Default Palm Beach Sports: Orton's contract an issue causing delay.

http://www.palmbeachpost.com/sports/...t-1662914.html

Quote:
The Dolphins intensified their efforts to trade for Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton to be Miami's new starter in 2011, and reportedly are the clear-front runner to acquire the seventh-year pro.

But Orton's $8.8 million salary is a road block. The Dolphins are deciding if it makes sense to squeeze Orton, 28, in under the $120.375 million salary cap or to restructure his contract.
At least someone's reporters are working tonight.

Are there even any Broncos reporters out there anymore?

Nobody knows anything about the team outside of basically what Schefter is reporting.

If we get Starks for Orton, this will make me happy.

Article is basically claiming this is a salary dump if they think someone like Merling in the last year of his contract is the most likely one to be traded.

I don't know why Miami, or any team for the matter, would want Orton.

The other issue is pairing him up with Marshall, who doesn't care much for Orton's abilities. Marshall; “Wait, Coach, you mean this will get me suspended? I just thought I was mailing it in at Kyle Orton’s performance level…”. Though statisticians, Miami homers and DPost's Klis may cluck about the productivity when they played in Denver, like Orton's numbers the past few years it's a fluke caused by a crappy team throwing out of necessity.

Marshall is a baller for any QB that throws it his way and Miami is better off without Orton, who isn't any better than two of their other QBs: Thigpen (who Marshall preferred over Henne) and Brandstater (who looked better than Orton in Denver).

That is why you are posting on an internet message board and not involved in the frenzy of FA activity happening this week for an NFL team.

Or coaching a college team.

Or involved in the CFL.

Or high school.

Or pee wee.

You're just trollin' trollin' trollin', like the ****tard you were born as.

Are you suggesting Orton is a better QB than Brandstater, Quinn or Simms? I never thought so.

Simms? **** no, Orton isn't better than Chris mother****ing Simms.

Did you not see the 'Skins game in 2009? Simms had that thing won if Orton hadn't ****ed up the first half so bad.

We should compare ignore lists. That's the second time today that I've had the exact same thought.

You finally got your wish of more football talk here at the Mane and you come up with "...Brandstater (who looked better than Orton in Denver)."

**** that is a dumb statement. I liked Tom but he played in preseason games!

Because he's actually the best QB that is/was on the market?

Orton > Kolb
Orton > McNabb
Orton > Jackson
Orton > Hasselbeck
Orton > Bulger
Orton > Leinart
Orton > Gradkowski
Orton=Palmer (But he's technically not on the market)

Could it be this thread he started? I thought he was pretty full of himself being a newbie and all.
