Orton named Broncos starting QB

John Leyba/Denver PostJosh McDaniels came to a decision, putting Kyle Orton atop the team's depth chart at quarterback

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.
