Brady Quinn Looking To Compete For Broncos Starting QB Job

Tim Tebow or Kyle Orton? That's the question that continues to hound the Denver Broncos as we await an end to the NFL lockout and the start of a training camp--whenever any of that may be. And sure, we can listen to John Elway and John Fox say that Brady Quinn will get a chance to compete for the starting job under center, but he's mostly an after-thought in most cases.

But Brady Quinn doesn't believe Brady Quinn should be ignored in this case. As he told the Denver Post recently:

"I want to be No. 1," Quinn said. "I feel they (Orton and Tebow) both had a chance last year and I didn't get an opportunity. I'd love to get an opportunity to help us win games and get this team to the playoffs and see what happens from there."

Quinn was in a bad situation on Cleveland, so let's give him the benefit of the doubt and believe that he can actually compete with Orton and Tebow. But he hasn't played in a regular season game since 2009. That season he completed 53 percent of his passes and threw eight touchdowns to seven interceptions. He was sacked 19 times. He certainly seemed like a change of scenery guy when the trade was made, but will he need to move elsewhere to finally get that opportunity?
