Dallas Cowboys backup quarterback Kyle Orton 's future with the team is still unknown, per ESPN.

Dallas Cowboys backup quarterback Kyle Orton 's future with the team is still unknown.

This is what ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer discussed in his May 19 blog

"Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has said the same thing regarding Kyle Orton the last few times he has met with the media. He 'anticipates,' Orton being with the team for the mandatory minicamp in June. 

"That does not mean Orton wants to play in 2014. It simply means he could show just to avoid a fine of roughly $70,000 for missing the mandatory camp. 

"Asked Saturday if that could be Orton's plan, Garrett said, 'You'll have to ask him that.' 

"Orton has been quiet. His agent, David Dunn, who also represents Garrett, said at the NFL owners meetings that retirement was never an option, yet Orton has yet to show up for the voluntary offseason conditioning program. 

"Orton took part in 2012 and '13. The Cowboys would like him to be around to learn some of the changes Scott Linehan is implementing offensively. They would like him to get more work as Tony Romo recovers from back surgery. They would like him to help the younger quarterbacks. 

"If Orton retires, he would owe the Cowboys $3 million of the $5 million signing bonus he received in 2012. Retirement is not an option. 

"If the Cowboys cut Orton after June 1, they save $3.25 million against the cap this year. Because of the voidable remaining years on his contract, he will count $2.255 million against the cap in 2015, anyway." 

Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson expressed disappointment in Orton's no-shows, per Nick Eatman of the team's official website: 

"However, quarterback coach Wade Wilson, who goes back with Orton to their days in Chicago, admitted a bit of frustration that Orton has been a no-show this offseason.

"'Kinda, I would love for his heart to be into football and be with the guys,' Wilson said of Orton. 'Especially since we've got some new stuff going on with Scott (Linehan).'

"'I would like for him to be here but it's certainly voluntary. There's nothing we can do about that.'

"Wilson, who served as the (Chicago) Bears' quarterback coach from 2004-06, coached Orton when he first got to the NFL in 2005. He said he reached out once to Orton this spring but has since backed off and still hasn't talked to him since the season ended. 

"'Not since the end of the year. I texted him once,' Wilson said. I know his agent real well. He said to hold off for now.'" 

Wilson also told Eatman that Weeden will be the No. 2 quarterback should Orton decide not to suit up in 2014. 

"That's one of the reasons why we signed him (Weeden). He's a first-rounder coming out. Big arm -- we like that. He's a mature guy.

"I don't think the stage will be too big for him. I think he's young enough that he hasn't taken a bunch of hits. He still has a lot of hits left in him.

 

"But we're still hopeful Kyle will be here. If he doesn't, we feel good about Brandon especially since he's going through our offseason program." 

The 31-year-old Orton is entering his ninth NFL season. He has amassed 15,019 passing yards, 83 touchdowns and 59 interceptions on a 79.9 percent passer rating through May 19, per ESPN stats
