Like how Kyle Orton put one over on Jerry Jones so he could take his bonus, run, and play somewhere else.
Jerry Jones said that Kyle Orton doesnt not want to retire and wants to play this year. Orton won the standoff.

Why Jones would spread this around is a mystery. If it is true that means that somehow Orton was able to convince the Cowboys he was going to retire so they might as well drop him--so they did. When they did it cost the team money, but since he was supposed to retire the idea must have been to clear a roster space.
But Orton has not filed. It is not clear who floated the notion of him retiring anyway. Sure enough--he hasn't.
Now Jones thinks Orton is looking to hook up with another team. If this is true--good for you Kyle. Good for you.
