Market forming for Broncos’ Orton

The Broncos are willing to deal starting QB Kyle Orton, league and team sources said, and are spending Tuesday assessing that market.

The Vikings, Cardinals and Dolphins are among the teams expected to engage in trade talks with the Broncos.

The Broncos value Orton and are unlikely to deal him for less than a third-round draft pick, sources say, with the possibility that the compensation will escalate based on the QB’s performance and/or his new team signing him to an extended contract.

Orton is in the final year of his deal and put up solid numbers in Denver after being a part of the 2009 Jay Cutler trade with the Bears.
