The Dallas Cowboys appear close to finding their new backup quarterback.

According to ESPN's Ed Werder, there is a mutual interest between the Cowboys and quarterback Josh McCown regarding an arrangement that would see him join the team as a backup to Dak Prescott.

Werder continues by saying that a decision needs to be made on the future of Tony Romo before a deal can be struck. It seems like just a matter of time before Romo is traded or released, so a deal could be in the works if the Cowboys and McCown are on the same page.

The 37-year-old was released earlier this offseason after spending two years in a Browns uniform. Injuries limited his availability over that stretch, but he remained somewhat effective when healthy.

McCown made 11 starts and appeared in a total of 13 games with the Browns, completing 60.4 percent of passes attempts for 3,209 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.
