Former Dallas Cowboys QB Kyle Orton played it like he was getting prepped to retire and he didn’t want to play the game any longer. Instead, Kyle Orton is signing a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills, per James Walker. Seems like a punk move by Orton, but he gets out of Dallas and now will be sitting behind E.J. Manuel in Buffalo. I guess he forgot to send in those retirement papers.
I am guessing that Orton just didn’t want to sit through training camp and deal with all that jazz. If that is the case, then what makes people believe that Orton will want to even open a new playbook and learn the terminology with his new team?
It makes no sense. Orton is talented and is one of the better backup quarterbacks available, but someone has to question his commitment at this time. He dipped out on training camp and begged for his team to cut him off the roster and decided to sign a deal right before the start of the season. What happens if Manuel goes down in the first game of the year? Orton wouldn’t even be ready to play in week 1.
