Jon Kitna joining Dallas Cowboys as QB insurance

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the Dallas Cowboys worked out David Carr, Tyler Thigpen, John Skelton and Caleb Hanie, only to send all four of the free-agent quarterbacks home without a contract.

Now we know why.

A person informed of the deal tells Rapoport the Cowboys are signing Jon Kitna to function as the third quarterback, behind Kyle Orton and an injured Tony Romo.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram first reported Dallas' interest in bringing back Kitna, who hasn't attempted an NFL pass since September of 2011.

Citing a lingering back injury, Kitna announced his retirement in early 2012 after 15 NFL seasons. Although he's a rusty 41-year-old, Kitna does make sense as an insurance policy in the sense that he knows Jason Garrett's offense after spending two seasons in Dallas.

@AdamSchefter: Cowboys QB Jon Kitna is taking the $53,000 that Dallas is paying him and donating it to his high school.
