SI's Peter King Believes Kyle Orton Trade To Dolphins Could Still Happen

While the rumors around the Denver Broncos trading Kyle Orton to the Miami Dolphins have hit a brick wall with the signings of Matt Moore and Pat Devlin, there still could be a trade. Sports Illustrated's Peter King still believes that an Orton-to-Miami deal could be done. He thinks it would be a colossal mistake for Orton to not buck up on his contract demands and sign for whatever:

Five years down the road, if he doesn't end up in Miami, he'll be saying to himself, "I should have redone my contract back in 2011. I should have figured how much they wanted to go with Tebow, and how I could have started from day one in Miami.''

It has to be clear by now to Orton that he is not the answer in Denver and that Tim Tebow is the guy the team wants to be the quarterback under center this season. If that weren't true, the team wouldn't have been actively shopping him as soon as they were allowed to.

As much as Kyle Orton is not the answer in Denver, he could be in Miami. Matt Moore and Pat Devlin as well as others aren't going to help the Dolphins win games.
