Orton and Fitzgerald get some practice time together

Kyle Orton, who has frequently been rumored as a possible trade target for the Cardinals, joined Larry Fitzgerald’s famous workouts in Minnesota on Thursday.

The picture to the right also including Broncos receiver Eric Decker was taken by Fitzgerald.  He apparently said he’s known Orton for a while, so don’t read too much into things.

We won’t fall for that trap.

Clearly, a picture of two friends working out together is a sign that Fitzgerald is covertly working as the Cardinals G.M. and has worked out a trade for Orton in exchange for Derek Anderson, a third-round pick, and a bag of footballs.  Case closed.

  1. If Denver doesn’t want Anderson included in the trade then the third round pick is changed to a sixth round pick.

  2. Love it. Larry wants to win and Orton is their best option to do that. Orton is one of a dozen or so guys in the world who can competently play QB in the NFL. QB alone should improve the team, let alone Patrick Peterson who was probably the best player in the draft and Ryan Williams to replace bounce busted Beanie.

  3. Given a double coverage assignment of shutting down both Fitz and Decker, Orton’s Dad was really winded by the end of the workouts.

  4. I think who the Cardinals pick between Orton and Kolb will come down to whoever demands the least amount of money. The Bidwills tend to be cheapskates. It’s for that reason that certain franchises like the Cardinals and Bengals will continue to be bottomfeeders until their current owners kick the bucket.

  5. Why are we assuming Orton is moving to the Cards? Can’t Orton be trying to swing a deal to bring Fitz to Denver? He even brought his pal Eric Decker around to help. It’ll be Brandon Lloyd, Tim Tebow, and anything Josh McDaniels left in his office for Fitz. Fitz will enough have the signing bonus of Decker becoming his live-in butler/3rd wideout. Just wait and see.
    But seriously, Rosenthal, we’ve had enough issues in Denver without joking about bringing in Anderson. You don’t need to kick us while we’re down…

  6. as a cheifs fan and a cardinals fan i would both love to see the broncos be forced to start teebow and the cardinals get orton and not kolb. yeah too good to be true. on the other hand if the cardinals get rid of fitz i may just give up on them but that is an exellent point forevercorr.

  7. AS a Broncos fan since way back in the mists of time, I really like Orton. He’s not flashy, but he’s solid and smart. Sadly, I am pretty sure that he will be gone, and Arizona seems like a great fit.
