Bronocs want 2nd-rounder for Orton?

Kyle Orton had a pretty good year, all things considered. Sure he got replaced (against his will) by Tim Tebow late in the season, but early on he was pacing Dan Marino's single-season passing record and he ended up as a top-10 quarterback in terms of passing yards on the season.

But there's a little bit of a revolution going on in Denver, and it seems like Tebow's the guy of the future, if not for football reasons, then certainly because it's good for business.

Mike Klis of The Denver Post agrees and believes the team will try to trade Orton, and they'll look for a second-round draft pick in return.

The question then becomes: is Kyle Orton better than Jake Locker? Or maybe: is Kyle Orton better than Jimmy Clausen?

Okay, that's unfair to Locker, but remember that Clausen was nabbed by the Panthers in the second round of last year's draft -- if they'd been able to trade that pick for Kyle Orton, 2010 would have panned out quite differently.

All of that is to say, with an abundance of teams seeking a quarterback to perhaps put them over the top, Orton could present a pretty valuable commodity.

Which is beyond fascinating, considering that just a few weeks ago, the most likely path for Denver to take was propping up Tebow's trade value and dealing him off.

I just hope that we pick Jake Locker while we have the chance to get a real franchise quarterback while the Tim Tebow experiment runs its course.

Keep hoping.... Do you think Carolina will let him go with Clausen as their QB!!!!

Wow, we could have a reverse of the old Chicago QB situation with Orton being backed up by Grossman in Washington.  You know Snyder wants him, you know it.  And Shanahan wants to stick it to the Broncos by proving you can win with Orton, with the right coach.  You know its going to happen, its just a question of when.

Nobody is trading a second-round pick for Kyle Orton.  Everyone in the media is a bunch of morons.  Orton put up stats when teams had games in the bag.  Any GM who would give a #2 for Orton should be canned immediately.  Chicago dealt him because he's not the answer at QB; now Denver will deal him because he's not the answer at QB.  He's serviceable; he's not a potential superstar.  I doubt highly he would merit more than a #3 choice.

Tebow is going to make us average for the next 3 to 4 years.  Mcdanny really did a job on us.  I just hope that we pick Jake Locker while we have the chance to get a real franchise quarterback while the Tim Tebow experiment runs its course.

I just can't help myself:
What is a Bronoc?
As for the actual post, I'd have to agree that Orton could probably bring back a 2nd rounder, or a 3rd if a 5th or 6th was thrown into the deal too.
