Johnson would be a solid pickup for the team.

I'm not onboard with the possibility of signing Johnson. We just released an old QB who is a sitting duck in the pocket.

If we want that, then just wait Bledsoe out & resign him.

JJT of the Morning News said the Cowboys wanted a younger experienced backup who would push Romo. He brought up the names of Patrick Ramsey & Joey Harrington.

But our O-line will be much improved, so a sitting duck QB won't be as bad as last year.

We hope the protection is better.

Just my opinion. I would rather have a younger exp. QB like a Ramsey or Harrington backing up Romo.

I just don't like having Johnson as the backup. Testaverde, Bledsoe, been their, done that. Time to try something different.

We don't need a tutor for Romo. The Cowboys already have Garrett & Wilson for that.

Let's face it, if Romo goes down, we are screwed. So I say roll the dice with a player with some upside.

Granted, I didn't see Johnson play much last year, but I sort of like the idea of a wiley vet like Johnson being another pair of eyes on the sideline--someone who can talk to Romo about what he's seeing. I read somewhere that Troy Aikman said that having another QB like that who he could talk to was a huge help to him.

However, I must admit that someone like Ramsay is a much more interesting pickup.

Why, he is not that old, has experience, and when in a good situation he could win some games. Not even peyton manning can win in oakland.

I think Brooks is terrible. I like Johnson as the backup. I like Ramsey and Harrington as backups too. I prefer Ramsey to them all.

At least Johnson has proven he can win in this league. Ramsey (whom I like) or Harrington have not. I don't think either of those guys would push Romo. IF those two can push Romo, then he's not the QB we all think he is.

Man it sucks for Ramsey, I think he needs another STARTING opportunity. He was 1st round pick.

Hey, don;t disrespect him like that. He had the talent to be a pro-bowler, just messed his life up. Did anyone catch Outside the Lines the other day? He was on it and I just feel bad for him, he was almost in tears because he knows he could be getting paid like a Michael Vick or Donovan McNabb right now. I know he broughbt it upon himself, but I just feel bad for the guy.

Anyone other than Brooks is fine with me. You have to wonder if Harrington would be a lead candidate considering that he worked with Jason Garrett last year and that seemed to be a bounce back year for Harrington. Also, Kerry Collins could be a candidate because Garrett was a teammate of his in NY and was a good friend to him during those tumultous times for Kerry.

You guys are getting this 3.5M in the first year confused with base salary, he most likely signed for 3 year/6M or so, which is decent salary for a veteran backup, who can manage the team for a couple of games if Romo goes down.

God, Brad Johnson is terrible. He was absolutely awful his last two years in Tampa, and even worse this past season in Minnesota. You guys better hope Romo doesn't get hurt, because Johnson is toast.

I can't believe he got $3.5 million salary year one.....

I seem to recall Johnson doing a good job managing the Vikings right after Culpepper went down in '05. And let's not forget that there was probably be a third stringer on the roster if necessary.

There are very few teams who can do well if their starting QB get hurt... Put Tom Brady out of New England, Peyton Manning out of Indianapolis etc...

Weak part of the schedule. And it was the defense and special teams winning games, not Johnson.

When the Vikes played legitimate competition, Johnson was terrible....i.e. at home against Pittsburgh, I believe he had 3 turnovers including 2 in the red zone.

We all know Brad will be here a year maybe 2 tops, he is here incase of an injury or a Romo breakdown. Don't get to wrapped up on length.
