I have take a great deal of this post from a fan shot posted by, topnation, but from day one I mentioned that we in Denver had over estimated KO's trade value. Add to that a huge contract under a new CBA and we may be unable to trade Orton.
According to thephinsider.com, Kendal Langford has been added to the Orton to the Dolphins deal. I wonder what the draft pick will be? 4th I suspect.
See: "The asking price has also changed. Originally, it was thought that the Broncos were looking for a third round draft choice, possibly with the ability for that pick to become a second rounder depending on Orton's play. However, during the day, it was rumored that the Broncos were coveting Dolphins' defensive linemen Kendall Langford or Randy Starks. It's believed that Langford is the preferred option, as the Broncos look to shed salary.
Meanwhile, Miami was also worrying about salary. Specifically, Orton's. Kyle's scheduled to earn $8.8 million in 2011. If the Dolphins take on that salary, they hamper themselves in the free agent market, eating a large chunk of their available space under the $120 million salary cap. But, if the Dolphins rework the quarterback's contract to lower his salary, they will be adding multiple years to the deal. The question becomes, do they want to do that, and for how many years."
Two reasons the trade is not done one Broncos asking too much when another team is really doing them a huge favor taking KO's 8.8 million and second to take him they want Ko to say gee I'll be happy with say half of what's owed me. those are big obstacles.
