Cowboys lock down QB Kellen Moore

Prescott, Moore, and Romo are the three quarterbacks who are under contract for next season, at least right now. Moore, the only left-handed quarterback now in the National Football League, went 50-3 as Boise State's starter and spent his first three National Football League seasons (2012-14) with the Detroit Lions.

The Cowboys have also investigated other quarterbacks, including Josh McCown. This has made moving him a very hard prospect. Per Spotrac, he was responsible for a $20.835 million cap hit when factoring in signing, option and restructuring bonuses to his $8.5 million base salary. There were scenarios provided, showing why Romo's potential addition to the Texans is a bad business move for the Cowboys and Jones. That would be a tough pill for any owner to swallow, let alone someone as enigmatic as Jerry Jones. The Texans traded quarterback Brock Osweiler to the Cleveland Browns, clearing out a lot of space to either sign or acquire another QB.

Approximately two weeks into the NFL's free-agency period, Moore agreed to return to the Cowboys for a third season, the organization announced on Monday. That could create a bidding war of sorts, as several of those franchises, including the Houston Texans, would certainly want to sign him.

"There is a reason not bring in a veteran quarterback because you got Kellen". So far Dallas has not dealt with aging star quarterback Tony Romo.
