The Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday cut former Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore from their active roster.

The Dallas Morning News reported that the team plans to sign Moore to the practice squad if he clears waivers. Every other NFL team will have a chance to add him to the active roster first.

Moore, who earned a college football record 50 wins in 53 games at Boise State, spent the past three seasons as the No. 3 quarterback with the Detroit Lions. He was cut before the season and decided to sign with the Cowboys’ practice squad. He was moved to the active roster when starter Tony Romo was injured and spent two games as the backup quarterback but still hasn’t appeared in a game.

Ironically, a story on DallasCowboys.com on Tuesday called for the team to give Moore a chance to start. The writer referenced the deluge of requests from Idaho that Moore get a chance.
