According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Kyle Orton is way ahead of Tim Tebow in the quarterback race.
“Kyle Orton not only remains the Broncos’ starting quarterback, the first training camp workout of the 2011 season today showed thatTim Tebowis a long way from giving the incumbent much competition.
Orton was his usual polished self, always knowing which of the receivers was open, and hitting them with precision. The Orton-Brandon Lloyd connections down the field picked up where they left off in 2010.
Tebow got just as many reps, but was a tick slower in reading how the play developed and his passes weren’t nearly as precise.” – Mike Klis (Denver Post)
While that may disappoint many Broncos fans, it was only the first full-team practice. There’s a lot of camp left, and hey, maybe this publicity is good for Orton’s trade value.
