Kyle Orton Trade Speculation Continues; Dolphins, Titans Reportedly Strong Possibilities

With quarterback Kevin Kolb still a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, the Denver Broncos will keep hold of Kyle Orton for the time being and explore the trade market for him. The Arizona Cardinals appear to be the team most intent on trading for a quarterback, but so far they are unwilling to pay the price for Kolb, making Orton a possible acquisition fort them.

There are at least six other teams who could be interested in acquiring Orton. On Tuesday night, Yahoo! Sports' Jason Cole reported that the Miami Dolphins and the Tennessee Titans are the "strongest possibilities" to acquire Orton. But he also points out that either team could look at unrestricted free agent Matt Hasselbeck instead.

Miami seems like the better destination since there is no quarterback of the future there to challenge Orton, whereas Tennessee has Jake Locker waiting in the wings. The Broncos are no stranger as a trade partner with the Dolphins, as wide receiver Brandon Marshall went to Miami in 2010. Orton would be able to reconnect with his former receiver.

Right now, the quarterback trade market is certainly a fluid situation.
