If multiple teams are offering deals, I think we get a 3rd. Maybe we get a 3rd and a 5th, or a 3rd and a player. We need to get his contract off the books and other teams know that.

He's worth a 4th...maybe another pick if there's a sucker out there.

I'm hoping Miami decides to give up a 2nd for him, but I'm thinking it will realistically be a 3rd

btw, I'm excited to have another reason to root against another team to benefit the Broncos, makes some of the other games that much more interesting

Orton's contract is what hampers any trade. This is why I think the Broncos will get no more than a 3rd round pick, or a player, but not both.

Just don't understand how Kolb is so sought after ... Eagles could get a #1 pick and more ... even though he hasn't done squat in the NFL.

Orton is at least a better than average starter and a valuable backup ...

I don't think a team is going to pony up a 1st for Kolb. But that domino has to fall before Orton finds a home.

It would seem that for QB's you can get a trade with some sort of escalator. If he wins the starting job, and plays x% of the snaps, it should escalate up to a second rounder.

We need people who are business savvy. Make a hard deal, or forget the trade and keep him as a very able backup.

9M for a backup is too rich for my blood. It smarter IMO to let him go for less than ideal return and bring in someone who can help the team on a weekly basis than it is to keep him on the bench at 9M and burn a huge portion of the cap.

This. Too much $$ for a backup, who will be pissed to be on the bench anyway.

I was looking forward to this already being over by now. Way I see it is KO to Miami we get a 4th. Thats why BRONCOS need to be the ones forcing a trade to AZ. We need to some how pry a couple of players from them by offering KO and one of our picks. Wish list would be Dockett or Williams and HB or DRC

My dream is for the Eagles to ask nothing but a first for Kolb. Teams will back off and look at the "steal" of Orton and asking price is only a 2nd rounder. I wouldnt mind a lower draft pick and a DT or a straight up stud DT trade. Freeing up that money can be going straight to the free agency market. Teams don't have a ton of time before training camp so I hope Orton gets moved today and we get started on F.A. on Wednesday morning.

I think we would be lucky to get a 4th or 5th and an empty bottle of jack, only empty because Orton drank it on his way out.

For some teams, the whole "Orton's contract is a problem" thing may be overblown.

Since owners have to spend 99% of their cap, bringing in a guy for a one-year test drive while eating up the required space, while setting yourself up for 2012 shopping spree could be a cool hand.
