Texans signed QB Stephen McGee to a reserve/future contract.
McGee didn't play in 2012 after being cut at the end of Cowboys training camp, but he did have workouts with the Bucs, Bears, and Dolphins. He'll battle Case Keenum for No. 3 duties behind Matt Schaub and T.J. Yates. Thu, Jan 24, 2013 04:40:00 PM

Dolphins worked out free agent QB Stephen McGee on Friday.

It's McGee's third known workout of the season. The Bucs and Bears previously had him in after he was among the Cowboys' final cuts prior to the season. Miami also had QB Josh Portis in on Friday.

The Bears worked out free agent QBs Stephen McGee and Josh Johnson Tuesday.

The Bears are likely just updating their emergency list, but it could also be a sign Jay Cutler's (neck) Week 15 status isn't assured. This is just McGee's second known workout since he was waived by the Cowboys at final cuts.

Free agent QB Stephen McGee worked out for the Bucs.

The Bucs are only two deep at quarterback, but it appears they were just doing their due diligence on the former Cowboy. McGee was terrible in the preseason and has no practice squad eligibility. Perhaps he'll resurface as a No. 2 or 3 quarterback during the year with a team racked by injuries.

Cowboys waived QB Stephen McGee.

The Cowboys will roll with just Kyle Orton behind Tony Romo. On notice this preseason, McGee responded by completing only 27-of-49 passes for 310 yards, zero scores and a pick. McGee's development has clearly stalled, though owner Jerry Jones claimed Thursday he's drawn interest from other teams.

Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones hinted that other teams have shown interest in QB Stephen McGee.

McGee, fighting for the third-string job behind Tony Romo and Kyle Orton, is on the roster bubble. He'll also be an unrestricted free agent after this season, meaning he can be probably had right now for a late-round conditional draft pick. McGee went 27-of-49 (55.1 percent) for 310 yards with no touchdowns and one interception this preseason.

Josh Ellis of Dallascowboys.com says "there doesn't appear to be much of an upside" to keeping QB Stephen McGee on the roster this season.

Dallas showed its lack of confidence in McGee when they signed Kyle Orton to back up Tony Romo. Additionally, Rudy Carpenter was claimed off waivers and may have an edge on McGee for the No. 3 job because he's eligible for the practice squad. Ellis considers McGee a candidate for trade or release.

According to ESPN Dallas, the Cowboys "clearly aren’t excited" about third-string QB Stephen McGee's development.

Reporter Tim MacMahon believes McGee will be forced to compete with waivers pickup Rudy Carpenter for a roster spot. McGee has completed just 46 of his 82 career passes, throwing for 420 yards, three touchdowns and six interceptions across parts of three games. He wasn't particularly impressive last preseason.

Cowboys third-string QB Stephen McGee had an "inconsistent" week of mandatory minicamp while seeing an increase in reps.

He got more action as Kyle Orton nursed a hamstring injury. McGee reportedly struggled, particularly in red-zone situations, and showed poor touch on his passes. In limited game action, McGee has not appeared to be a natural thrower of the football. His roster spot could be in danger in training camp.
Fri, Jun 15, 2012 12:42:00 PM

The Dallas Morning News believes QB Stephen McGee's development has been "stunted."

It was obvious that the Cowboys had lost faith in McGee when they tried to claim Kyle Orton off waivers in October and subsequently signed the veteran to a high-end backup contract in March. McGee and Rudy Carpenter will reprise their 2009 camp battle for the No. 3 QB gig this summer.
Tue, Apr 10, 2012 02:11:00 PM

The Dallas Morning News confirms the Cowboys will pursue a veteran backup for Tony Romo when free agency begins on March 13.

Stephen McGee will be entering the final year of his rookie contract and hasn't done enough to prove he can be Romo's full-time backup. Owner Jerry Jones and head coach Jason Garrett recently indicated that Dallas has no plans to go after a quarterback in April's draft.
Sat, Mar 3, 2012 09:15:00 PM

Owner Jerry Jones has hinted the Cowboys will pursue a veteran backup for Tony Romo following the retirement of Jon Kitna.

It appears Stephen McGee is headed for another year of third-string duty. "If somebody really has to start taking snaps, you'd like to see a guy with more experience (than McGee)," Jones said. The Cowboys should have little trouble finding a new backup in a market saturated with veteran signal callers.
Sat, Jan 28, 2012 12:18:00 PM

The Cowboys are still evaluating Stephen McGee's progress as a candidate for the No. 2 QB role in 2012.

"We like what he's done," said coach Jason Garrett. "But it's an important position, and we've got to make sure we have enough people if for no other reason than guys get hurt." The Cowboys submitted a waiver claim for Kyle Orton and waited weeks to send Jon Kitna to injured reserve. Their actions suggest a lack of faith in McGee as the primary backup to Tony Romo.
Fri, Jan 20, 2012 09:00:00 AM

Stephen McGee completed 24-of-38 passes for 182 yards and a touchdown against the Eagles in Week 16.

McGee played all but the opening drive, failing to make a strong statement for the backup job in 2012. McGee's pocket presence was questionable, as was his chemistry with the top three receivers. As Tony Romo's X-rays were negative, we fully expect McGee to be back on the bench for Week 17 at the Giants.
Sat, Dec 24, 2011 07:31:00 PM

Beat writer Charean Williams believes Stephen McGee will be the long-term backup to Tony Romo.

McGee isn't going to beat out Jon Kitna this year, but Kitna turns 39 in September. The 2009 fourth-rounder will be expected to step into the backup chair as soon as 2012.
