The Dallas Cowboys learned the hard way that you can't have decent season unless you have good depth at quarterback.
With starter Tony Romo forced to watch the team from the sidelines due to a twice-broken collarbone, the Cowboys only managed to win one game without their starting quarterback.
Now, the team is reportedly interested in acquiring a recently released veteran quarterback, in hopes of avoiding that same issue.
The Cowboys apparently could have interest in former Houston Texans' signal-caller Brian Hoyer "at the right price," a source told Charean Williams of the Star-Telegram.
The Houston Texans reportedly parted ways with Hoyer on Sunday, immediately making him the most experienced passer available on the open market.
Despite a four-interception performance against the Kansas City Chiefs that sunk the Texans in last season's playoffs, Hoyer's experience and leadership qualities could make him the ideal second-string quarterback in Dallas.
At present, the Cowboys have two inexperienced players in Kellen Moore and Jameill Showers behind Romo on the depth chart, and are unlikely to enter the season without making a move at the position.
However, the Cowboys could face competition for Hoyer's services, with the New York Jetscreportedly already gearing up to host the 30-year-old.
