Kyle Orton was waived by the Denver Broncos today in what is one of the more surprising moves so far this season. There are many teams in need of a starting quarterback with a cannon like Orton, and the Chicago Bears—Orton's ex-team—is certainly going to have a decision to make.
Who else should take a shot at one of the more enigmatic quarterbacks in the NFL?
Orton began the season as the Broncos starting quarterback, but as it became evident that he could not lead the team to victory, the pressure to give fan favorite and media darling Tim Tebow a shot grew unbearable.
Tebow got his shot, and he has taken the opportunity and ran with it.
3-1 as a starter, the kid from the University of Florida with the funky wind-up is taking all NFL conventional wisdom and turning it on its head. People say he can't lead a pro offense. People say he doesn't throw right.
Who cares? He wins, and that is all that matters in the National Football League.
With Tebow thriving, Orton became expendable. Now the question becomes, where will Orton land?
Let's take a look at five potential landing spots for the ex-Broncos quarterback.
