Kyle Orton says he thinks Brady Quinn's acquisition will make the Denver Broncos stronger and deeper.
He certainly doesn't plan on admiring him from the sideline.
In his first public comments since the March 14 trade that brought Quinn over from Cleveland, Orton said Tuesday he appreciated coach that Josh McDaniels came out and said he's still his starter.
Orton says he is focused on improving in his second season in the system and not on any competition for his job.
He also says he's participating in the Broncos' offseason program not because Quinn is here but because he felt that as the team's leader, he needed to take part even though he's a restricted free agent who hasn't signed his $2.261 million tender.
