08:03 AM ET 05.13 | Stealing the show for the Brian Dawkins-led workouts in Colorado was Kyle Orton. Orton was trying to get through his passing workout without showing off. Orton, who is the Broncos' starting quarterback today, but with no guarantee for tomorrow, arrived before the team's player-supervised workout Thursday, as he did Tuesday, at the South Suburban Sports Dome to throw passes to wide receiver Eric Decker and tight end Dan Gronkowski. Even though it's May, and even though Orton was throwing to uncovered receivers, his arm, footwork, release and accuracy appear to be ready for a game. ... LenDale White is still about six weeks from participating in football-type drills. "Tell Tim Tebow we're looking for him," White said playfully. Tebow is out of town working out on his own.

Ah, we're getting the finger again......

Note to Justin Tuck - this practice was led by Brian Dawkins...

A Defensive team leader...

"And now for my next trick, I will attempt to raise Denver's offense from the dead."

And - before this dives deeply into the normal T&R silliness...


RIP Ron Springs!!!

A courageous fight came to an end yesterday.

Someone should tell LenDale White that he's lucky to be on an NFL roster.

Tebow will be doing infomercials for bow flex here pretty soon.

Tim's jersey probably has many sales.

Timmy was "catching" passes from Father O'Malley.

Very sad. He was a joy to watch.

If Denver commits to the Tim Tebow Era, then some other team will be very happy to get Kyle Orton. Why go with an over-the-hill McNabb, a head-case Young or a never-gonna-get-there Kolb when you could have Kyle Orton?

I'm surprised he is... I didn't know anybody had picked him up after his release from the Seahawks last year. Either way he'll fade away into oblivion soon enough... as for Tebow, it would be good if he were there but a vast majority of players aren't showing up for these impromptu workouts, the Giants only had like 9 guys show up for theirs, so who cares.

That finger looks like it can pick a winner.
