ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Kyle Orton's departure now includes a return trip to Denver.
A day after the Broncos waived their former starter, the Kansas City Chiefs picked him up, along with the roughly $2.6 million left on his contract that expires after this season.
Orton and his new team will travel to Denver for the season finale on Jan. 1.
Tim Tebow supplanted Orton after a 1-4 start and has gone 4-1 to help the Broncos climb back into the AFC West race, a game behind Oakland.
