The Dallas Cowboys agreed to terms Friday with backup quarterback Cooper Rush on a two-year contract.

NFL Network reported the deal was worth up to $6 million, with the first year and signing bonus guaranteed.

Rush, 29, guided the Cowboys to four straight wins from Weeks 2-5 in 2022 after starter Dak Prescott injured his right thumb in the season opener.

Rush lost his fifth start -- on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6 -- and finished the year with a 58.0 completion percentage and 1,051 passing yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions.

Since making his NFL debut with Dallas in 2017, he has completed 125 of 212 passes for 1,475 yards with eight touchdowns and four picks in 19 games (six starts).
