Josh Ellis broke down the Cowboys quarterback situation:
Tony Romo: Another career season for Romo only yielded eight wins for the Cowboys in 2011. It's not at all out of the question for him to put up even better numbers in 2012, but can the team capitalize?
Kyle Orton: An ideal backup, he'll give the Cowboys a chance to win each week if Romo is out for an extended period.
Stephen McGee: There doesn't appear to be much of an upside to keeping McGee, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal. Could he net a draft pick via trade?
Rudy Carpenter: If McGee is jettisoned, the club will want keep a third QB on the practice squad. Though he's been a pro for three years already, Carpenter is still eligible.
