Kyle Orton reportedly did not get along with Tony Romo

Kyle Orton forced his way out of Dallas over the offseason and ended up signing with the Buffalo Bills, for whom he is now the starter. One report suggests that Orton’s poor relationship with Tony Romo was a factor in his decision to force his way out.

Here’s what ESPN’s Ed Werder tweeted on Tuesday:

Orton, who started and lost in Week 17 last year with a chance to get the Cowboys into the playoffs, threatened to retire in order to get Dallas to release him. After E.J. Manuel struggled in the preseason, the desperate Bills signed him to a two-year, $11 million deal. They’ve already installed him as their starter.

In addition to reportedly having a bad relationship with Romo, The Dallas Morning News’ Rick Gosselin said earlier this month that it appeared Orton grew tired of the circus in Dallas. All in all, we could sum up Orton’s time with the Cowboys by simply saying it was a poor fit.
