Orton stays ... for now

Written by Cory Whitmer

Day Two of training camp and Tim Tebow was behind center, of the second team. Kyle Orton, the subject of "for sure" trade rumors to Miami, was taking the snaps with the first team.

The trade did not happen as speculated. The "done deal" went cold.

Local talk says that there is no trade and it is being sold as "over".

The Miami Herald says otherwise. The trade has just stalled according to the Miami news and is still an option. The hang-up is supposedly the structure Orton and his team require contractually.

Miami and Orton's team may still try to work out a deal that is mutually beneficial for all. Kyle has been a "company" man his whole career and now wants to be the one calling his own shots. He has made that clear by stating he "will not be anyone's back up," when asked about the possibility of being #2 to Tim Tebow.

There is still a chance that Kyle Orton could be the second big name in Colorado to be traded after the Colorado Rockies traded their ace pitcher, Ubaldo Jimenez to the Cleveland Indians on Saturday evening.

Orton will be on a shorter leash if the season does not begin well and could easily be pulled to thrust Tebow into the starting spot. The fan base is restless of Orton, supporter or not and will want to see something new and not the same 'ol neck beard show of short passes, check downs and statue pocket presence.
