Could Minnesota Be in the Hunt for Broncos QB Orton?

The Vikings may be one of the teams interested in trading for quarterback Kyle Orton of the Denver Broncos if John Elway and the front office choose to trade Orton once the lockout ends.

The Vikings did spend a first-round pick on quarterback Christian Ponder, but it is still assumed that they will attempt to go after a veteran quarterback as insurance if Ponder isn’t ready to start in the NFL right away.

Orton should be familiar to Minnesota fans, having previously played for the Vikings division rival while he was with Chicago and he also spent a fair amount of time in the Upper Midwest while he was a collegiate quarterback for the Purdue Boilermakers. Speculation is that Denver could be asking as much as a second-round draft pick as compensation for Orton.
