While the Cowboys have been uncharacteristically quiet this offseason, their backfield situation is worth monitoring over the coming months.

Roundup: Fox thought Delhomme’s exit best for team

Late last season, Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme sat with a broken knuckle and Matt Moore filled in for the 12-year veteran. Moore went 4-1 as the starter, and earlier this month the team released Delhomme, choosing to stick with the 25-year-old Moore.
