Dallas signed Kyle Orton as Romo's backup.
I don't get this at all as I thought Stephen McGee was now ready to become the backup in Dallas. But I guess Jerry Jones felt that they needed a veteran guy to be the # 2 QB. CBS Sports had Orton rated at the 69th best Free Agent available and I think that's appropriate since I feel that this signing really sucks.
EDIT: Jesus H. Christ - I just read that Orton was signed to a 3 year deal !!!!!!! One year was bad enough but now we got him for 3 years.
You want to talk bad deals? THIS is a bad deal:
The Jaguars and Laurent Robinson agreed to a five-year, $32.5 million contract Wednesday evening, giving the team a much-needed splash in free agency. The deal includes $14 million guaranteed.
The Cowboys picked up Robinson of the Chargers scrap heap last year because they needed a third receiver. He put up decent numbers because most defenses the Boys played were keying on Dez, Austin, and Witten. He certainly isn't worth #1 reciever money. Jacksonville gave him more guaranteed money than Philly gave Jackson.
Orton is a very good backup QB. Anybody who saw last year how in-demand he was should see that.
Robinson could be a disaster because Gabbert is terrible. However, I just read that the Jags signed Henne. He'll win the job outright.
