CLEVELAND — With backup quarterback Kellen Moore suffering a broken ankle in practice earlier this week, the Dallas Cowboys have gone in search of a reserve signal-caller, and reports have tied “America’s Team” to Josh McCown of the Cleveland Browns.

According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, the Cowboys are interested in McCown as a backup for oft-injured starter Tony Romo, but the Browns are “reluctant” to make the deal.

In his first season with the Browns, McCown won the starting job over Johnny Manziel, but was hampered by injuries for the bulk of the year.

On the Browns’ very first drive of the 2015 season, McCown suffered a concussion while lunging for the end zone, and missed the following game. Later in the year, he played through shoulder and rib issues before succumbing to a broken collarbone in a Monday Night Football loss to the Baltimore Ravens in late November.

When healthy, McCown proved to be an impactful offensive player, as in eight games for the Browns, he completed 186 of his 292 attempts (63.7 percent) for 2,109 yards and 12 touchdowns against four interceptions.

Early in the 2015 season, McCown broke a pair of franchise records in a 33-30 win over the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium.

McCown completed 36 of his 51 throws for 457 yards and two touchdowns in the win over the Ravens. The 457 yards were a single-game franchise record, surpassing the previous mark of 444 collected by Brian Sipe against the Baltimore Colts on October 25, 1981.

For putting together a 457-yard, three-touchdown (two passing, one rushing) performance against the Ravens, McCown became the first Browns quarterback with three straight 300-yard passing games and was recognized as the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
