Default PFT/Klis reporting Broncos want to trade Orton today

Report: Broncos want to trade Orton and do it fast

Posted by Michael David Smith on July 26, 2011, 7:43 AM EDT

The Broncosí front office has always maintained publicly that quarterback Kyle Orton will get a fair chance to compete for the starting job. In reality, the Broncos would love to trade Orton before training camp even starts.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that the Broncos will place Orton on the trading block, and Ortonís time remaining as a Bronco may be down to hours, not days.

So despite all the talk about competition, Tim Tebow is almost certainly going to be the starter, with Brady Quinn as his backup.

The question for Orton is whether any team will want to trade for his contract, which pays him almost $9 million this year. Unless heís ready to agree to a new deal, Orton may be a tough sell.

Dolphins reportedly calling. I'm going to the Miami game, I guess Orton add a good storyline and spares me the pain of watching Chad Henne.

I guess that would beg the question, is Brandon Marshall HIS favorite person right now?

That wont matter when we trade Orton for Marshall.

I can't wait for Orton to be gone. The guy is a terrible QB.

I'd rather go without any backup QB than have Brady Quinn in there.

Shipping Orton immediately accomplishes a few things. Hopefully we'll get something worthwhile in compensation. However ensuring that Tebow gets every possible snap with the first unit is priority #1.

There's also the money that will come off the books which in turn can be given give to Mebane.

Kaylore...I always think of this when I hear funions.

I would consider this the exhaustive list of requests in exchange for Orton...

And, if Tebow somehow goes down (oh, the horror! ), we are all comfortable with Quinn being the replacement, yes?

The Vikings would be wise to try and low ball Denver into trading him there. He's just the kind of QB that team could use to remain successful in the short term until Ponder takes over.

i agree, i've thought all along Orton's best fit is in Minny...

but if the rumors are true about all these other teams showing interest, low balling won't get it done...

Are you comfortable tying up 9 million in the back up QB position when we are a whopping 1 million under the cap?

1. The offseason just started. We do have the ability to sign new guys.

2. Orton just led a 3-10 season. Why would it matter what Quinn can do? We aren't getting better from Orton.

With the new CBA and new cap rules, just getting anything for Orton is good. Get it today is even better. We'd be trading Orton for $9 million in cap room.
