IRVING, Texas (AP) Brad Johnson signed a contract tonight with the Dallas Cowboys, who wanted a veteran quarterback to team up with Tony Romo.
Johnson's agent Phil Williams says the quarterback got a three-year contract. Williams wouldn't discuss financial details of the deal.
Cowboys officials didn't immediately respond to messages, and the team had not announced the deal. On their Web site, the Cowboys reported they were close to adding Johnson to the roster.
The 38-year-old Johnson became an unrestricted free agent last week when the Minnesota Vikings released the 15-year veteran. Johnson won a Super Bowl with Tampa Bay after the 2002 season.
Romo replaced Drew Bledsoe as the Cowboys' starter in the seventh game last season and earned a spot on the NFC Pro Bowl team.
