DMN: Dallas Cowboys in preliminary talks with Kyle Boller

New, comments

From Calvin Watkins:

The Cowboys have talked with the agent of free agent quarterback Kyle Boller.

Jerry Jones is interested in a veteran as a backup and Boller appears to be a good fit. However, Boller didn't play last season because of a rotator cuff injury. But his agent, Justin Schulman, said Boller is healthy.

When Brad Johnson was cut yesterday it opened up debate over who would be a good fit behind Tony Romo. Of the available free agents, Boller may be the best of the bunch. If the Cowboys don't sign a veteran backup then we're looking at a rookie and Brooks Bolliinger fighting for a spot behind Romo. Let's hope the Cowboys make a decent offer.

Kyle Boller is a six year veteran out of the University of California. His best season came in 2004 with the Ravens when he started all 16 games and threw for 2,559 yards, 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions for a QB rating of 70.9
