Cowboys Add QB Kellen Moore to Practice Squad

The former Boise State star has spent the past three seasons as a backup with the Lions


While the news of the Dallas Cowboys’ acquisition of Christine Michael made something of a splash on Sunday evening, the team made another, quieter move to add some depth at the quarterback position.

The Cowboys added former Boise State star quarterback Kellen Moore to the practice squad, where he’ll join Jameil Showers as a scout quarterback. Dustin Vaughan was let go as part of final cuts.

Moore is considered by many to be the best quarterback in Boise State’s history, and it’s not hard to see why. His record as a starter for the Broncos was 50-3, and he posted 143 touchdowns to just 28 interceptions in his four seasons there. But he went undrafted in 2012, and has spent the past three seasons as a backup with the Lions.

Kellen is just a really good football player and has been, really throughout his whole life,” Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett told the team’s official website. “I think he had 53 starts in college and he won 50 of them--just a very, very productive player. He knows how to win, knows how to play. Obviously, Scott was with him in Detroit and had a great experience there with him--someone he’s been very fond of and we’ve been fond of since he came out of school.”
