Broncos would trade Orton for 2nd-round pick
Kyle Orton needs a team with a good defense and a strong running game and Denver does not have that right now.
Broncos reportedly would deal QB Orton for 2nd-round pick
The Denver Broncos will ask for a second-round draft choice from any team that wants to acquire quarterback Kyle Orton, The Denver Post reported Tuesday. The Broncos went 3-10 in games Orton, 28, started in spite of him posting some big numbers when healthy. Orton completed 293 of 498 passes (58.8 percent) for 3,653 yards and 20 touchdowns. He threw nine interceptions. Orton's passer rating of 87.5 was 15th in the league. The Broncos are intent on moving forward with Tim Tebow, who accounted for 11 touchdowns -- six rushing -- while passing for 654 yards and running for 227 more in three games. Denver also has veteran Brady Quinn on the roster.
