Kyle Orton retires from NFL
Quarterback Kyle Orton has announced his retirement from the NFL after 10 seasons with five teams.
Orton spent the 2014 season with the Buffalo Bills after signing with them late in the preseason. He started 12 games and posted a 7-5 record after relieving E.J. Manuel, who got off to a poor start to the year.
“I just have been going at it for 10 years and it’s just a family decision and I’ve decided to get home and be a dad and call it a day,” Orton said in a press release.
Orton was drafted by the Bears in the fourth round of the 2005 draft. After four years with Chicago, Orton bounced around to the Broncos, Chiefs, Cowboys and Bills. He'll conclude his career with 18,037 yards, 101 touchdowns and 69 interceptions.
