Cowboys unsure if Kyle Orton will return

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram,  the Dallas Cowboys don’t know if Kyle Orton plans on returning as a back up for next season.

Backup quarterback Kyle Orton, who has one year left on his contract, has yet to commit to playing next season.

According to vice president Stephen Jones and several other team sources, Orton has talked about walking away and the Cowboys don’t know his status for 2014.

“No I don’t know [that he is coming back],” Jones said. “But I haven’t gone and asked him.”

It sounds like Orton is pondering retirement.
