Where will Orton go?

New Broncos coach John Fox, at least when he was in Carolina, seemed to favor using veteran players instead of rookies.

That just seems to be his coaching philosophy (and you could see why, perhaps, with the play last season of Jimmy Clausen and the fact Fox called upon a guy who had been out of the league the week before (Brian St. Pierre) instead of starting rookie Tony Pike).

But, in Denver, with a second-year player in QB Tim Tebow – especially if the wonderkid has the support of the Broncos front office and John Elway – Fox might want to use him instead of solid veteran Kyle Orton.

Orton, you’ll recall, got off to a hot start last season (he was among the passing leaders at one point with a ridiculous number of passing yards), but he fell off a little bit and then missed the last three games because of injury and Tebow-itis.

When asked by the Denver Post about playing in Denver next season, Orton said, "Don't know, to be honest with you. Everybody can make choices. I'm happy. I've been playing as good as I ever have."

If Elway and Fox really feel like Tebow is the way they want to go, it should be noted that Orton would make pretty good trade bait.

I know  Orton a good QB. I'm sure a team like Arizona or Seattle or even Minnesota or Cleveland could use  him but if Orton didn't mind being a back up I like him back in Chicago.

I would hope that John Fox has been around the game long enough to know that Tebow will be a huge failure.

He doesn't go anywhere. He stays in Denver and Teblow gets traded. This guy has to be the most hyped player who has never done anything in the NFL. Sure he's exciting to watch, but the Broncos still went 1-2 with him under center.
