NFL Quarterback of Kyle Orton signed with AFC West divisional rival Kansas City Chiefs after he had been released from the Benver Broncos. Orton was released by the Broncos on Tuesday, six weeks after he was benched following a 1-4 start.

The Chiefs will be responsible for approximately $2.5 million remaining on Orton’s nearly $8.9 million salary this season, but they had plenty of space under the salary cap to make the move.
