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.
