The Denver Broncos have cut backup quarterback Kyle Orton, the Denver Post reports.At first glance this looks like collateral damage from Tebowmania.

But this actually might be a benevolent move by Denver.

The Post is reporting that Orton and his agent are in talks with the Chicago Bears — who now need a quarterback after Jay Cutler broke his thumb on Sunday.
