Orton Named Broncos Starting Quarterback

By  | 

Denver Broncos coach Josh McDaniels has named Kyle Orton the team's starting quarterback.

McDaniels made the announcement Saturday as the team prepared for Sunday's final day of on-field preparation prior to the start of training camp the last week of July. The former Chicago Bears quarterback took all the snaps behind the first-team offensive line during Saturday's practice.

Orton has been competing for the starting position with Chris Simms.

Orton came to Denver on April 3 as part of the trade that allowed the Bears to net ex-Broncos No. 1 quarterback Jay Cutler.

Orton completed 272 of 465 passes for 2,812 yards with Chicago last season, throwing 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
