Well, that didn’t take long.
Denver will go with a quarterback trio of starter Kyle Orton, backup Quinn and No. 3 quarterback Tom Brandstater in 2010. While Quinn will have to fight to be the starter, he is a clear upgrade over Simms as a backup.
Simms was terrible in a limited role while playing for an injured Orton last year.
Meanwhile, Orton told the Denver Post that he will report to the team’s offseason workout program Friday. This is a sign of commitment by Orton. He is a restricted free agent, and until he signs his tender (which isn’t due for months) he doesn’t have to attend the offseason program.
