Brad Johnson Officially Released

Cowboys fans may be relieved to learn that backup quarterback Brad Johnson has been released from the team. Johnson went 1-2 in 2008 when filling in for an injured Tony Romo.

The Dallas Morning News reports:

The Cowboys have officially decided to part ways with Brad Johnson, informing the veteran backup quarterback of his release Thursday.

Johnson started three games and the Cowboys went 1-2 during Tony Romo’s absence with a fractured pinkie. Johnson completed 41 of 78 passes for 427 yards with two touchdowns and five interceptions last. He was also sacked eight times.

The move saves the Cowboys about $2 million against the salary cap. He was scheduled to make $2 million this season and was due a $500,000 roster bonuses. He also had $1 million in incentives.

The Cowboys will be in the market for a backup in free agency and could bring back Brooks Bollinger, who is also a free agent.

Farewell dude.
