Tony Romo Received $64.11 Bonus for Playing 1 Drive in 2016

Cooper Rush 2017 NFL Draft

Moore was slated to be Tony Romo's backup past 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.

But now Moore should slide in as Prescott's backup whenever there's a resolution on Romo's next step.

Dallas re-signed quarterback Kellen Moore to serve as a backup and provide depth for quarterback Dak Prescott.

The Cowboys brought in veteran Josh McCown for a visit, but opted to retain Moore, though McCown could still be in the mix.

Moore played in three games in 2015 when Romo was injured. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said earlier this month that there is no need to add another veteran quarterback if Moore is in the fold.

Moore agreed to a one-year, $775,000 minimum-benefit deal, according to a source.

One of the main reasons that the Dallas Cowboys trade rumors haven't evolved into something is that Tony Romo's contract is a bad one for any team. When this occurs, Cowboys fans are expected to temporarily cheer for Romo and his new team.

Moore signed with the Detroit Lions as an undrafted free agent in 2012 following a record-setting career at Boise State.

After being shut down for Las Vegas in 2015 and a cancellation in Pasadena due to National Football League interference in 2016, they believe this is the year the convention will be a go.
