A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...
DALLAS WEAKER WITH WEEDEN
NORTH CAROLINA-(BASN)-Here we go again….
The Dallas Cowboys continue to make moves that really don’t make them any better, especially with the signing of QB Brandon Weeden, who in 20 games with the Cleveland Browns only managed to win five games in two seasons, to a two-year deal worth $1.23 million.
In other words, placing a star on the side of Weeden’s helmet probably won’t put a smile on wide receiver Dez Bryant’s face, who was team mates with him at Oklahoma State or the Cowboys fans, especially when you look at Weeden’s numbers at Cleveland, where he had 23 touchdowns and 26 INTs and a horrible 55.9% completion rate.
Nevertheless, with Tony Romo coming off of back surgery and Kyle Orton pondering retirement, Weeden seems to be the only option for the Cowboys and owner Jerry Jones at this moment in time, which probably means another bad season for America’s team.
Weeden, who lost his starting job to Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell last year, will receive a base salary for the Cowboys, which includes $570,000 this year and $660,000 in 2015, with no guaranteed money.
