Destination Unknown: Jay Cutler To Be Traded

Vincent JacksonCorrespondent IApril 1, 2009

After weeks of whispers, rumors, and an unhappy front office, Denver Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen has decided to try to trade quarterback Jay Cutler.

From Bowlen on DenverBroncos.com:

"A conversation with his agent earlier today clearly communicated and confirmed to us that Jay no longer has any desire to play for the Denver Broncos. We will begin discussions with other teams in an effort to accommodate his request to be traded."

The decision comes off the heels of a tumultuous off-season that saw Denver lose Mike Shanahan and gain former New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels in January.

Cutler and McDaniels never saw eye to eye as it related to retaining the coaching staff that made Cutler a 4,500 yard, 25 touchdown pass Pro Bowler in 2008, as well as trade rumors involving McDaniels trying to bring Matt Cassel with him from New England.

The potential shipping of Cutler burns Bronco Nation and now makes him the target of the New York Jets who are looking for a quarterback to compete with Tom Brady in the AFC East.

More on this blockbuster development as details become available.
