King says he would have been shocked to see the Broncos shop Orton

CNN/SI’s Peter King says today in his ‘Monday Morning QB’ that he doesn’t think the Broncos were serious when they talk about how they may or may not have been shopping QB Kyle Orton before the draft:

I think it would really surprise me if the Broncos were shopping Kyle Orton before the draft. Here’s why: Josh McDaniels couldn’t have been sure he was going to get Tim Tebow, and he didn’t have enough information on Brady Quinn as a player yet. If Orton’s name came up in discussions with another team … well, maybe it did. But “shopping?” I can’t see it. On April 15, McDaniels knew two things about his quarterback situation: He didn’t know if Orton was his 2010 quarterback, but he also couldn’t have known Quinn was superior to Orton either.
