Default Trade Orton to the Raiders?

So now with Campbell out for the season, Broncos ship Orton to the Raiders?

They have nothing to trade, do they?

After they traded for Curry, wasn't it reported that they don't have many draft picks this year? Unless we take a player or future pick.

Pick in 2013 could work.

Why not. They'd get someone who knows our O and offensive weakness's by heart and would love nothing more than to beat us every year. Not that it matters at this point.

Well Al Davis is dead now, so it's not completely unimaginable. But it still seems really far-fetched to me.

Then again, are there really any better options for them? I mean they are looking like a team that could make a run for the division right now, so they need to go for the best option available. Hmm...

Orton in a Raiders uniform does sound perfect to me I've got to be honest. My all-time most hated Bronco going to my all-time most hated team. Perfect.

The raiders seemingly like big arm QB's who can throw the ball down the field, so that would not fit Orton.

Orton to Raiders would be awesome but no team is dumb enough to give anything of value for orton, even the raiders.

I have absolutely zero fear of Orton beating us. If the Raiders beat us with him on the roster it'd be in spite of him not because of him.

Beggars can't be choosers though. What options do they have that are better right now?

Be careful what you wish for. Orton will probably come back and bite us in the ass. Just like he always does.

A QB who does not know their system and is not exactly playing great is going to help them now?

I would be surprised if the raiders had any interest in Orton other than giving up a 7th round pick so he can hold a clipboard and hope to get a decent compensation pick for him as they let him go next offseason.

Raiders put a premium on best of the NFL athletic players, at the cost of skills. I can't think of another team that Kyle fits least then Oakland.

Again, we are talking about a team that is hoping to make a playoff run. Do you think for a second they are going to roll with Boler or Pryor in that situation? At least Orton has proven he can play at or just below a league average level as a starter. Those two? Not so much...

Okay, now that's an option they might prefer. And he wouldn't come with a retarded 1 year contract from hell...
