DOVE VALLEY — It isn’t always easy to get Kyle Orton to crack a smile during an interview, especially a crowded one, like was the case after the first practice of the Broncos’ three-day passing camp on Monday morning.

That is until the topic of rookie hazing came up.

No, Orton wasn’t making proclamations of taping Tim Tebow the flag pole or making Tebow chug a gallon of milk (though, I bet if anyone could do it, it would be Tebow), but just the thought of having a first-round draft pick hauling around Orton’s gear all summer did make Orton smile.

“Oh, that hasn’t started yet, but it most certainly will,” Orton said. “The higher you get picked, the more hazing there is.”

Orton said his initial meeting with Tebow today was pretty basic. Quick introductions, and that was it. Tebow also introduced himself to the full squad during the group meeting.

But perhaps the biggest thing Tebow did to start winning over his new teammates, especially Orton, Brady Quinn and Tom Brandstater, was to offer to fetch the playbooks and carry the helmets.

“He knows the deal,” Orton said.

Helmets and playbooks?

If he really wants to get on their good side, he better start fetching the Jack Daniels handles for Orton.
