ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Kyle Orton's designs on a long-term contract from the Denver Broncos took a hit with the offseason acquisitions of Brady Quinn and Tim Tebow.
While Orton may not represent the future of the franchise, he certainly is the present.
That was clear at the Broncos' passing camp this week when all four quarterbacks, including second-year pro Tom Brandstater, took he field at Dove Valley together for the first time.
Orton went first on all the drills and had the firmer grasp of the system, having been here for 13 months and started 15 games last season.
