New home Chicago: Broncos ship disgruntled QB Cutler to Bears
NFL.com Wire Reports
The Denver Broncos have agreed to trade disgruntled quarterback Jay Cutler to the Chicago Bears.
Jay Cutler, QB
Passer Rating: 86.0
Passing Yards: 4,526
The Broncos announced the deal Thursday and said terms would be disclosed later.
NFL.com's Steve Wyche reports that the Broncos will receive first-round draft picks this year and in 2010, a third-round pick (84th overall) this year and quarterback Kyle Orton in exchange for Cutler and a 2009 fifth-round selection.
The Broncos were trading Cutler on his terms, and there was no shortage of teams lining up to take a crack at acquiring the 25-year-old Pro Bowl passer.
Cutler had asked for a trade last month after his relationship with new coach Josh McDaniels soured. Their relationship began to disintegrate when McDaniels broached a potential trade of Cutler for Matt Cassel earlier this offseason
Denver now has 2 1st round picks, a #2, and 2 #3's this year not to mention 2 #1's next year. None of the QB's Denver has, including Orton, is capable of leading the team to the playoffs.
I have to believe Denver is wanting to trade up to get Mark Sanchez or Josh Freeman.
