Chicago Bears get Jay Cutler from Broncos

April 3, 2009

(ChattahBox) — The Chicago Bears acquired highly coveted quarterback Jay Cutler from the Denver Broncos but the prices was heavy. They traded their own starting quarterback Kyle Orton and first-round picks in the 2009 and 2010 drafts, the team said on Thursday. The Broncos will also get the Bears’ 2009 third-round draft pick in exchange for their fifth-round pick.

But young talented all-pro quarterbacks don’t come cheap disgruntled or not. Last year, Cutler threw for a franchise record 4,526 yards, 25 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. In his 37-game career in Denver, he completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 9,024 yards, 54 TDs and 37 interceptions.  In a complementary move, the Bears also agreed to a three-year deal with free agent Orlando Pace, a seven-time Pro Bowl tackle released by the Rams to help protect their new quarterback.
