Dallas Cowboys rumors: Jon Kitna re-signs with depleted Dallas Cowboys again

Dallas Cowboys rumors might catch some fans off guard. The latest Dallas Cowboys rumors have Jon Kitna coming on to replace Tony Romo on the active roster. A new report from ESPN on Tuesday (Dec. 24) has the team bringing in the 41-year-old veteran to help out the depth chart.

NFL Playoff Scenarios

Tony Romo hasn't been officially ruled out, but an injury to his back has many analysts predicting he won't play in Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles. If that is the case, backup Kyle Orton will get the start and now Kitna will serve as his backup.

It seems that the franchise also worked out David Carr, John Skelton, Tyler Thigpen, Caleb Hanie, and Richard Bartell as possible options, but decided to go with Kitna in the end. He played for the team in the past, but hasn't been in the league since the 2011 NFL season.

These Dallas Cowboys rumors seem to fully indicate that they don't believe Tony Romo will be able to play in the crucial Week 17 game. This match-up with the Eagles is going to determine which team wins the NFC East and heads to the 2014 NFL Playoffs. That underscores just how important it is, so bringing in someone who knows the system well seems like a move to hedge their bets.
