The Associated Press is reporting that there are rumors floating around Dove Valley this week that Kyle Orton may soon be traded. Orton has been the Broncos' starting quarterback for the past two season and has posted career-best numbers in terms of passing yards and touchdowns.
However, the team's 4-12 record last season has left room for doubt. Back up quarterback Tim Tebow made headlines this summer with his off-season workouts despite the NFL lockout.
Here is was AP sports writer Pat Graham posted wrote this morning:
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Eager to get back to work, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow has arrived early at team headquarters.
With the lockout lifted, Tebow was one of the first players to report for voluntary workouts Tuesday, driving through the gates at 7:40 a.m. This soon could be Tebow's team, especially with rumors swirling that Kyle Orton's days in Denver are numbered.
Orton has started the last two seasons for Denver, posting career-best numbers. But with the Broncos looking for a fresh start following a dismal 4-12 season, Orton may be on the trading block, paving the way for Tebow to be the starter for new coach John Fox.
