Dallas Cowboys sign QB Andy Dalton, says report
- According to a report, the Dallas Cowboys signed Andy Dalton to a one-year deal.
The Dallas Cowboys have reportedly signed former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, NFL franchise the Cowboys signed Dalton to a one-year deal after his Cincinnati exit.
The deal is reportedly worth a guaranteed $3million and could be worth up to $7m.
Dalton spent nine seasons with the Bengals and helped lead them to the playoffs five times before he was released on Thursday after Cincinnati drafted quarterback Joe Burrow with the top overall pick in last month's draft.
Dalton posted a 70-61-2 regular-season record as Cincinnati's starting QB, but the Bengals have not won a playoff game since 1990.
In Dallas, Dalton will serve as backup to Dak Prescott – who was given the franchise tag by the Cowboys earlier this offseason.
Dallas are still trying to come to a long-term contract agreement with Prescott.
Dalton – the Bengals' career leader in touchdown passes and a three-time Pro Bowler – already has a home in Dallas and played in college at nearby TCU.
