Former Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore has signed with the Dallas Cowboys, he said Sunday.
No details on Moore's exact roster status were available.
DallasCowboys.com hinted Monday that Moore would join the practice squad but that hasn't been announced.
The Cowboys’ other quarterbacks are Tony Romo and Brandon Weeden. The offensive coordinator is Scott Linehan, who was Moore’s original coordinator with the Detroit Lions.

The Cowboys cut last year's third-string quarterback, Dustin Vaughan.
“Kellen is just a really good football player and has been, really throughout his whole life,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Monday, according to the team website. “I think he had 53 starts in college and he won 50 of them – just a very, very productive player. He knows how to win, knows how to play. Obviously, Scott was with him in Detroit and had a great experience there with him – someone he’s been very fond of and we’ve been fond of since he came out of school.”
The Lions cut Moore on Saturday after he spent three years as their No. 3 quarterback. They could have kept him for their practice squad, but Moore had an opportunity to sign with any other NFL team first.
Moore will join some familiar faces in Dallas. The Cowboys have three other former Boise State players: cornerback Orlando Scandrick and defensive linemen Tyrone Crawford and DeMarcus Lawrence.
Thank you to @Lions for an awesome few years! Will miss the people there but excited for the opportunity in Dallas!— Kellen Moore (@KellenMoore_11) September 7, 2015
