Former Cleveland Browns quarterback, Brandon Weeden is to meet with the Dallas Cowboys today, according to Ian Rapoport.'s Rapoport tweeted this morning: "Big 2 days at Valley Ranch: Brandon Weeden & Henry Melton visit the #Cowboys today. Jared Allen visits tomorrow."

Weeden became the second quarterback cut by the Browns last week when the franchise also lost veteran Jason Campbell from their roster. Brian Hoyer is now the only quarterback in Cleveland at the moment.

Cowboys fans may be more optimistic about the visits of  Henry Melton and Jared Allen, defensive lineman who could fill a need in Dallas after the departure of DeMarcus Ware.

Weeden was drafted in the first round of the 2012 draft and was the fourth quarterback taken after Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Ryan Tannehill.

However, the former Oklahoma State player did not have success in Cleveland finishing his two-year career there with 23 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.  

Weeden, came into the league as a 28 year-old after a four year professional baseball career in the minor leagues. He eventually quit playing baseball due to injuries and poor performances. He joined Oklahoma State in 2007 and set a number of school records on his way to the NFL.

The Dallas Cowboys already seem pretty set at the quarterback position with Tony Romo as their starter and Kyle Orton as a veteran backup. However the Cowboys could consider Weeden for Orton's position if they like what they see from the former first-round pick.
