Broncos Want 2nd Round Pick For Orton

Kyle Orton was a key part of the trade that brought Jay Cutler to Chicago. He was supposed to be a quarterback that the Broncos could win with. Now it looks like Orton will be on the move again.

The head coach that traded Cutler away from Denver, Josh McDaniels, is no longer part of the organization. And according to a report by the Denver Post, all it will take is a second round draft pick for Orton to meet the same fate.

After drafting Tim Tebow, the clock started to tick on Orton’s Denver career. When the team made the decision to start Tebow, that clock had run out.

Orton, more than likely, doesn’t want to become a backup quarterback to Tebow, and Brady Quinn, the Broncos third quarterback, could easily fill that role. So as a result, Orton could find himself in a trade once again. This time it probably won’t steal so many headlines.

    Not much chance that they’ll get a 2nd….lucky to get a 4 or 5.

  • Larry in a New York Exhile

    Maybe he could come back and back up Cutler

    Neckbeard (By cracky!) would be an upgrade at QB for the AZ Cardinals.

    Teams aren’t stupid, there are plenty of teams in the NFL that would give a 2nd round pick 2 the broncos 4 Orton. He had 1 of the top 5 passing seasons in the the league with a bad team n he made Brandon Lloyd a top reciever! After all the QB struggles teams had I’m suprised they didint ask 4 more

    Teblow is a fullback that can throw the ball. I’m disapointed that the Broncos aren’t even giving Orton a chance, he had a great season. Over 3600 yards in an offense with no running game, while making Lloyd into an NFL superstar. A second round pick could help in the trenches or in the aging seconday though.
