Report: Cardinals and Broncos Have Engaged In Talks for Kyle Orton


According to Kent Somers of AZCentral.com, the Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos have had trade discussions regarding veteran quarterback Kyle Orton. Arizona head coach Ken Whisenhunt declined to name any players the team was pursuing specifically, but noted to Somers that any trade is unlikely to happen today as the process is too complicated.

It's been reported most of the offseason that the Cardinals' top priority at quarterback is Philadelphia's Kevin Kolb, but their asking price may be too high. Arizona reportedly is willing to part with cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in exchange for Kolb, as well as a mid-round draft pick. 

Adam Schefter also just reported on NFL Live that the Broncos are seeking a first or second round pick in exchange for Kyle Orton. This makes sense, because he is probably the best quarterback on the open market. The Cardinals feel like Orton will cost significantly less than Kolb, and while that may be true in terms of what the Eagles are expecting, the Broncos are not giving up Orton for a 3rd round pick as has been speculated. As I have said all along, it's going to take second round value to get Orton out of Denver, so Arizona and Miami better start getting creative.
