Cowboys brought in Mike Kafka, are they worried about Tony Romo?
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.
