They’ve found their man in Kyle Orton.
Orton and the Cowboys reached agreement today on a three-year contract, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He became Dallas’ best option after the Chicago Bears signed Jason Campbell as their backup Tuesday.
The Cowboys put in a claim for him then, but Orton was awarded to the Kansas City Chiefs, who ranked higher on the waiver wire list. He played in four games with KC and was best known for his $2.5-million flea flicker. Orton spent his first three seasons in the NFL in Chicago, then played in Denver for three.
