There's been plenty of speculation that the Kansas City Chiefs could be among the teams putting a claim in on Kyle Orton, who was waived by the Denver Broncos on Tuesday.

Chiefs head coach Todd Haley had an opportunity to shut the door on the Orton talk in his weekly appearance with Adam Schein and Rich Gannon on SiriusXM NFL Radio Wednesday but he didn't take it.

Instead, Haley left the door open on Orton.

He called Orton an "interesting name" out there who could add to the position. He didn't come out one way or the other and say the Chiefs will (or won't) claim him, but he had an opportunity to say no on Orton to KC, and he didn't take it. That could tell us something.

If the Chiefs want him, there are only eight teams ahead of them on the waiver wire (via PFT): (1) Colts (2) Panthers (3) Rams (4) Vikings (5) Cardinals (6) Redskins (7) Jaguars and (8) Dolphins
