The Broncos have signed QB Kyle Orton to a contract extension, the team announced late Thursday. Reports indicate his contract was extended by one year, which will keep him in Denver through the 2011 season.

Denver brought in competition for Orton this offseason, trading for Brady Quinn and drafting Tim Tebow, but Orton has clearly outperformed both newcomers and was rewarded with a deal that could pay him a little more than $12 million over the next two seasons, according to reports.

"(Orton's) leadership and knowledge of the offense have enabled him to have a solid offseason and training camp, and we are collectively looking forward to the 2010 season," head coach Josh McDaniels said in a statement.

Orton was a restricted free agent this offseason and signed a one-year tender worth $2.62 million in April.
