The Dallas Cowboys signed veteran signal-caller Mark Sanchez, shortly after Sanchez was released by the Denver Broncos.
Sanchez will likely assume the role of backup quarterback behind rookie Dak Prescott, who impressed during three preseason showings.
The Cowboys began a search for quarterback help after starter Tony Romo fractured a bone in his back, sidelining him for at least six weeks. Prescott and Jameill Showers, who underwhelmed in the team’s final preseason game Thursday, were the only quarterbacks on the roster in the wake of the Romo injury.
Denver released Sanchez Saturday after naming Trevor Siemian the starting quarterback earlier in the week.
Sanchez has a pedestrian 74.3 career passer rating with 86 touchdowns and 84 interceptions over six seasons with the New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles.
