Please go get him Rick Smith! Kyle Orton is way better than any of the FAs that worked out this week.
Yes please. I'll take him over anyone else off the scrap heap. Orton is a quality passer.
Would be a great backup to Matt 2.
His salary would likely keep us from picking him up. The Bears can pick him up though, and I'm sure they will be happy to have him back.
Stupid. Man, what do the Broncos have to gain by flat out releasing him? Should've kept him to trade next year.
With the money owed on his contract, it will be interesting to see if any team claims him outright or rolls the dice that they can get him off the FA pile once he clears waivers.
I'm uncertain who owns the tiebreaker between the Texans and Bears for waiver wire priority.
I think he'll clear waivers then go to the Bears, but I would love him on Houston. We have a ton of weapons for him.
Would you want to go to a team that traded you to Denver for another QB? I would rather go somewhere else and let them rot.
**** signing Orton.
Never been in this offense. Super inconsistent. Hell ****in' nah.
Damn, I forgot about KC. With Tyler Palko's badtastic performance last night, I could see the Chiefs claiming Orton to be their starting quarterback.
He isn't under contract next year. Tebow is the only QB they have who will still be under contract, which is why they have to give him an honest look.
Why do some of you guys think that every player waiver is better than what we have and we just need to go sign him??
Orton sucks. Yates is much better that Orton.
Good point. Lets go sign the super consistent amazing QB off the waiver wire to be our #3. Those are a dime a dozen right?
The Texans brought in 5 QB's for workouts. Obviously they agree with us.
Orton has about 2-3 million left in salary this year, so they can save that money by letting another team claim him. There are enough QB needy teams to pick him up, but I think his remaining salary would put the Texans over the cap.
I think Alan Burge found a link that the Texans were 1.9 million under the cap.
Think I heard Orton salary is 2.2 million.(not sure if that would be this years cap hit or over life of his contract)
But I could be wrong
Yes PLZZZ pick him up quick before Chicago or KC does ......
wait didnt he used to play in CHI yeah they would want him
