Quarterback Mike Kafka worked out for team officials with wide receivers Braylon Bell and Maurice Williams. Currently, the Cowboys have two quarterbacks on the roster, Romo and Kyle Orton, a bunch of 30-something veterans with a 178 starts combined on their resumes.
Signing Kafka as the No. 3 quarterback wouldn’t be a bad idea. There is nothing wrong with having a player such as Kafka, a former fourth-round pick by the Philadelphia Eagles, on the roster.
But does it mean Romo won’t be ready for offseason workouts and the Cowboys are protecting themselves in case that happens?
I cannot blame them, to be honest. The Cowboys need contingency plans should Romo get a setback during his rehab. It seems Romo is fine, for now, and should be ready. Even though they did not sign Kafka, expect them to draft a younger quarterback.
Free agent QB Mike Kafka is likely to sign with the Cowboys on Friday.
