DALLAS — Quarterback Bernie Kosar, released by the Cleveland Browns Monday, will sign with the Dallas Cowboys, it was reported Tuesday night.
The Dallas Morning News and two television stations--WFAA-TV in Dallas and WYTV in Youngstown, Ohio--said Kosar will sign today with the Super Bowl champions.
"The club really has no comment at this particular time," Cowboy spokesman Rich Dalrymple said.
Kosar is particularly attractive to the Cowboys in the wake of an injury to Troy Aikman. Aikman suffered a pulled hamstring Sunday in the third quarter of the Cowboys' 31-9 victory over the New York Giants.
Kosar, 29, played for Cowboy Coach Jimmy Johnson at the University of Miami in 1984. He led Miami to a national title in 1983, the year before Johnson joined the Hurricanes.
