It was once thought that while the Denver Broncos were looking to trade Kyle Orton, if they couldn’t get a good deal they’d be happy to keep him around to backup Tim Tebow.
According to Pro Football talk, Orton is due almost $9 million in 2011, meaning he could be just a bit expensive to keep around as a backup. So, a trade may not only be an idea, but a necessity.
Enter the Cardinals.
They are looking for a new quarterback, and Orton is generally thought to be option 1-B to Kevin Kolb’s 1-A. And, depending on what the Eagles’ asking price is, Orton could find himself in the top spot.
