Well, looks like the Cowboys are blinking again. According to ESPN Insider, Adam Schefter, the Cowboys will indeed be releasing Kyle Orton. As a result, he won’t be accountable for re-paying back his signing bonus.

In addition, the Cowboys will eat about $1.1 million for current 2014 cap and another $2.25 in 2015 – great…
The move will thrust Brandon Weeden to the #2 QB, and Caleb Hanie to #3. We could see the Cowboys adding another QB into the mix, unless they feel great about Weeden at #2, which looks like they may be.
