Brandon Weeden moves up to No. 2
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With the Cowboys' release of Kyle Orton, Brandon Weeden will enter the season as the backup quarterback behind Tony Romo. Weeden went 0-5 as a starter last year with the Browns, throwing nine touchdowns and nine interceptions.

But Dallas coaches have been impressed with Weeden, who took all the first-team reps during OTAs and minicamp while Romo recovered from back surgery.

Brandon Weeden not worried about Kyle Orton's decision
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Cowboys still don't know whether backup quarterback Kyle Orton will play this season. But Brandon Weeden said the uncertainty is not affecting his preparation.

"I’m going to go about my business the same way regardless. I haven’t met Kyle, so I can’t really speak on it, but whatever he decides to do – it’s kind of out of my control," Weeden told the team's website. "So what I’m worried about is, if I’m running with the twos out there, do my job to make the twos better. I want to make the team better any way I can, so it doesn’t change my mindset or the way I feel about it."

Weeden said his goal is to earn the backup job, regardless of whether Orton shows up.

Brandon Weeden provides insurance for Kyle Orton
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Cowboys anticipate quarterback Kyle Orton participating in the mandatory June minicamp, but if he retires they'll move forward with Brandon Weeden as Tony Romo's backup, reports the Dallas Morning News.

"Well, that's the plan," quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said. "That's one of the reasons we signed [Weeden]. We're still hopeful that Kyle will be here, but if he doesn't, we feel really good about Brandon, especially since he's going through our offseason program."

Brandon Weeden: 'Tried to do too much'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden looked back on his time with the Browns with some regret.

"It wasn't an ideal situation," Weeden told SiriusXM NFL Radio. "The regime that drafted me was out a year after I got there. You never know the plans the group coming in has and I think, as a player, as much as you try not to do too much, try not to put too much pressure on yourself to perform and show you can be the guy for the long haul, sometimes you get caught up in it.

"You try to do too much as a player and that's one thing if I could change about myself, I wouldn't try to do too much every Sunday. I think, just let the game kind of come to you and be more patient."

Weeden is excited to be in Dallas, where's he's the third QB behind Tony Romo and Kyle Orton. "I was ready for kind of a clean slate and a fresh start," he said.
