Stephen McGee is an American football back up quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. He played college football for Texas A&M.

PRO:
With their first pick of the fourth round (101st overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys selected quarterback Stephen McGee. With Tony Romo entrenched as the franchise's starting quarterback, along with veteran quarterback Jon Kitna to serve as Romo's primary backup, McGee's role will continue to be centered on learning the Cowboys offense as he progresses in the transition to become a pro quarterback. He has demonstrated his athletic ability and is a strong-armed passer with the ability to sidestep the rush and make the throw on the run. At Texas A&M, McGee finished his collegiate career as the school's all-time leader in completion percentage (59.5%) and was second in total offense (7,225), fourth in career passing yards (5,475) and third in rushing yards by a quarterback (1,750).
