The Texans have claimed Brandon Weeden off waivers from the Cowboys, a source tells Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). Weeden was waived by Dallas on Tuesday.
Weeden, 32, entered the season as Tony Romo’s backup, and looked good in relief of the injured starter in Week 2, completing all seven of his passes for 73 yards and a touchdown, as Dallas secured a 20-10 win over the Eagles. However, Weeden was up and down in his next three starts, throwing just one touchdown in those games, as the Cowboys lost all three. Eventually, Weeden lost the temporary starting gig to veteran Matt Cassel.
