Englewood, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos quarterback that finished the preseason with the best passer rating wasn't starter Kyle Orton.
It wasn't Brady Quinn or Tim Tebow.
Instead, it's undrafted free agent Adam Weber, who had a 118.8 QB after completing his one and only pass of the preseason. It was an 89-yarder to Eron Riley in the waning seconds of Denver's 26-7 loss at Arizona on Thursday night.
The Broncos like Weber but didn't give him much exposure during the exhibitions. Not only did they need to get a long look at Quinn and Tebow but they wanted to try to slip Weber through on waivers this weekend so they could sign him to their practice squad.
Quinn didn't do much to distinguish himself Thursday night, but Tebow wasn't much better.
