It's in principle, but Jay Cutler is the newest addition and next QB for the Chicago Bears!!

ESPN Reports that the Broncos and Bears have come to a principle agreement to trade the quarterback, but details have yet to be realeased.

The Broncos have confirmed the move, who are set to get Kyle Orton plus two first round picks, one this year and another in 2010.

The Broncos let Cutler go along with an undisclosed draft pick, initial indications seem to be that it's a 3rd rounder according to ESPN.

The Chicago Sun Times reports that the Bears are sending a 1st rounder this year and next, plus a 2009 third round pick, while the Broncos are sending a 2009 fifth rounder.
