    The Cowboys have signed quarterback Jerrod Johnson ahead of Thursday's preseason finale. Gives the team some QB depth.

    1:25 PM - 1 Sep 2016


    Time is ticking away rapidly if the Dallas Cowboys are looking to add another quarterback before their preseason finale against the Houston Texans.

    It doesn't look like the visit with quarterback Austin Davis went well, as the team has moved their bullseye to another signal caller with the hopes of having him play behind Jameill Showers on Thursday night.

    Cowboys now targeting for Texas A&M quarterback Jerrod Johnson as Jameill Showers backup for tonight's game. Johnson was cut by the Ravens

    12:09 PM - 1 Sep 2016

    The 6-foot-5, 250 pound Johnson is 28-years-old and was signed as an UDFA to the Eagles in 2011.

    Since leaving Texas A&M, he's been on the roster for a total of eight teams between both the UFL and the NFL. His most recent stint came in Baltimore, with the Ravens releasing him.

    It's likely Johnson is simply being picked up for preseason finale depth and not to resolve the answer of veteran QB. He could land on the practice squad in the end, but for now he'll insure rookie Dak Prescott doesn't need to enter the game Thursday night should Showers go down with injury.

    Now Dallas has two former Texas A&M backup quarterbacks.

    There's an Aggie joke in there somewhere.

    I would suspect those QB who are FA like Austin will still be FA after the cut downs.

    No need to bring Romo back at all this season. The QB depth chart is set! What's the cap hit again if Romo retires or is released? (Sarcasm off)

    Welcome to CZ Jerrod Johnson...

    should've signed Davis, Showers will prove tonight he isn't a NFL worthy QB. as for Johnson he is a one game rental.

    I'm sure he came super cheap. Here's to hoping that extra cash in this year's CAP from restructuring Skandick is now being put towards a DE and/or LB!

    6'5" 250 8th team as a QB prospect? Hand him a 80's jersey tell him he's a DE now.
