Cowboys Sign QB Brock Berlin

Todd Archer reports that the Cowboys have signed quarterback Brock Berlin.

Berlin worked out for the team last month and is a favorite of new offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, who worked with Berlin for two years in Miami. Berlin was cut twice by the Dolphins in training camp.

Berlin, 6-0, 213 pounds, was once the No. 1 player coming out of high school before signing with the University of Florida in 2000. He later transferred to Miami where he was a two-year starter, throwing for 5,099 yards with 34 touchdowns and 23 interceptions. He played last spring for Hamburg in NFL Europe with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions.

This addition should not affect the team’s draft plans.

No kidding. Still, it can’t hurt to have some competition for the 3rd quarterback spot. Presumably, Wilson is a one-year stopgap as backup. If Berlin can mature into a reliable #2, he’d be a great acquisition.
