Dallas can take some hits for their draft but they rule the world in UDFA

I tried a number of time to open that e-mail, but it kept saying scripis running and wouldn't let me read it.

But I'm a little confused about the 0....but 1 is still on the team drunken

Just find the part about the draft.

I read an article a few weeks ago about the high number of players making and staying on the team since Garrett took over. Now if they could just start winning.

First they are going to have to not be devastated by injuries. Is there any doubt in anyone's mind that they win that win or go home game against the Eagles if Romo played?

That pretty much covers it
Hawk

One thing that's going on....is the media for some reason are really hyping some of these UDFA's.

Without a doubt some of them could stick if the other players start to fall out.

We need healthy bodies on the field who are not taking a one week crash course, trying to learn the Cowboys scheme.

I just don't want to see the team bring in guys who have been on their couch for two years. Sure we need starters, but we also need backups and backups to backups.

That and a hope that a certain QB coming off back to back back surgeries, makes it through the year. It has become obvious that Orton doesn't give a shite. He has informed the team he will not participate in any of the off season work.
Nightrider

Wilson did not sound like a happy camper during his short interview. I think he made it clear he really doesn't care if Orton shows up or not.

Wilson said he'll go with Weeden who is learning the new system.
Garrett said, Orton will be there when Mini camp starts, and that's what he is required to do.

Actually as far as I'm concerned Orton has really done nothing for all the money he makes. It must be a tough life standing around on the sidelines holding a clipboard.
Hawk

I think its really a simple matter here. Orton doesn't want to retire, he wants to be traded to a team where he can start and make more money.

I do believe the Cowboys are waiting for some teams to call. I thinks its a high high possibility Orton will be gone sometime in 2014. As QB's in the league get hurt this season, the phone at Valley Ranch will start to ring.

Can you say Weeden, looks to me like he is the back up for awhile.

Weeden is a spare..

I actually think Orton wants to retire, but like the hooker who hooks because she needs the money, Orton won't let $$ Millions $$ set there. He will show up but not until he has to. IMO
LoneStar

This is somebody who agrees with you Hawk, but he's nobody important.

One thing I know for sure is, Garrett said he spoke with Ortin and that Ortin will be in camp

Dallas Cowboys Rumors: Is Kyle Orton Trying to Force His Way Out of Dallas?

May 19, 2014 11:54 pm EDT by Kevin Saito



Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports


How badly does QB Kyle Orton want out of Dallas?
Apparently, badly enough that he’s willing to take a hit to the wallet that’s more than what most of us make in a year – or two. Thanks to a clause in his contract, Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys can levy a hefty fine should Orton, like some other players, not complete a set percentage of offseason workouts. In this case, he’s looking at a salary “de-escalation” of about $75,000 for not showing up to Dallas’ offseason program.

That’s a lot of cash and seems to indicate that Orton wants out of Big D in a big way.
Rumors and speculation suggest that Orton’s absence is because he’s attempting to force his way out of Dallas by forcing the Cowboys to release him. Orton is just 31 years old, has been effective as a starter at times and no doubt believes he still has a lot of football left in him and should be a starting QB in the NFL right now.


And maybe he does have some good football in him, and could be a starter in the league. The problem for Orton is that Jerry Jones remains married to the idea that Tony Romo – despite a track record of mediocrity, playoff failures, three consecutive 8-8 seasons and a four season playoff drought – is the one who will lead Dallas to the promised land.
Orton seems to have finally figured out that as long as Romo is able to walk and talk, he’s going to be under center for Dallas, which means he will continue to languish on the bench. After two seasons in which he’s thrown a combined 61 passes, about all that can be said is, it certainly took him long enough to figure it out.


Perhaps when Orton signed that three-year deal with Dallas back in 2012, he did so with the idea that he would be able to supplant Romo the way he’d been supplanted by Tim Tebow while with the Denver Broncos. Which was a foolish notion to begin with. But after an offseason in which Dallas has signed veteran QBs Brandon Weeden, Caleb Hanie and UFDA Dustin Vaughan – and Romo is still firmly entrenched as the starter – Orton no doubt finally sees the writing on the wall, and realizes that if he wants a shot at starting, it will have to be somewhere other than Dallas.


His problem though, is that he is still under contract to the Cowboys for another season. And Dallas, at least to this point, doesn’t seem interested in playing ball. Both Jones and head coach Jason Garrett have said they expect to see Orton at the team’s mandatory minicamp in June.

Knowing they have a 34-year-old quarterback coming off of another back surgery, and a ragtag group of backups without any track record of sustained success, the Cowboys don’t have a lot of incentive to part ways with Orton — and he subsequently doesn’t have a lot of leverage. If he fails to show up for the start of minicamp, he’s facing even more fines, and will still be under contract to Dallas for the whole season.

Nobody knows how this is all going to shake out, but so far, Orton hasn’t given any indication that he plans to attend any of the team’s activities and workouts. For their part, the Cowboys continue saying they hope to have him back in the fold and ready to play soon.
It’s an interesting standoff, and it will be even more interesting to see who blinks first.
Desperado

I'm on that bandwagon, Orton will be traded, does anybody really care? This guy wants a chance to prove he was better than Tebow, it won't happen in Dallas.
LoneStar

I'm sure there are teams who want Orton. But nobody wants to give the Cowboys any picks for a guy who keeps crying about retiring.

The Cowboys are going to call this ****** bluff, they have nothing to lose by doing so.

Orton is not going to get a Ratboy deal!
Nightrider

Orton is through in Dallas, first offer from another team and he's on DA PLANE.

He is quickly turning into a POS, according to the media. But maybe he'll show up and at least hold the clipboard for his 3 mil.

No soup for this guy

Dallas does seem to have a propensity as of late to develop undrafted players into contributors.  I certainly hope this trend continues, but I will admit to not know much of anything about this year's crop of UDFAs.  Training camp should be fun, and I can't wait for the camp reports to start rolling in.

If we are to believe what the media is saying, 2 of the UDFA's will make the team. That's after watching them run around in shorts.

But camp hasn't even opened yet and people are just trying to find things to write about.

Just read a really stupid article about how the old Cowboys would draft a QB almost every year. Well in them olden day, you just kept drafting till all the players were picked.

But hey this breaking  news will get 5 pages of discussion elsewhere lmao.
Hawk

Cowboys had a great number of people long ago who would be considered UDFA's now a days.

Roger Staubach, Bobby Hayes just 2 H of F guys, comes to mind.

The first UDFA who comes to my mind was the original guy who made the #88 famous. Drew Pearson.

But yes the Cowboys do have a long history of finding those people others have over looked.
