On the first say of voluntary workouts for the Dallas Cowboys backup quarterback Kyle Orton was nowhere to be seen reports the Star Telegram.

Orton, 31, had been listed as the backup for the Cowboys behind Tony Romo. If he walks away he would be leaving $3.25 million on the table.

That Orton did not show up hardly comes as a surprise. He has been rumored to be considering retirement for months and the Cowboys recently signed Brandon Weeden as insurance if Orton were to walk away.

Last season Orton started the Cowboys week 17 loss to Philadelphia after Tony Romo underwent back surgery. Overall Orton appeared in three games completiting 65 percent of his throws for 398 yards, with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
