Wow. Didn't expect Orton to get waived.

If I'm the Bears I'm calling him

LOL. Why didn't those idiots just trade him at the beginning of the season? Why waive him now of all times?.../facepalm

Hmm. Hadn't thought about the Texans...except Leinart's about to BLOW UP there!

With the money he's owed the rest of the year ($3.2 million I believe) unless a team wants him long term I'm guessing the only teams truly interested will be those needing him for a playoff push this year

Extremely poor FO move. Could have gotten a 4th at the minumum for him. Thats pretty damn poor by the Broncos

If they kept Brady Quinn over him I doubt they would have gotten a 6th rounder. What did we get for McNabb? A 5th rounder.

Re: Around the NFL Week 11

Clayton is speculating, and he's just speculating, the Chief could be an option. That'd be a bit of a stunner

Re: Around the NFL Week 11

Skins should pick him up. He would likely beat out Grossman (He's done it before) and Beck next year and be our bridge QB in 2012 while the Shanny's coach up the rookie QB they draft...

Re: Around the NFL Week 11

Can't believe you trash Orton for a guy that passes 2 for 8 attempts for a game. Seriously??

Re: Around the NFL Week 11

We should at least consider Orton. I'm not sure of his contract situation. He may only be signed thru the end of the year. He is better than Beck and Grossman. Of course, if he's just under contract this year, not worth the hassle.

Re: Around the NFL Week 11

Wow, if Shanahan picked up Orton, that would be a total zero confidence in Beck and Grossman. And it would be like he himself admitting that he blew it with 2 QB's.

Nope, its gonna be a QB rich draft. I dont see the Redskins putting in a claim on Orton.

Heck they are already paying the remaining seasons salary on Choice, who they cut after only 6 touches.

Bears claimed him and I agree Shanny has to much pride for that

I would assume it's because the trade deadline was back in week 6. Either way I agree, I'd kick the tires on Orton at least for the rest of the season. Can't hurt.
