Broncos Sign WR Greg Orton; Waive Mark Dell

The Denver Broncos on Saturday evening announced that the team had signed wide receiver Greg Orton, designating wide receiver Mark Dell as waived/injured, making room on the roster.

A former undrafted free agent who signed with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2009, Orton went on to play two seasons in the Arena Football League. Last season, Orton was a member of the Omaha Nighthawks -- an upstart United Football League team.

Although he shares his last name and college alum (Purdue University), Greg Orton is not related to Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton.

It's sad to see Dell go, he looked like he had a lot of potential. If he clears waivers, the team can place him on the injured reserve list. Orton was an incredible arena receiver, it will be interesting to see how he does back in the pros.
