Kyle Orton Claimed Off Waivers...By Someone

Someone has claimed former Denver Broncos QB Kyle Orton.

Andrew Brandt of National Football Posttweeted shortly after 4:00 p.m. (ET) that Orton has indeed been claimed -- but it's unclear by whom. The waiver wire deadline was at 4:00 p.m. (ET). 

Among the teams included in the Orton speculation over the last 24 hours are the Redskins, Dolphins, Chiefs, Texans and Bears. The Texans appear to have moved on by signing Kellen Clemens and rolling with Matt Leinart.

There's heavy speculation that Orton wants to play for the Bears and the Bears want him in Chicago while Jay Cutler is injured. However, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the unidentified team claimed Orton before Chicago had its chance so he won't be a Bear.

Washington? Miami? Kansas City? The mystery should be emerging soon.
