Should the Giants sign quarterback Kyle Orton?

Kyle Orton is a free agent. Should the Giants look into signing him? We have written again and again, including earlier today, that Ryan Nassib has yet to prove to the New York Giants that he can be their backup quarterback.

Kyle Orton was once the Bears' starting quarterback. While he had many shortcomings, he had the team on the verge of the playoffs and ended up being the major chip that allowed the Bears to trade for Jay Cutler.

Long ago, in the dark ages of the Bears' struggles to find a quarterback, they were led by a man named Orton. Orton had a neckbeard that was mighty and he played valiantly. With his questionable arm strength, statuesque speed and tenacious leadership he actually had...

Cowboys explain Kyle Orton decision

OXNARD, Calif. -- All offseason the Dallas Cowboys operated under the notion that Kyle Orton would be their backup quarterback in 2014 even if he failed to show up for the entire offseason program, including the mandatory minicamp.
