Former Boise State QB Kellen Moore re-signs with Dallas Cowboys

That's not surprising, as the growing assumption is that the Cowboys will eventually release Romo, making him much more affordable as a free agent.

Moore appeared in three games (two starts) in 2015 for an injured Tony Romo and completed 61 of 104 passed for 779 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.

Moore is now penciled-in as the No. 1 backup - the same spot he held at the start of training camp in 2016 until he fractured his fibula.

Rookie Dak Prescott, who opened the year as the No. 3 quarterback, instead took over with both Romo and Moore out and ended up winning the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award and was named to the Pro Bowl.

The Dallas Cowboys have announced they will resign former Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore.

By re-signing Kellen Moore to another contract and expressing interest in signing Josh McCown as the main backup to starting quarterback Dak Prescott, it is very clear that the front office in Dallas is ready to move to a new chapter.

The #Cowboys re-signed QB Kellen Moore, adding depth to their QB room. "Kellen would satisfy that itch. He fits here real well".

With a dearth of available marquee players in their primes, this might have been the least sexy and impactful first wave of free agency in years, with nearly all of the big deals completed within hours of opening last week.

Moore went on to complete 15-of-25 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown, but also threw three interceptions in his National Football League debut against the Jets.
