The first part happened in the last week when free agency began. The first move they made was a head scratcher for many fans and media members alike. The Cowboys signed first-round bust and quarterback Brandon Weeden. Huh? Are you kidding me? The quarterback that is 30 years old and is in his second year and already sucks at his job. Plus, we have quarterback Kyle Orton backing up starting quarterback Tony Romo. Now, there are rumors that Orton wants to retire, but if he does retire, then he owes the Cowboys a $3 million dollar check. He won’t do that, no smart person would. So why sign Weeden? Because he is cheap and Orton has a 4.5 million dollar cap hit. That is way too much going to a back-up quarterback. This point was thought of by Gavin Dawson of the Fan. He mentions that someone in the front-office must be pulling the strings on this move. Weeden comes in as a cheap back-up quarterback and Orton gets cut to save more money in 2015.
