Former Broncos starting quarterback Kyle Orton is headed to Dallas this evening for negotiations per Adam Schefter. For a guy who was touted as “too good to bench” Kansas City didn’t seem too keen on keeping the old veteran around to compete with Matt Cassel. Kidding aside the Cowboys make sense for Kyle. Tony Romo was prone to injuries last season and having a guy who can step in and “manage a game” would make good football sense for Big D.
More visits: chad Henne expected to visit Jacksonville, Kyle Orton expected to visit Dallas.

It’s also being reported that recently released Chiefs’ cornerback Brandon Carr will be visiting with Dallas. Denver was seen as a very likely landing spot for Carr. However it now looks like he has become the Cowboy’s #1 cornerback target after vet releasing Terrance Newman earlier today. Michael Lombardi is reporting that the Boys’ are throwing big money his way.
