- According to Howe, Orton will revert to the injured reserve list if he ends up clearing waivers.
- Shalize Manza Young of The Boston Globe reports that New England has signed receivers Cole Stanford and Brian Tyms to their roster.
Orton, 27, just signed with the team a few days ago, but unfortunately suffered a torn Achilles during Friday’s practice.
He originally signed with the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue back in 2009. Orton has bounced around with a number of teams since then including the Broncos, Omaha Nighthawks, Arizona Rattlers and the Spokane Shock. Orton has yet to appear in an NFL game.
