"When you feel good about your starter and you feel good about your backups, we feel it's better to take a position player, a guy we know can contribute on special teams, instead of trying to develop that guy (quarterback)."
"We feel in signing Brandon Weeden, he can be viewed as that developmental guy," Garrett said. " ... We view him as in that role right now, so we wanted to be selective about anybody else we wanted to bring in here."
Are the Cowboys comfortable being one Romo back spasm away from Weeden taking meaningful snaps? It's not as far-fetched as it might seem.
