Time for an altitude adjustment.
Brady Quinn, saying he wanted to re-acclimate himself to Denver's elevation, became the third of the Broncos' three quarterbacks from the 2010 season to join his teammates for workouts this week, and he told The Denver Post that in spite of not playing a down last season he is aiming for the starting job.
Orton's trade value could rise
"I want to be No. 1," Quinn said. "I feel they (Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow) both had a chance last year and I didn't get an opportunity. I'd love to get an opportunity to help us win games and get this team to the playoffs and see what happens from there."
The Broncos are coming off a disastrous season that included the midseason firing of coach Josh McDaniels, the man who traded a package that included running back and Madden NFL 12 cover boy Peyton Hillis for Quinn, and culminated with a 4-12 record. That led to the installation of Broncos legend John Elway as the team's chief football executive and the hiring of John Fox as coach.
Orton has been the subject of trade rumors during the offseason and Tebow was a first-round pick in the 2010 draft.
