Coach Josh McDaniels made the announcement Saturday as the team readied for Sunday's final day of on-field prep for training camp in late July. The former Chicago Bears quarterback took all the snaps behind the first-team offensive line during Saturday's practice.
Orton has been competing for the starting position with Chris Simms.
Orton came to Denver on April 3 as part of the trade that allowed the Bears to get ex-Broncos No. 1 quarterback Jay Cutler.
Orton completed 272 of 465 passes for 2,812 yards with Chicago last season, throwing 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
