Dallas Cowboys looking for third quarterback for training camp

See also

The Dallas Cowboys want to enter training camp with three quarterbacks on the roster, and looking at how the 2013 NFL season ended, that makes sense. According to ESPN on Feb. 10, Dallas has tried out six quarterbacks over the last three months, including Mike Kafka recently, and actively want to bring in someone soon.

When the Cowboys came to the end of the season, they needed to win one more game to make it to the playoffs. However, Tony Romo was injured and Kyle Orton was the only hand left. The Cowboys had to sign a 41-year-old retired Jon Kitna who said he hoped he wouldn't have to play because that wouldn't be good.

Kafka worked out with Dallas last week but just signed to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers instead. This was the second time Dallas has tried to sign Kafka, but also the second time he went elsewhere. Last time around, he signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Last offseason, Dallas had Kyle Orton, Nick Stephens and Dalton Williams in the offseason and in the preseason they worked with Nick Stephens and Alex Tanney. The Cowboys let both men go, hoping to re-sign Tanney to their practice squad, but the Cleveland Browns claimed him.

The quarterbacks that Dallas has worked out over the past three months include Derek Carr, Tyler Thigpen, John Skelton, Richard Bartel and Caleb Hanie, as well as Kafka. Kyle Orton played well enough in the final season loss that he will definitely be back, but the Cowboys need depth.
