Good new, Chicago Bears! The Denver Broncos have cut Kyle Orton. It’s kind of a surprise, but not really when you consider that if any QB on the roster is going to get a look should something happen to Tebow (bench/injury), it would likely be Brady Quinn.
So, why pay Orton the remaining $2.5 million on his contract to just sit the bench?
So, one would think that either the Bears, Chiefs or Texans could claim him as they all have injured starting QB’s. And the Bears and Texans are doing well in the playoff race.
Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune says that the Bears will claim him. But, he’s confirming Jay Glazer’s report, even though Glazer never reported that. So, we don’t know what to make of that one.
The Bears have the 30th waiver priority, so there is a chance he doesn’t even make it to them.
