Dallas Cowboys backup QB Kyle Orton has been absent from voluntary minicamps and he has been contemplating about retirement. If Orton chose to retire, he could be giving up a lot of dough. The Cowboys could look to get back some of his signing bonus if he does choose to retire and he also could be fined by the team for not showing up to minicamp.
Ian Rapoport is reporting that Orton was not in attendance for Tuesday’s mandatory minicamp. He also wasn’t in attendance for physicals yesterday either. It doesn’t seem like the money is too important to him at this time.
The team was optimistic that he would return to the field during minicamp because of the amount of money that he would have to give up, but he still has not been seen on the field.
With Orton out of camp and Tony Romo resting his back injury, Brandon Weeden has been taking the snaps with the first team. That can’t make the Cowboys fans feel too comfortable about the upcoming season.
