NFL free agency: Cowboys re-sign QB Kellen Moore to 1-year deal

The backup quarterback recorded 779 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions in 2015 while filling in for an injured Tony Romo.

The Cowboys have secured at least one backup for quarterback Dak Prescott by re-signingKellen Moore to a one-year contract, the team announcedMonday.

While terms of the deal were not disclosed, CBS Sports reports Moore will earn $775,000 in base salary and bonuses and count $615,000 against the team's salary cap.

Moore was slated to be Tony Romo's backup last year but instead spent the season on injured reserve due to a broken leg suffered during the first week of training camp in August, ultimately openingthe door for Prescott to take over under center and become a rookie sensation. Moore had previously played three games in 2015 after Romo was injured,completing61 of 104 passes for 779 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.

Poised to be Dallas' No. 3 signal caller this season, Moore could end up competing for the No. 2 spot at camp this summer if the team eventually decides to releaseRomo.

Moore, 27, went undrafted in the 2012 but was later picked up by the Lions. He spent his first three seasons playing under Cowboys coordinator Scott Linehan in Detroit before signing withDallas in September 2015.
