Brandon Marshall has stated that Kyle Orton is the best quarterback he has ever played with.
In a recent twitter Q&A session, the New York Jets wide receiver stated Orton was the best quarterback he has ever played with.
Marshall and Orton only played together for one season at the Denver Broncos, the 2009 season. In that season, the wide receiver had 101 receptions for 1,120 yards and 10 touchdowns.

In this season, the Broncos did not qualify for the playoffs as they finished 8-8.
Evaluating the Orton-Marshall performance against what the five-time Pro Bowler accomplished during his time with Jay Cutler at the Chicago Bears makes you think, why on earth did he pick Orton?
One factor might be that Marshall was able to break the most receptions in a single game record during the 2009 season in a game against the Indianapolis Colts with 21 receptions. Orton was the quarterback during that game.
Surely though the fact Cutler helped Marshall to one of the best seasons of his career in 2012 must outweigh this accomplishment? In this season, Marshall achieved 118 catches for 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns.
He's even referred to Cutler as his brother in an interview for ESPN.
He said: "We love each other, but also get into it. And it's always been that way and it will never change."
Marshall will be playing the remaining part of his career with the New York Jets as I revealed last week. If Orton is the standard set for Marshall's best ever quarterback he's ever played with, maybe Geno Smith has a fair shout of dethroning him.
