A day after trading for quarterback Brady Quinn from Cleveland, the Broncos on Monday cut backup QB Chris Simms.

Simms, who played in parts of two games last season, was set to make $2.54 million next season.

In Week 11, Simms started against the Chargers in Denver. But he was benched after only three series in favor of an injured Kyle Orton. It was just Simms' second start since 2006.

The Broncos now have three quarterbacks on their roster: Orton, Quinn and second-year pro Tom Brandstater.

Orton, who's in Hawaii attending the NFL union meetings, said on Sunday after the Quinn trade: "We've made a lot great moves this offseason and this is another one. (Quinn) is a great player and I'll be happy to work with him."

The other moves Orton referred to were mostly about the Broncos revamping their defensive line with the signings of Jamal Williams, Justin Bannan and Jarvis Green.

Orton said he had to talked to Broncos coach Josh McDaniels before the trade for Quinn was executed.

"I will keep that private but I do have total confidence that I'm the guy there," Orton said. "Just like every year I'm going in to try and earn my starting job. I don't think I have anything to fret."

Technically...younger Shanny has a tat on his ankle of all places (now thats gay) of Chris Simms' name...least I hope its his name...

LOL...in todays DPO

In fact, the Broncos coach seemed to go out of his way at the combine a couple of weeks ago to talk up last year's backup, who has been written off, again, by pretty much everyone except his father.

"The time and effort that he's putting in now, I don't know if any of our players are matching that," McDaniels said of Simms.

"That says a lot to me and our staff about what he's about, about what he's trying to do. He wants to get better, we want to help him get better in every way that we can. We wouldn't have Chris there if we didn't feel good about him having an opportunity to play and win games with us."

You had to be blind to not see that coming. This is better for both parties as Simms would have wasted his time here in camp. This way he can try and play backup somewhere else or try and play in the other football league with four teams.

Despite all the prattlings from the Peanut Gallery, it really is too bad for Simms. He really is a nice fellow, and did have some skills and won some games early. The junk posters (junk mail and spam) can kiss his arse, and remember: He's got a hella lot more money than you do playing the game he loved. Not many of the junk posters around here can say that.........

So, long, Chris. Sorry it just didn't work out for you.....

He should be receiving a call from the Faiders soon. If nothing else to interrogate him on any information they can get. Then say ah hell since you're here, we'll sign you to our list of Qb's, we have turnover like you wouldnt believe here. Sometimes we play 3 Qb's a game just to see who sucks less... :)

Is Orton suffering from a concussion or is he a coach?

I really hoped McD's called Simms to tell him he was going to get cut before the trade went through with Quinn.

It was very nice of McDaniels to cut him now as a favor so he can latch onto another team in time for the next UFL season.

Just want to get this straight. We are not allowed to talk bad against anyone who makes more money than we do? We'll that certainly closes the door to a lot of conversation around this place.

with that..if history tells us anything he will sign with another team, and for some reason, maybe injury to the starting qb, come in and absolutely shred us..

I have love for his effort, but it was the results that ruined him for me. I couldn't believe what a downgrade it was going from Orton to Simms last year vs Washington.
