Dallas Cowboys sign a backup for QB Dak Prescott

The Dallas Cowboys Monday announced they've re-signed backup quarterback Kellen Moore. In three games, Moore completed 61 of 104 passes for 779 yards, four touchdowns, and six interceptions.

Moore was slated to be Tony Romo's backup previous year but instead spent the season on injured reserve due to a broken leg suffered during the first week of training camp in August, ultimately opening the door for Prescott to take over under center and become a rookie sensation.

Prescott, Moore and Romo are the three quarterbacks on the Cowboys' roster.

Moore signed with the Detroit Lions as an undrafted free agent in 2012 following a record-setting career at Boise State. Moore, the only left-handed quarterback now in the National Football League, went 50-3 as Boise State's starter and spent his first three National Football League seasons (2012-14) with the Detroit Lions.

Moore was on injured reserve all of last season after a broken leg in practice.

Irvin, an NFL Network analyst, also said he believes the Cowboys would have a better chance than the Texans of winning the Super Bowl even if Romo was Houston's starting quarterback. "Kellen is key here", Jones told the Star Telegram earlier this month. "He fits here real well".

Even though Moore is officially back in the fold in Dallas, there is still one huge question at the quarterback position: What will the Cowboys do with Tony Romo? Terms of the deal were not released.
