Jon Kitna made the Seattle Seahawks in the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 1997.  Kitna is ready to retire at 39, which is 15 seasons after being Warren Moon’s backup.
Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports that Kitna informed Jerry Jones and the Cowboys officials that he’s ready to call it quits. Kitna’s contract was completed and because of his often injured back, he finished the season on injured reserve with a back injury.  Tony Romo‘s backup concludes a solid three-year run. Last year, there were some brief debates over Romo’s  status as starter.  He started 124 games total with the Seahawks, Bengals, Lions, and Cowboys, totaling 169 touchdowns with 165 interceptions. He won the AP Comeback Player of the Year award in 2003 with the Bengals.  Kitna finished with 16 touchdowns, 12 picks, and 7.4 yards-per-attempt a year ago. He started 124 games total with the Seahawks, Bengals, Lions, and Cowboys, totaling 169 touchdowns with 165 interceptions. He won the AP Comeback Player of the Year award in 2003 with the Bengals.

Since Romo is no spring chicken we need to start next season with a new, young, talented, backup for him. Someone that can be the anchor that a Super Bowl team needs. Romo only has a few years in him, at BEST, and in order to make the transition easy, Jones needs to go ahead and think about getting a QB that has raw talent that can be molded to fit into the ‘Boys offensive playbook! We need a lot of changes. May as well make the most major change in the ’12 draft.
