2012 NFL Free Agency: Kyle Orton Visiting Dallas Cowboys

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, journeyman quarterback Kyle Orton will be visiting the Dallas Cowboys, who may be looking for a new backup quarterback behind Tony Romo since Jon Kitna is retiring:

Orton was released by the Denver Broncos after Tebow-mania took hold and then eventually made his way to the Kansas City. There, he led the Chiefs to two wins in their last three games, including a win over the Green Bay Packers, who were undefeated at the time.

The 30-year old QB would likely want a starting job, but a job is better than no job.

Romo has been banged up in each of the last two seasons and he missed 10 games in 2010. So if Orton took a backup job in Dallas, there's a chance he could make it on the field.
