Denver Putting QB Kyle Orton on the Trading Block

The Broncos have decided that the future at QB is in the hands of second-year QB Tim Tebow, and according to the Denver Post the team will put quarterback Kyle Orton on the trading block.

With the NFL trading period opening today, Orton’s days as the Broncos’ starting QB may be down to hours. The Broncos will be entertaining offers for Orton, according to two NFL sources.

Orton has made it clear that after posting the two best seasons of his pro career, throwing 41 touchdown passes against 21 interceptions for the Broncos, he doesn’t want to serve as backup to the unproven Tim Tebow.

Teams that don’t have a proven starting quarterback and therefore need one include Minnesota, Tennessee and Arizona. Seattle, Washington, Cincinnati and Miami also could be possibilities.
