Simms, Orton both work with first-team offense

The Broncos concluded their first minicamp in the post-Jay Cutler era and so far, there is no clear favorite to be the Broncos starting quarterback. But it’s still very early. Kyle Orton and Chris Simms each had their moments over the weekend. The Denver Post reports that Simms took the first-team repetitions to start the final day of minicamp Sunday morning, but Orton led the starters when the team ran the two-minute drill to close the two-hour practice.

The key will be who can grasp Josh McDaniels‘ offense. Right now, McDaniels is pleased with the progress of the two quarterbacks.

    “They’re going to make mistakes every practice. It’s not an easy thing to get this system,” McDaniels said. “They made strides every day too. They competed with each other, and they both can run the huddle. That’s a good thing.”

The Broncos will welcome in USC QB Mark Sanchez for a workout on Tuesday.

Edited to add:’s Steve Wyche is reporting that the Broncos will be coming to Los Angeles to workout Sanchez.
