Soon after, Kyle Orton’s professional career in football started with the 2005 NFL Draft, in which he was selected by the Chicago Bears, as the 106th overall pick. He didn’t expect to play at all his first season, however, an injury kept Rex Grossman, the starting quarterback, sidelined for the majority of the 2005 season.
