Pelluer in the meantime held out, and in mid-October was traded to the Chiefs for a couple of low round draft choices.
Saw action in 5 contests, starting 3 in 1990, including a win over Seattle, when he threw for 205 yards and a TD.
Sprained knee and was out remainder of year.
As Steve DeBerg cemented his role as starter, Pelluer saw sparing playing time.
Pelluer joined the Denver Broncos in 1992 via Plan B, but he would not make the roster.
After a brief break, he’d play in the CFLUSA for the Blue Bombers in 1995, completing 9 of 17 passes for 112 yards and a TD, but was lost to injury after injury for the season in Week 2.
Pelluer signed on with the reborn World League in 1995, playing for the Frankfurt Galaxy and helping the team reach the World Bowl for the first time.
Retired after the 1996 campaign, playing mainly as a backup.
Since retirement has spent time in real estate with a specialization in commercial properties.
I always felt like Steve got a bad rap in Dallas, but he did also hold out at a critical time when the Cowboys were rebuilding. Then he got shipped to KC only to get stuck behind DeBerg. I had wanted to get Steve for a while- failing on him twice previously. -I even had his Starting Lineup figure!

Great card here of Shawn. Unless there were other team printed cards of him, this would be the only card that was produced of him. What a gem. Not sure if the 9 FF were a typo, but that’s an incredible feat if true.
