The Cowboys have not only brought a quarterback in front of Stephen McGee to be the primary backup to Tony Romo in the form of Kyle Orton but they have now added a quarterback who could potentially push McGee off the roster.
The Cowboys re-acquired Rudy Carpenter off waivers from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday.
Carpenter signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2009. He was released after training camp as the Cowboys kept McGee, a 2009 fourth-round pick, on the roster. Carpenter was signed to the practice squad and stayed their until Nov. 23 when he signed by the Buccaneers.
He has spent the past two seasons floating between the Tampa Bay practice squad and active roster.
