Default Orton wont report to Chiefs if claimed?

hes been wrong lately, alot actually, but here is what Clayton has to say on the subject:

Quote:
ESPN's John Clayton suggested on SportsCenter that Kyle Orton might not report to the #Chiefs if they claim him off waivers today.
Clayton: "What Orton's trying to do is get word to KC to stay off...maybe sit out the rest of the season & not play & not report to Chiefs."

Perhaps not true but it is believable. Orton actually has some leverage here. Nobody wants a player who doesn't want to be there, particularly a QB who they have to pay quite a bit of money.

As a ploy to dissuade them, it makes sense

CHI has a decent playoff chance - KC, not so much

Isn't his wife from Chicago? They have a new baby. I am sure that Chicago is the only destination they will consider.

Maybe this is a 'one hand washes the other' kinda deal.

Orton asks for and is given his release, and in return, promises KC is not on his radar?

No, but I'd LOVE a chance to beat the guy that supplanted me, and considering I only have one more month before i'm a FA, I'd report to KC if they picked me. Not to mention, Fox and Friends just spent a whole day talking about how Orton is a pro's pro, not a whiny little girl. If he doesn't report, he officially becomes a whiny little girl.

Unfortunately this also reduces the pressure on Chicago to pick him off waivers and thus for us to receive ANY compensation.

No, no, he's saying if the Bears passed they could sign him and be off the 2.5 mill hook because only SF and GB are below them on the priority wire. So I was saying if the Bears pass GB could cockblock them from signing him.

Assuming Orton has let Chicago know that they are his preferred destination, I don't really get why Chicago would even bother to put a claim in. They have one of the worst waiver positions, so they are really only protecting themselves from GB and SF getting him if they put in a claim. They will probably be able to sign him for much less if he is a FA, since Orton can then double dip.

Worth the risk on our part, IMO, since he wasn't going to do squat for us, and he isn't going to beat us as part of KC or Chi, but my guess is that he clears waivers or someone else besides the bears gets him.

If he really wants to screw the Broncos, he could tell everyone that he will sit out this year but behind doors, Bears sign him after he clears. BUUUUUT, if this isn't the case, anyone can sign him if the Bears don't claim him off waivers. Let us hope a team plays it safe and picks him off the waiver wire and that $2.5 million will be going towards a free agent next season.

Yup, just like his whiny act was. And Eli Manning's was. You get the point. Though i don't recall anyone saying Elway or Manning were consummate professionals, do you? They were snotty college kids who were far from professionals. I guess Orton would be too.

That's great. Orton going to KC would be a terrible thing...no sense in strengthening a division opponent while locked in a playoff race.

I think that the Bronco Brass may have overlooked the KC possibility when they decided to cut the string; I'm sure they were only thinking Orton would end up in Chicago.

Has anyone seen this ESPN article and is it reliable?

http://espn.go.com/chicago/nfl/story...-qb-kyle-orton

It's basically saying Chicago is going to go after Orton.

Wait... So KC could block Chicago from signing him AND not have to pay his $2.5M?

Does anyone think he just F'd himself by announcing this? The only thing KC would have to consider would be the negative publicity but they could easily explain that away with "We think they were just trying to do a backroom deal and his refusal to play for us has nothing to do with us as a franchise".
