Brandon Weeden, recently cut from the Cleveland Browns will visit with the Dallas Cowboys today. Cowboys fans are filled with negative opinions, all pointing to why I don’t think the Cowboys shouldn’t sign Weeden..
Reason 1 Age:
This is classic and comes from @EyeoftheGator. Yes, Jerry Jones is probably thinking like this. Tony Romo is 34, Kyle Orton is 32. Weeden is 30, so why not consider a younger quarterback in upcoming draft?
The #Cowboys may sign Brandon Weeden b/c Jerry Jones is under the misapprehension that "employing the elderly" tax credits come off the cap.

Reason 2 Three’s a Crowd:
Do we really need another backup to Tony Romo? Weeden wouldn’t see much opportunity and would just get more stale sitting on that bench.
I see no reason to have both Orton and Weeden ..

Reason 3 Team Spirit Would Suffer:
Even non-Dallas fans are pulling out a tissue and shedding a tear over this one. Cowboys fans should be happy, not crying.
Cowboys looking at Weeden?? Tony Romo and Brandon Weeden… My heart goes out to you Dallas fans

Reason 4 Major Distraction:
Via @majorpayne44 Weeden joining the Cowboys could have the fans laughing so hysterically, that all the booming laughter would cause Romo to choke more than ever.
“@TheNFLCentral: Brandon Weeden to meet with Cowboys.” > LMFAO!!!

Is signing Weeden a good or bad move?
