Jay Cutler Wants Out of Denver

Tim YoungContributor IMarch 16, 2009

It's official—Jay Cutler, the young gunslinger, wants out of Denver.

The report broke late Sunday night, when Cutler told ESPN that his talks with new head coach Josh McDaniels didn't go as planned.

"We weren't in there but about 20 minutes, [McDaniels] did most of the talking and as far as I'm concerned, he made it clear he wants his own guy."

Cutler went on to say, "At the end of the meeting, he wasn't like, 'Jay, I want you as our quarterback, you're our guy.' It felt like the opposite. He basically said that I needed to tell him if we can't work this out, to let him know."

"I thought he was antagonizing me and that was disappointing because I was ready to move on, committed as a Bronco. Really, I figured we'd hash things out, shake hands, laugh a little and move forward. What happened [Saturday] was the last thing I expected. If I didn't think it could be fixed, I never would have come back to Denver. It was painfully obvious to me and Bus [Cook, his agent] it's not something they want to fix."

Over the weekend, Cutler put his Denver-area home on the market.

If you are reading this, Jay, I just want you to know one thing—the housing market in Minneapolis is amazing right now!
