Cowboys work out former Eagles QB Mike Kafka and two WRs on Thursday; no signings yet

Though quarterback Tony Romo is progressing well in his rehab from back surgery, the Dallas Cowboys could certainly at lease use another quarterback or two to throw passes in the off season program and minicamps.

Vetearn backup Kyle Orton is the only other quarterback on the roster.

To that end, the Cowboys worked out former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Kafka on Thursday, multiple sources confirmed.

Kafka, a former fourth-round pick of the Eagles in 2010, was given "a look-see" by the Cowboys along with former Arena League receivers Braylon Bell and Maurice Williams.

Kafka hasn't played in the NFL since he was released by the Eagles before the 2012 season. He spent time in camp with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2013 but was released before the season. Kafka didn't play as a rookie and played in four games with the Eagles in 2011.

Bell played in college at Abilene Christian but is a native of Dallas and product of South Oak Cliff high school. Williams played as a freshman at Pittsburgh before being ruled academically ineligible. He  bounced around the semi-pro and Arena league the last four years before being signed by the Indianapolis Colts last summer. He was released and given and injury settlement at the end of August.

The Cowboys have yet to decide if they will sign any of them.
