It’s not quite as bad as 49ers fans chanting for David Carr during last season, but the Dolphins organization had a rather embarrassing moment at training camp Monday night.
The fans started booing every underthrown Chad Henne pass, then chanted, “We want Orton!”
Somewhere, Orton’s agent is smiling. Broncos VP John Elway should be smiling too, except he may be leaning towards keeping Orton at this point.
SI.com’s Jim Trotter writes that Orton has “clearly separated” himself at Broncos practices from Tim Tebow, who has struggled in the early going. Orton has looked better by a “wide margin.”
The Broncos staff and players seem to appreciate Orton, but the fans want to get rid of him. The fans in Miami would gladly take Orton off their hands.
