A dozen different cogs are in motion as the Dallas Cowboys are making cap space in order to add potential defensive starters Justin Durant and Will Allen to the roster.
Good news: Cowboys fixed Jason Witten (13 catches) and sliced their penalties to only 2. Bad news: DeMarco Murray only gained 24 yards on 11 carries.
Orton has been on-and-off during his NFL career with the Bears and Broncos…and now that Cowboys have him standing by as Romo’s replacement.

The Dallas Cowboys signed Kansas City Chiefs QB Kyle Orton to a 3 year contract on Tuesday. He will now take over as the primary back up for Tony Romo.
The Dallas Cowboys are sticking to their plans in free agency, acquiring primary targets even after being penalized by the NFL with a salary cap reduction.
