Brandon Weeden wants Cowboys back up job whether Kyle Orton shows up or not

Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden isn’t worried about Kyle Orton’s situation right now and doesn’t plan on competing any differently during training camp whether he shows up or not.

“I’m going to go about my business the same way regardless. I haven’t met Kyle, so I can’t really speak on it, but whatever he decides to do – it’s kind of out of my control,” Weeden said, via DallasCOwboys.com. “So what I’m worried about is, if I’m running with the twos out there, do my job to make the twos better. I want to make the team better any way I can, so it doesn’t change my mindset or the way I feel about it.”

Weeden made it clear his goal is to be the Cowboys’ back up quarterback.

“I just want to continue to get comfortable in the offense, and then obviously my goal is to be the backup quarterback,” he said. “I want to be the backup quarterback and be on this football team and help them get better any way I can – whether that’s giving the defense a look, or whatever that is.”
