Biography

The Dallas Cowboys signed quarterback Kellen Moore as a developmental quarterback who has experience in Offensive Coordinator Scott Linehan’s system after spending the first two years of his career (2012-13) under Linehan in Detroit. Moore, a five-year veteran, was a collegiate standout for Boise State, setting multiple NCAA records for the Broncos in his four-year college career. He signed as an undrafted free agent with the Detroit Lions after the 2012 NFL Draft, spent all three years with the Lions as their third-string quarterback and was inactive  for every game he was with the team. With the early season injury to Tony Romo in 2015, Moore was brought in to learn the offense and eventually got an opportunity to play, starting two games and seeing action in a third. He missed the 2016 season with an ankle injury suffered in training camp, but he returns in 2017 looking to retake his role as the club’s backup quarterback.
