Free-agent quarterback Ryan Leaf arrived in Dallas on Tuesday night with the expectation that he will sign a contract and begin practicing with the team Wednesday morning.
The explosive Leaf has been always been the apple of Jerry Jones eye, and he now becomes another option should the "Quincy Carter experiment" fail miserably.
The Cowboys will make Leaf their third quarterback. Clint Stoerner, who now holds that position, will be released and placed on the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Leaf was the second overall pick behind Peyton Manning in the 1998 NFL draft and has been cut by the San Diego Chargers and Tampa Bay Bucs over the course of the last 6 months.
The former Washington State standout is blessed with a world of athletic ability and could possibly be a great fit for this offense. His strong arm and tall body could allow him to become a force in the league, all he needs to do is grow up first. His off the field tantrums have most of the league viewing Leaf as a longshot at best.
