The Dallas Cowboys are bringing in free agent Miami quarterback Matt Moore and Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Cedric Thornton for visits at the team’s Valley Ranch headquarters, according to sources.

Moore was cut in training camp with the Cowboys back in 2007 before building a nine-year career with the Carolina Panthers and Dolphins.

The Cowboys are targeting Matt Moore as a potential backup for starter Tony Romo.

Moore, 32, has a 13-12 record as a starter. He would compete with Kellen Moore for reps behind Romo and a potential bridge between a rookie draft pick.

The versatile Thornton, 27, would help shore up a depleted defensive end position. He can play inside and outside.

The Cowboys will have competition to sign Thornton, as his list of suitors include the Seattle Seahawks.

The Cowboys also have interest in Atlanta Falcons defensive end Adrian Clayborn, per a source, but no visits have been scheduled.

As free agency looms, the owner says there are reasons he may want the controversial defensive end back with Dallas. (Video by Clarence Hill)

At the NFL combine, Jones discussed the possibility of drafting a running back early this year.
