Orton Named the Starting QB Heading into Training Camp

Broncos Football
For now, the Broncos have decided that former Bears thrower Kyle Orton will be the teams starting quarterback. Coach Josh McDaniels made the announcement Saturday as the team readied for Sunday’s final day of on-field prep for training camp in late July.

The former Bears quarterback took all the snaps behind the first-team offensive line during Saturday’s practice. Orton has been competing for the starting position with Chris Simms. Orton came to Denver on April 3rd as part of the trade that allowed the Bears to get ex-Broncos No. 1 quarterback Jay Cutler.

Orton completed 272 of 465 passes for 2,812 yards with Chicago last season, throwing 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
