Orton has apparently locked up the starting job, according to Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network (h/t Rotoworld), yet the on-field drama continues.
Tebow, who started three games last year with a 1-2 record, has been upset at the lack of support from his coaching staff and front office.
He even vented his frustrations regarding losing the starting quarterback role to The Denver Post's Woody Paige.
Via the Denver Post:
"My dream, since I was a young boy, of being a starting quarterback in the NFL seemed to be coming true," Tebow told me as we stood outside the Broncos' locker room.
"Then, I felt like it was grabbed back away..."
After Tebow's phenomenal run as the starting quarterback for the National Champion University of Florida Gators, he became a very well-known and admired figure in the sports world. His devotion to Christianity has been scrutinized and has ultimately been one of the main reasons for his popularity.
Unfortunately, people mix their feelings about him being a devout Christian with him being an NFL quarterback, even though the two have little to do with each other. In fact, I would argue that it has helped Tebow overcome the highs and lows that most quarterbacks face on their rise to stardom.
Tebow is only 23 years old and he has a lot of time to grow into a great quarterback.
For right now, though, Kyle Orton and his cannon arm have the starting job in Denver.
