Bollinger stops by Valley Ranch

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

As we predicted over the weekend, former Vikings quarterback Brooks Bollinger has made an appearance at the Cowboys' practice facility. The 28-year-old quarterback is only 2-8 as a starter since entering the league in 2003, but Dallas felt the need to bring him in.

His arrival , which will likely happen after the Browns game, could spell the end for Richard Bartel, who is currently on the team's practice squad. Bartel had a strong showing in a victory over the Bollinger-led Vikings on Saturday, but it may not have been enough. You have to love the kid's determination, though.

"I don't really care about that, bring them in," said Bartel. "I'd love the opportunity to show them I can play at their level. I'm very motivated."
