In a move that’s being read by some as a sign that the Dallas Cowboys are working on a contingency plan, in the event that Tony Romo experiences a setback in his rehab from back surgery, the team worked out former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Kafka on Thursday.
Interestingly, this is the second time in as many offseasons that the Cowboys have taken a look at the Northwestern product.
A fourth round pick by the Eagles in 2010, Kafka hasn’t played a down in the NFL since 2011, when he appeared in four games and went 11 of 16 for 107 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. Last summer, Kafka spent time on the Patriots’ and Jaguars’ practice squads but was released by Jacksonville in August.
