Broncos' Kyle Orton Trade Rumors Focus On Arizona Cardinals

Kevin Kolb is still a Philadelphia Eagle on the first day teams could discuss trades, and this helps the Denver Broncos in their pursuit of trading Kyle Orton. According to Kent Somers of AZCentral.com, the Cardinals have talked with both teams about their respective quarterbacks, as well as with Matt Hasselbeck and Marc Bulger.

It had been long assumed that Kolb would be traded to the Cardinals once the lockout was lifted and teams could trade, but it seems that the Cards are balking at giving up a first-round draft pick for him. As Somers mentions, the Cards are willing to trade Antonio Rodgers-Cromartie and a draft pick for quarterback.

That's where Kyle Orton enters into the discussion, as the Broncos are likely not going to ask for the same compensation the Eagles are asking for with Kolb. As Mile High Report informs, however, ESPN's Adam Schefter believes the Broncos could ask for a first-round pick.

For now, it would be safe to say that it may take a couple of days before the quarterback trade market shakes itself out.
