Orton to be released

Share Tweet Email

(AP) — The Dallas Cowboys are releasing Kyle Orton after their backup quarterback missed all the offseason workouts amid reports he was considering retirement.

The 31-year-old Orton started the finale last year after Tony Romo injured his back a week earlier. The Cowboys lost to Philadelphia, their third straight season-ending defeat against an NFC East rival with a playoff berth on the line.

The new backup is likely to be Brandon Weeden, Cleveland’s first-round draft pick in 2012.
