The Denver Broncos have plenty of talent in the quarterback department and there are teams that would be happy to take veteran Kyle Orton(notes) off their hands. But NFL.com notes that it won't be easy, particularly since some folks with the team see him as the Broncos' starting QB whenever next season gets underway.
"If the right call comes in and the offer is strong, it will be considered," sources tell NFL.com, but "the idea that a third- or fourth-round pick might get it done is woefully misguided." The site claims "a high second-round pick that converts to a first-rounder based on production" might get it done.
The 28-year-old Orton, who is in the last year of his contract, has thrown 71 touchdowns and 49 interceptions since entering the league with the Chicago Bears in 2005. Last season, he threw for 281 yards on average per game and finished the season with 3,653 along with 20 touchdown passes.
