Multiple Chicago reports say the Bears will claim Orton. But will he get there?
ESPN’s John Clayton said on SportsCenter Wednesday that Orton is “trying to get word out” that he may not report to the Chiefs if Kansas City claims him.
(Presumably, part of getting the word out is telling Clayton to go on ESPN to talk about it.)
A report by NFL.com said earlier Thursday that the Chiefs are “considering” placing a claim on Orton, which is no surprise. It’s clear Orton wants to play for the Bears. That’s why he pushed for his release.
We’d like to thank the Broncos and Orton for spicing up an otherwise quiet Wednesday.
