Will quarterback Kyle Orton continue his playing career?


Dallas Cowboys back up and Chicago Bears legend Kyle Orton may have played his final season in the National Football League.

Orton took over for the injured Tony Romo in the final game of the regular season, a game that decided who would walk away as the NFC East champions. His former team in Chicago was put in the same situation against the Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field.

Both Orton and Chicago failed to walk away with their respected division’s under their belts. Now according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Dallas Cowboys executive Vice President Stephen Jones said he was unsure if Orton was going to continue playing in 2014.

“No I don’t know [that he is coming back]. But I haven’t gone and asked him.” via Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Kyle Orton is the only quarterback behind Tony Romo on the depth chart. So it looks like they’ll either draft a quarterback and could possibly sign a back up just in case Orton decides to call it a career.

The 31 year old back up should be making a decision very soon.

    Easy money I would if they continue to pay me 3 million dollars. Obviously Jones thought we were a hit away from the super bowl. Shows you his miscalculation and poor football acumen but we are to oversee that. Please people stop going to games. Lets do something concrete to save the Cowboys.

    LOL after sitting on the bench all season your supposed to go to the superbowl with a banged up offense and a defense that couldn’t stop a high school football team from scoring. If kyle decides to hang it up with the cowboys ? I wouldn’t call it a retirement decision at all…as a matter of fact it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if kyle breaks his contract to play for a better NFL team.
