What is Kyle Orton's contract situation?
As long as there are threads discussing releasing various players, what is the contract situation of Kyle Orton, and what would be the salary cap effect of releasing him and signing a cheaper backup?
Having the top (and expensive) backup quarterback is ridiculous for a team with the holes that we have. I can understand a real contender having a skilled, high-price backup. I don't know why the Cowboys have one. Well, I do. It's because our management is still living in 1992 and think we need Steve Beurlein.
Nonetheless, this is a piece of fat that we ought to consider trimming.
