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

    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.

    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.
