When Jon Kitna came out of retirement earlier this week to help as the third quarterback he is not only helping the Cowboys in an emergency situation to prepare for Sunday's do or die game against the Philadelphia Eagles he will also be coming to the aid of the impoverished Lincoln High School athletic department in Tacoma, Wash. It's Kitna's alma mater and it's where he returned to teach after retiring from the Cowboys following the 2011 season. He will get roughly $54,000 in salary for work this week after signing with the Cowboys who needed his services because starter Tony Romo is unlikely to play Sunday because of a back injury and there was no other quarterback on the roster behind backup Kyle Orton.
