What seemed inevitable finally occurred this past offseason. Kyle Orton resigned himself to being a backup and signed a three-year contract with Dallas. While Orton isn’t worth grabbing in any fantasy format, it is worth noting that he has put together some decent seasons. That makes him a solid pickup as your QB2 if Tony Romo gets hit with the injury bug – not a ridiculous proposition given the state of the Cowboys offensive line.

Coach exercises opt-out clause
STATEMENT FROM BUFFALO BILLS OWNER TERRY PEGULA:
“Doug Marrone informed me late today that he has decided to exercise the option clause in his contract and relinquish his responsibilities as our head coach."
FF Today's Take:Add the Bills to the list of teams looking for a new coach this offseason. Buffalo is coming off a disappointing year and will also need to figure out what to do at the quarterback position where EJ Manuel has struggled when healthy and Kyle Orton has retired.
Kyle Orton retires-- Mon Dec 29 11:55 am --
Veteran calls it quits at 31 years old
The 10-year NFL veteran ended all the talk Monday morning when he surprisingly announced his retirement from football.
"I just have been going at it for 10 years, and it's just a family decision, and I've decided to get home and be a dad and call it a day," the 31-year-old Orton said. (USA Today)
FF Today's Take:Kyle Orton became the Bills starting QB in Week 5 throwing for 3,018 yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. The Bills now find themselves with EJ Manuel and Jeff Tuel on the QB depth chart. Expect Buffalo to be shopping in the free agent QB market this off-season.
