IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have added another quarterback with starting experience in Caleb Hanie.
The signing of Hanie on Thursday gives the Cowboys three quarterbacks behind Tony Romo. Kyle Orton was Romo’s backup last year, and Dallas signed Brandon Weeden last month.
Hanie, who didn’t play last year, spent four seasons with Chicago after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2008. He started four games for the Bears, throwing for 679 yards with three touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
The former Dallas-area high school quarterback spent the 2012 season as Denver’s third QB. Baltimore released Hanie at the end of training camp last year. He was on Cleveland’s roster for a week in December.
