For us, it’s easy to discuss, debate, and just plain old talk about our favorite team all year long because we love to.

Therefore, The Landry Hat is starting a new daily series called Over/Under.
It’s fairly simple. We’ll present you a daily topic, You’ll tell us if you think that particular Cowboys player will get over or under that stat for the entire regular season and why.
Here’s today’s Over/Under question:
Will Kyle Orton play in 2014?
Here’s what you need to know: The 31-year old back-up quarterback has already indicated to the franchise of his desire to retire after refusing to appear at any of the voluntary and mandatory offseason practices so far. It is still unclear if Orton will attend training camp in late July. It is assumed his only hesitation in officially retiring from the NFL is the estimated $3 million of his $5 million signing bonus he would be required to repay the Cowboys by doing so.
In March of 2012, Orton signed a three-year, $10.5 million deal with the Cowboys as a free agent. Since then, Orton has played in just three games for the Cowboys. All of which were losses. He’s only started in one, the last game of 2013 season against the Philadelphia Eagles for the NFC East title and a postseason berth.
Now, it’s your turn. Answer the question below then head further down the page to our comment section to tell us why. Get in on the great conversation with passionate fans just like you by joining the ever growing Landry Hat community. Go Cowboys!
