Obviously, I hope we get a 2nd and/or a starting DT, etc. for Orton; however, in case the market doesn't bend to our collective wishes, I'm interested in what everyone thinks is the minimum we should accept to ship Orton out of town.
For me, that answer would be a 5th or a serviceable (read: 53 man roster worthy) backup DT or OL.
I know that's a lot lower than most think we should/will get, but I think getting rid of Orton would be very close to addition by subtraction given his salary, the overwhelming Pro-Tebow public perception, and Orton's apparent disinterest in accepting any roll other than starter. If we're going to have a messy QB debate, I don't want it to be with a QB that seems (in my humble opinion) incapable of making a play on his own.
That said, I wouldn't accept less than a 5th because if nothing else I'd name Tebow the starter half way though training camp, hand Orton a clipboard, and stick him on the bench as a decent (read: more appealing than Quinn) short-term answer at backup QB.
Anyone else have any thoughts/insight?
