Orton tries to stay out of fray
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- New Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton isn't going to make this a long-distance dissing match between him and Pro Bowl passer Jay Cutler in Chicago.
Orton, who swapped places with Cutler in the biggest trade of the NFL this spring, declined to join the fray Thursday when asked about Cutler's comments that Chicago was a better football town.
Orton said both cities were great.
A day earlier, Cutler told ESPN Radio in Chicago that there's a big difference between the Mile High City and the Windy City.
He said that "Denver's on like a 6 and Chicago's on like a 9."
