Orton Named Starter In Denver

June 21, 2010 Updated Jun 13, 2009 at 11:10 PM EDT

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Kyle Orton will be the Denver Broncos'
starting quarterback.
Coach Josh McDaniels made the announcement Saturday as the team
readied for Sunday's final day of on-field prep for training camp
in late July. The former Chicago Bears quarterback took all the
snaps behind the first-team offensive line during Saturday's
practice.
Orton has been competing for the starting position with Chris
Simms.
Orton came to Denver on April 3 as part of the trade that
allowed the Bears to get ex-Broncos No. 1 quarterback Jay Cutler.
Orton completed 272 of 465 passes for 2,812 yards with Chicago
last season, throwing 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
