If Cowboys Sign A QB, Matt Flynn Considered The Favorite


Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that if the Cowboys end up signing another quarterback to back up Brandon Weeden, it will likely be former Packers QB Matt Flynn.

  • La Canfora adds that Dallas has yet to make a final determination at this point in time, but Flynn will take a physical for the team.
  • The Cowboys could still wait on signing anyone to their roster, according to La Canfora.

The Cowboys hosted a number of veteran quarterbacks on Tuesday including Christian PonderJosh Johnson and McLeod Bethel-Thompson now that Tony Romo has been placed on injured reserve with the designation to return.

It’s worth mentioning that the Cowboys have Kellen Moore on their practice squad, but it sounds like they would prefer to add a veteran backup behind Weeden.

Flynn, 29, hadn’t found any reported interest on the open market before the Patriots signed him to a one-year deal back in June.

The Patriots were looking to bolster their depth at quarterback following the four-game suspension handed down to Tom Brady. However, he was released just a few months later, and Brady’s suspension was later dropped.

The Jets signed him to a contract shortly after Geno Smith sustained a broken jaw, but he was among their final roster cuts.

In 2014, Flynn appeared in seven games and threw for 66 yards while completing 50 percent of his passes to go along with no touchdowns and an interception in garbage time for the Packers.

We’ll have more regarding the Cowboys signing a quarterback as the news is available.
