SB Nation Kansas City's Matt Conner endorsed the move to Orton over Palko, and a fan poll at Arrowhead Pride has Orton leading the pack with 49% of the vote. The free agent from Denver has yet to see significant time for K.C. this season. With the Broncos, Orton threw for 979 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions with a 58.7 completion percentage.
