The Facts: The Cowboys have waived Weeden, the team announced Tuesday.
Diehards Line: The move clears a roster spot for Tony Romo to be activated and is obviously tied to Romo’s health. The Cowboys have lost seven straight and haven’t won since Week 2, when Romo was injured. They were 0-3 with Weeden starting. Matt Cassel replaced Weeden last month, and Romo is expected to start Sunday when the Cowboys play the Dolphins. Weeden has lost his 11 starts, dating back to his rookie season of 2012 with the Browns. The Cowboys signed Weeden prior to the 2014 season.
