Denver Broncos to Trade QB Jay Cutler

April 1, 2009

(ChattahBox) — It appears diplomacy has now ended and young All-Pro Quarterback Jay Cutler will get his wish to be traded.  Broncos owner Pat Bowlen said that the team came to the decision after both he and head coach Josh McDaniels tried unsuccessfully to contact Cutler who seemed to refuse to take their calls.  Cutler became upset after learning the Broncos had made an attempt to trade for Matt Cassel who worked with new Denver coach McDaniels in New England.

The Broncos still appear to have leverage, because many teams might be in the mix for the 25-year-old rocket-armed quarterback than there were before.  Cutler is halfway through a six-year, $48 million contract he signed as the 11th overall pick out of Vanderbilt in the 2006 draft and will be likely demanding an extension from any team that trades for him.  Cutler set several franchise passing records last season, when he threw for 4,526 yards, 25 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. In his 37-game career in Denver, he’s completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 9,024 yards, 54 TDs and 37 interceptions.
