Orton Remains One of the NFL’s Lowest Paid QB’s

The Denver Post reports about the salary of starter Kyle Orton, and how he remains one of the lowest paid starting QB’s in the NFL:

Kyle Orton was hoping to get his a multiyear contract this offseason. Instead, he got Brady Quinn and Tim Tebow added to the Broncos roster. Classified as a restricted, rather than an unrestricted, free agent because of a labor dispute between team owners and the NFL Players Association, Orton settled for a one-year, $2.621 million salary that makes him one of the league’s lowest-paid starting quarterbacks. “We shot it around, and that’s fine,” Orton said of his own contract talks that went nowhere this offseason. “I’d love to have security. I’d love to have a deal. But I also know where we’re at and I know I’m in camp right now. My side of talking about it is over with. My agent knows what I want. If we can get close, great. If not, I’m fine playing with what I’m making right now.”
