Raiders Interested In Kyle Orton? Broncos QB Might Be On Trading Block

The Oakland Raiders have a lot of interest in available quarterbacks now that Jason Campbell appears to be out for a significant period of time. One potential quarterback that Oakland could be interested in that might be available is a former rival in the conference.

Now that the Denver Broncos seem to have committed to Tim Tebow, it looks as if Kyle Orton is on the outs. Orton has played fairly competently, but has thrown too many interceptions for anyone in the organization to be terribly comfortable going forward with him.

There was a rumor that Orton might want to be traded that Mike Klis denied, but that doesn't mean the Broncos themselves wouldn't want to deal him. It might be a little strange dealing him to a conference rival, but considering they're benching a proven veteran over a project, it's not like they think highly of Orton to begin with. The Raiders would love to have someone who can handle the load, and Orton might be ready for it.
