It was reported today by ESPN‘s Adam Schefter that a trade involving Kyle Orton will not take place and that Orton will be the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos in 2011.
Schefter said today via Twitter:
“The Denver Broncos are not going to trade Kyle Orton. That’s not going to happen.”
He also said:
“They’re not going to trade Kyle Orton this season. Kyle Orton is going to be the Broncos’ starting quarterback.”
It was reported last week that the Broncos were ready and willing to trade Orton to the Miami Dolphins, but the deal fell apart. Orton has taken first-team snaps all during training camp and has had the best performance of the team’s quarterbacks so far in the practice sessions.
Is this report by Schefter a statement of fact, or is it a clever smokescreen by the Broncos to boost Orton’s trade value? Only time will tell.
