    Broncos to Seek 2nd Round Pick for Orton

    Through 11 of his 13 starts, veteran Kyle Orton played beautifully, if mostly between the 20s. Orton, though, could not overcome the Broncos' ineffective running game and push the offense into the top 10 in scoring.
    Tebow was almost the anti-Orton in his final three games: hardly pretty between the 20s, but his running ability helped him play well in the red zone and in the fourth quarter. Tebow will be the Broncos' starting quarterback in 2011. Orton is too good to play backup, so he will likely be traded. The Broncos will ask for a second-round draft pick.
    Brady Quinn is a backup with starting experience.

    Vikings will probably jump in.

    Re: Broncos to Seek 2nd Round Pick for Orton

    I wonder if Minnesota makes a run at him. Their draft position (12th)isn't going to get them one of the top QB's, so they're going to need to get a vet. Orton isn't fantastic, but he might be better than McNabb, and might have a lower price tag than Kolb.

    He has NFC West written all over him. Niners or Cardinals?

    good thought. Both teams have decent offensive talent, and huge holes at QB. Orton would be an instant upgrade.

    Vikings are probably more willing to spend more money then the Niners or Cards.

    Re: Broncos to Seek 2nd Round Pick for Orton

    Minnesota just signed Rhett Bomar (Ex OU) quarterback to go along with TJack and Joe Webb...so signing Orton would be an upgrade...but I don't know that they would give up a 2nd round draft pick, being as they already lost their 3rd round pick for the Randy Moss...They have lots of issues to address with potential free agents in Chad Greenway, Ben Leber, Sidney Rice, Ryan Longwell, Pat Williams, Ray Edwards and only one year left on AP's contract!

    Yeah, but what makes you think the other teams wouldn't spend as well? The niners, Cards and Vikes are all in the top half of the league in payroll. They all spend, spend spend.

    I guess it all depends on who wants him more..if the Vikes can't seem to get in on him, then they will probably go the Kolb route.
