Cowboys signed QB Caleb Hanie to a one-year contract.

Hanie, 28, hasn't appeared in a game since compiling an 0-4 record for the Bears in 2011, completing just 50 percent of his passes for 613 yards, three touchdowns, and nine interceptions. He's merely a camp arm for Dallas. The move is another sign the Cowboys don't expect Kyle Orton back.
Apr 23 - 4:44 PM

Browns waived QB Caleb Hanie.

It's a sign Brandon Weeden (concussion) will get cleared to back up Jason Campbell for Week 15. Hanie spent only one week on the Browns' active roster.

Browns signed QB Caleb Hanie.

Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell are both in the concussion program, which left trick shot quarterback Alex Tanney as the only healthy quarterback on the roster. Hanie hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2011, when he filled in for the Bears. The Browns are likely praying that Campbell can get cleared in time for Sunday's game at New England. Campbell has been cleared for exercise.

Free agent QB Caleb Hanie will work out for the Browns Tuesday.

With Jason Campbell dealing with a concussion, Hanie is a candidate to back up Brandon Weeden in Week 13. He was the No. 3 quarterback behind Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler in Denver last season and has been out of football since being released by the Ravens during final cuts.
Tue, Nov 26, 2013 11:27:00 AM

Ravens signed QB Caleb Hanie to a one-year contract.

Hanie has started four games in his NFL career, going 0-4 with three touchdowns and 10 interceptions in those opportunities. He'll try to beat out Tyrod Taylor for the backup job in Baltimore.
Tue, Apr 16, 2013 11:55:00 AM

ESPN Chicago reports the Ravens are "expected to sign" free agent QB Caleb Hanie.

Hanie, 28, spent last season as a weekly inactive behind Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler in Denver. He was released last month. Hanie saw the most extensive action of his career with the Bears in 2011. He started four games down the stretch with Jay Cutler injured and threw three touchdowns and nine interceptions, killing any chance Chicago had at the playoffs.

Broncos released QB Caleb Hanie.

Hanie was signed by the Broncos last offseason to be the No. 2 quarterback behind Peyton Manning, but rookie Brock Osweiler beat him out for the job. He's a mediocre talent, and there was no chance Denver was going to pay him the $1.375 million he was due.
Mon, Mar 11, 2013 05:22:00 PM

Broncos re-signed QB Caleb Hanie.

The Broncos just released Hanie on Saturday, but always intended to bring him back after Week 1. The maneuver prevents Hanie's 2012 salary from becoming guaranteed. It's unclear if Hanie or rookie Brock Osweiler is Peyton Manning's primary backup, but our best guess would be Hanie.
Mon, Sep 10, 2012 03:39:00 PM

Broncos released QB Caleb Hanie.

Hanie was released before Week 1 so that his $1 million salary would not be guaranteed. He is expected to be re-signed next week. Rookie Brock Osweiler will be the No. 2 quarterback on Sunday night. Defensive tackle Sealver Siliga was signed from the practice squad to take Hanie's roster spot.

Sat, Sep 8, 2012 02:30:00 PM

No portion of Broncos QB Caleb Hanie's two-year, $2.25 million contract is guaranteed unless he makes the final 53.

Hanie appears unlikely to beat out rookie Brock Osweiler, so he's battling Adam Weber for one spot, for now. The Broncos could also make a move for a more capable veteran before the season. Weber still has practice squad eligibility.

Caleb Hanie was "clearly" the No. 2 QB as the Broncos kicked off training camp Thursday.

It's worth noting because Adam Weber closed out minicamp ahead of Hanie in the beat writers' eyes. With Brock Osweiler locked into the developmental role, Hanie and Weber are battling for one roster spot.

Thu, Jul 26, 2012 08:04:00 PM

Broncos agreed to terms with QB Caleb Hanie on a two-year contract.

Denver was Hanie's lone free agent visit. While he'd flashed promise in preseasons past, Hanie went 0-4 in spot starts for the Bears last season and was benched for street free agent Josh McCown. The Broncos shouldn't be done adding QB talent with Hanie and Adam Weber on the roster behind Peyton Manning. Look for a mid- to late-round pick on the position in April's draft.
Sat, Mar 24, 2012 07:14:00 PM

The Broncos are "aggressively chasing" free agent QB Caleb Hanie.

Vying with Tyler Palko as the worst quarterback to step on an NFL field last season, Hanie would be Peyton Manning's backup. It's an extremely odd choice considering Manning's fragile health and the fact that the Bears doubled down on backups this offseason after being stung by Hanie's terrifically poor play. The Broncos have splurged elsewhere in free agency, however, and must go cheap on what could be a highly critical roster spot.

Sat, Mar 24, 2012 10:42:00 AM

The Broncos will talk to free agent QBs Caleb Hanie and Billy Volek about backing up Peyton Manning, according to the Denver Post.

ESPN Chicago reports Hanie will visit the Broncos on Wednesday, and Volek is already in Denver to meet with the club. A local product from Colorado State, Hanie was banished from Chicago after a disastrous four-game stint that took the Bears out of playoff contention last season. He's not much of a "Plan B" for John Elway's Broncos.
