Kyle Orton Expects to Stay in Denver

Seems like the Dolphin's hunt for a new QB may have hit a snag. The Denver Broncos are keen to keep Kyle Orton and released quotes to the media today from Orton in which he claims he expects to be the team's starting quarterback next year.

Reports ESPN:

"There's a lot of stuff that goes on business-wise, and I really don't take any hard feelings or anything like that," Orton said in quotes released by the Broncos. " I'm excited to be here. I had a lot of fun out there with my teammates today. I'm excited to have a great year.

He said his current expectation is to be the Broncos' starter.

"I expect to be here," Orton said. "I expect to be the starter here and go out there and play the best football of my career."

That doesn't mean that Orton coming to Miami is officially off the table. Far from it. It just means that a deal certainly doesn't seem to be anywhere near made. Previous reports expected a deal to be announced as soon as yesterday, but things don't seem to be moving so smoothly.

In the meantime, look, Vince Young is officially available.
