First off, I'd like to say that I'm not the best at grammar and punctuation, and I don't always know the best way to word things, but I'll try.
I've seen this "RUMOR" floating around that Orton says he refuses to report if anyone other than Chicago claims him off waivers. I'm going to go ahead and say that I think this is all just a smoke screen by whoever started it. I never read into "RUMORS" or reports coming from "INSIDE SOURCES" unless it comes from Adam Shefter. He is usually spot on with his accusations, so unless it came from him, I wouldn't read too far into it, but on the other hand let's assume these reports are correct.
1) The Chiefs claim him and 2) He doesn't report.
The Chiefs will not have to pay him and they will also receive a Compensatory Pick for him in next years Draft. This sounds like a win win for the Chiefs, they get a free pick and it won't cost them anything. This leaves me with 2 questions though.
1) What round would the pick be?
2) Would he still count against the 53 man roster if he doesn't report?
Would someone with more knowledge on the situation please help me out? Thank You and GO CHIEFS!
