You forgot Randall Cunningham.  He stepped in for Troy Aikman in 2000 during one of his injuries.

What about Drew Pearson altho he was a receiver he did throw a few TD passes in his career.He did have an almost perfect passing percentage when throwing.

1. Reggie Collier (1986)- first black QB of the Cowboys. He was drafted in 1983 by the Cowboys in the 6th round, played 3 years in the USFL, and joined the Cowboys in 1986 for his only season with the team.

2. Rodney Peete (1994)- signed as a free agent from the Detroit Lions in 1994 as a backup to Troy Aikman in which turned out to be his only season with the Cowboys.

3. Randall Cunningham (2000)- signed as a free agent from the Minnesota Vikings in 2000 as a backup to Troy Aikman in which turned out to be his only season with the Cowboys.

4. Anthony Wright (2000-2001)- signed as a free agent from the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2000 originally as the 3rd string QB. With injuries at QB in his 2 years with the team, he got a chance to start a handful of games.

5. Tony Banks *(2001) - signed as a free agent from the Baltimore Ravens in 2001 to be the replacement for Troy Aikman, who had retired, as the starting QB. He was abruptly released in the preseason after the Cowboys chose to go with Quincy Carter.
