If you were hoping that Tim Tebow would be suiting up for the Dallas Cowboys in 2013, your dreams were dashed by Jerry Jones on Wednesday. During an hour-long conference call with season-ticket holders, the Cowboys owner and general manager was asked if the team has had any luck in acquiring the former Denver Broncos and New York Jets quarterback. Jones didn't seem interested in talking about any backup quarterbacks not named Kyle Orton. "We feel really good about Kyle Orton," Jones responded. "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 backup 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." The Cowboys haven't drafted a quarterback since 2009 when they selected Stephen McGee in the fourth round. According to Jones, the Cowboys "didn't see a quarterback that we wanted to invest the time in" that was available when they were on the clock during the third, fourth or fifth rounds of this year's draft.
