The team has released Brandon Weeden because they’re refusing to carry three quarterbacks. Weeden entered the season as Romo’s back-up.
When Romo got hurt in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles in Philadelphia, Weeden stepped in. He looked good in that relief appearance.
The 32-year-old completed all seven of his passes for 73 yards and a touchdown, as the Cowboys won 20-10 to start the season 2-0.
However, things would begin to fall apart in the games before the teams bye week. After the bye week, the team started Matt Cassel, who was acquired in a trade with the Buffalo Bills for a draft pick.
They lost three games with Weeden as the starter. And they’ve lost an additional four games under Cassel including a 10-6 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for their seventh straight loss.
Cassel will remain on the roster as Romo’s new back-up. Weeden; however, will go through waivers and will become a free agent.
He’ll be a viable veteran option should a quarterback go down in the next few weeks. But a team may look at other options before settling on him.
He is 5-19 in 24 starts and appeared in 32 games. He is 533-of-923 for 6,158 with 28 touchdowns.
He also has 30 interceptions and a 74.6 QB Rating.
