Dalton was released by the Bengals earlier this week. His release comes one week after the Bengals drafted LSU quarterback Joe Burrow.
Dalton had been with the Bengals since they drafted him in 2011. Last year, he threw for nearly 3,500 yards with 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
This signing is a good one for the Cowboys. Dalton led the Bengals to the playoffs five times and is the Bengals’ career leader in touchdown passes. He also gives the Cowboys experienced depth at the quarterback position behind Dak Prescott.
Dalton also has a home in Dallas so he doesn’t even need to move to join his new club.
