Reports are coming in from The National Football Post that state that the Cowboys are giving up “late picks” in exchange for Lions quarterback Jon Kitna. He would come in and be the backup for Tony Romo, who as of right now does not have a true backup QB after the team dumped Brad Johnson earlier this week. Kitna has been in the league since 1997, and has played for the Seahawks, Bengals and Lions.
Last season with Detroit he started the first four games of the season, and had a QB rating of 72.2 with five TD’s and five picks. He fell out of favor with the coaching staff, and then was put on IR with a back injury. Kitna’s best season was 2003, when he started all 16 games for the Bengals, throwing for 26 TD’s and 15 interceptions with a QB rating of 87.4.
