should the starter go down.

Romo played just four games that season, and the options behind him —
Brandon Weeden
,
Matt Cassel
and
Kellen Moore
— weren’t even replacement-level fill-ins. When it was over, the Cowboys were 4-12, with Romo managing three of those wins.

With training camp underway ahead of the 2017 season, Moore remains on the roster, along with undrafted rookie free agent
Cooper Rush
and
Zac Dysert
, a 2013 seventh-round pick of the
Denver Broncos
. But Dysert is out with a herniated disc in his back, and with the Cowboys’ first preseason game less than a week away, the team agreed to terms with 36-year-old
Luke McCown
.

The Cowboys will be McCown’s sixth NFL team — he has also played for the
Cleveland Browns
,
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
,
Jacksonville Jaguars
,
Atlanta Falcons
and most recently, the
New Orleans Saints
