Apparently the Dallas Cowboys were not too concerned with distraught fans, begging them via Twitter not to sign Brandon Weeden. Unfortunately, Weeden became a Dallas Cowboy today, so fans can officially begin their mourning period. The Cowboys got off cheap though, as Weeden is signed for just.. two years at $1.23 million.

Mixed opinions from NFC East Players:

Dallas Cowboys ignored these compelling tweets not to sign Weeden and inked the deed today:

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?


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.


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.


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.

Sorry, fans. It looks like a done deal.
