Orton named Broncos starting QB
Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels just named Kyle Orton his starting quarterback. Orton had been competing with Chris Simms for the job throughout the season.
Orton, who was acquired from the Chicago Bears in April as part of the Jay Cutler trade, was named the starter with two days remaining in the Broncos’ off-season minicamp training program.
He will start regular training camp in July as the Broncos’ No. 1 quarterback.
When Flacco drops back to pass, he earns respect without uttering a word, by displaying a gift that’s rare, even at the NFL level.
