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.
