Report: Kyle Orton skips physical
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys quarterback Kyle Orton did not show up for his scheduled physical Monday ahead of this week's mandatory minicamp, reports ESPN.com. Orton, 32, has been wavering on whether to continue playing.

He's subject to a fine for missing the physical, and additional fines if he skips the three-day minicamp. Orton would have to repay $3.4 million of his signing bonus if he retires, the report said.

Coach Jason Garrett has said he expects Orton at the minicamp. Brandon Weeden figures to be Dallas' backup quarterback if Orton calls it quits.

Kyle Orton's status still unknown
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Cowboys are still unsure if quarterback Kyle Orton will show up for the mandatory minicamp June 17-19, reports ESPN.

Orton skipped the voluntary offseason program and organized team activities as he ponders his future about retirement. If he retires, he would have to re-pay the Cowboys $3 million of the $5 million signing bonus he received in 2011. If the Cowboys cut him, they would save $3.25 million against the 2014 cap, but he would count $2.25 million against the cap in 2015.

If Orton does not show up for the minicamp he would be subject to a fine of nearly $70,000. If he does show up, the Cowboys will monitor what type of shape he is in before putting him on the practice field.

Coach Jason Garrett reiterated that he anticipates Orton to take part in the minicamp, but he has not had any recent conversations with Orton. Garrett is not sure Orton has a copy of the playbook to understand the changes implemented by new playcaller Scott Linehan.

"We just have to work through it," Garrett said. "We'll have a minicamp next week that's mandatory, and we're hoping that Kyle Orton is here and part of it. He’s been a good football player for our team."

Report: Kyle Orton set to retire
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Kyle Orton has told the Cowboys he plans on retiring, NFL Network reports. However, the Cowboys told him they don't want him to retire because they still view him as a top backup. Additionally, the team will ask for his $3 million signing bonus back if he does follow through with his retirement. 

Orton has 83 touchdowns over a 75-game career that has lasted nine seasons.

Brandon Weeden provides insurance for Kyle Orton
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Cowboys anticipate quarterback Kyle Orton participating in the mandatory June minicamp, but if he retires they'll move forward with Brandon Weeden as Tony Romo's backup, reports the Dallas Morning News.

"Well, that's the plan," quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said. "That's one of the reasons we signed [Weeden]. We're still hopeful that Kyle will be here, but if he doesn't, we feel really good about Brandon, especially since he's going through our offseason program."
