Dallas Cowboys rumors have the team looking at quarterback Brandon Weeden. These Dallas Cowboys rumors come from Friday (March 14), with Weeden potentially becoming a good fit as the backup to Tony Romo. According to a report from CBS Sports, the team has already expressed interest to the veteran quarterback and his agent.

The Cleveland Browns selected him in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, but ended up displeased with how he performed over the last two seasons. He was recently released as the franchise looks toward the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft to find a replacement. They have been linked to players like Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater, but could also end up nabbing one of the current free agents as a stop-gap option.

What might make these new Dallas Cowboys rumors particularly interesting to fans of the team is that Kyle Orton is still on the active roster. It's possible that the front office simply wants to carry a third quarterback, but it could also could mean that Orton's time with the team is coming to an end. There has also been a rumor that he was ready to retire from playing football, so that could be why a search for a replacement is ongoing.

It would seem like the end of Brandon Weeden's time as a starting quarterback if he does agree to a new deal with the team, but that may have already been predicted when one of the worst teams in the league released him. For what it's worth, he played in eight games last season, passing for 1,731 yards, nine touchdowns, and nine interceptions.
