Kyle Orton's Potential Suitors May Include Miami Dolphins

If the Denver Broncos do trade quarterback Kyle Orton, where might he wind up? Much of this depends on whether the Arizona Cardinals trade for the Philadelphia Eagles' Kevin Kolb. If the Cards balk at the cost for Kolb, they could tell the Eagles that they'll go talk with Denver about acquiring Kyle Orton. That could be a ploy to lower the cost or it could be a serious move.

If the Cards do wind up with Kolb where are the other destinations for Orton? Mike Klis of the Denver Post has a list of teams. Let's break them down:

Vikings: Minnesota drafted Florida State QB Christian Ponder with the No. 12 overall pick. Brett Favre is retired and Tarvaris Jackson is a free agent. But Orton would be in the same situation he finds himself in Denver.

Titans: Tennessee drafted Washington QB Jake Locker at No. 8 overall and Kerry Collins retired. Vince Young is soon to be gone. Again, Orton would need to deal with a youngster destined to take over the QB spot.

Dolphins: Miami makes sense with Chad Henne not the answer and Chad Pennington likely retiring. Orton would be reunited with wide receiver Brandon Marshall.

Redskins: Washington head coach Mike Shanahan seems intent on trading or releasing Donovan McNabb and going with John Beck at quarterback. Would Shanahan trade with his old team?

Seahawks: Seattle no longer has Matt Hasselbeck and Charlie Whitehurst is slated to be the starter as of now.

Bengals: Cincinnati has disgruntled Carson Palmer on the roster and could trade him. They drafted Andy Dalton in the second round, so, again, similar situation in Denver.
