The Dallas Cowboys have made their first signing of the 2012 free agency period. Adam Schefter tweets that the Cowboys have reached a three-year deal with veteran quarterback Kyle Orton.

Still waiting on CB Brandon Carr. I like Orton in a pinch so this is much better than the older version of Kitna.

Cowboys signed QB Kyle Orton, formerly of the Chiefs, to a three-year contract.
Orton's first visit was his last. The money must be excellent, as Orton certainly could have found a better shot at starting if he let the quarterback market play out. He's an upgrade on the retiring Jon Kitna, who had long been one of the better backups in the league. Although many Cowboy fans will likely claim otherwise, Orton's signing should not be interpreted as any sort of a message to Tony Romo.

They claimed him when he was on waivers last year but didn't get him since another team claimed him also...so they have wanted him before.

I actually like the move. I mean how excited can you get for a backup....but considering the injury factors these days Orton has shown he can put up numbers when given a shot so I'd trust him more than the option they have.

Orton is definitely better than anything else you guys had behind Romo. If the money isn't too much, it should be a good signing. I would guess 2-3 mill a year over 3 years.

thought Orton may have got a chance starting somewhere like Cleveland or even Seattle if the Seahawks dont get Flynn

and a small wager - by what week will Orton be starter and Romo benched?

They ain't benching Romo. Orton was just brought in for insurance so the Boys aren't stuck with an elderly QB for 4-5 games.

Good pick up. I would have loved for the Texans to get Orton, because you know that he would be starting by week 8.
