Training Camp: Boo-birds rain down on new Denver Broncos QB Kyle Orton - ESPN
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- New Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton didn't get the warm welcome he anticipated when he made his unofficial debut at Invesco Field on Thursday night.
Orton was booed by the crowd of 13,402 -- the largest crowd ever to watch a Broncos practice -- when he was picked off twice by free agent cornerback Andre' Goodman, the second of which was returned for a long touchdown.
Orton, who also was jeered when he threw behind wide receiver Chad Jackson, said afterward it was the crowd's prerogative to let the Broncos know how they felt.
Orton was acquired from Chicago in the offseason for Pro Bowl passer Jay Cutler.
The crowd also booed punter Brett Kern for a pair of poor punts and also let kicker Matt Prater have it for missing consecutive 43-yard field goal attempts at the end of the scrimmage.
