And in a move that really surprises no one, Kyle Orton has walked up to the Broncos front office, asking for a trade before Tuesday’s deadline. If Denver decides to comply, that will add Orton to an already growing block including Eddie Royal and Brandon Lloyd, it’s clear that the 3 biggest playmakers on the Broncos offense are fed up with the situation in Denver and regardless of whether or not they believe it can be turned around is not up for discussion. I don’t expect the Broncos to pull the trigger on a decision before Tuesday, but if they do, they need to make it as soon as possible before Cincinnati wises up and decides to trade Palmer.
Orton has proved himself to be a decent QB when he’s got a running game to work with, he doesn’t have that in Denver. Send him out the door, get a few picks and wash your hands of the whole situation.
