The Vikings-Broncos Trade Becomes More Likely

Mark JohnsonContributor IMarch 3, 2009

Third-year Pro-Bowl quarterback Jay Cutler from Vanderbilt expressed his frustration with the front office of the Denver Bronco's last weekend after being informed of a discussed three-way trade involving the Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, and the New England Patriots.

Cutler came out publicly, bashing the Bronco's young coaching staff and accusing them of betrayal. Obviously, the chemistry between these two parties is not the most loving we've seen in recent years.

While this mishap hurts the Denver Bronco's organization as a whole, the Minnesota Vikings are seemingly trying to string this whole controversy to their benefit by organizing a trade for Cutler.

According to the Star-Tribune, the Minnesota Vikings, thought to be a quarterback away from the Super Bowl for the past year, are reportedly in the process of discussing trade possibilities with the Denver Bronco's.

While it is uncertain what the Viking's are willing to offer for Cutler, experts are starting to believe it could be Tarvaris Jackson, Sage Rosenfels or John David Booty, three quarterbacks that currently hold roster spots on the Viking's roster and possibly a third round pick. This seems to be a small price to pay for what is quite possibly the missing piece in the Viking's Puzzle.

While this process continues to be mere speculation, it is apparent that the Denver Bronco's rookie management and Jay Cutler are not seeing eye to eye. Also, the Minnesota Vikings are reportedly the only team showing genuine interest in Cutler.

While Detroit seemed to express interest earlier in the week, those talks have faded leaving all eyes on Minnesota.
