    The Dallas Cowboys have no interest in free agent quarterback (to use the term loosely) Tim Tebow, which should come as little surprised, as seemingly no one has interest in the former Bronco and Jet.

    Jerry Jones said as much to reporters during a conference call on Wednesday.

    We feel really good about Kyle Orton,” Jones said, referring to the Dallas backup, per the Dallas Morning News. “And that’s where it all starts and stops right there. He will be used differently to some degree than we’ll use [Tony] Romo. But he’s very capable of winning big games and we know how important that back-up slot is, especially if it’s temporary if you don’t have Romo.

    “So we’re pretty set at quarterback and we wish Tim all the luck and all the best in the world. But we’re going forward there. What we need to look at at quarterback is what we might be doing with the third quarterback, and that remains to be seen.”

    Prior to the draft back in 2010, a tipsy Jones was caught on tape at a bar ripping Tebow’s abilities and dismissing the idea that Dallas would draft him. Since then, Tebow hasn’t done much to change the mind of the Cowboys’ owner or any of his other numerous detractors.
