The Chicago Bears have emerged as the so-called winners in the Jay Cutler sweepstakes, acquiring the disgruntled Denver quarterback in a blockbuster trade.

The Bears surrendered two first round draft picks (they had the 18th pick in this month's draft), plus a third round pick and starting quarterback Kyle Orton, according to Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com. The Broncos also gave the Bears a fifth round pick.

Cutler replaces Orton as the Bears' starting quarterback. He is signed through 2011.

Orton, who will be a free agent after 2009, joins a quarterback depth chart in Denver that is led by recently-signed Chris Simms.
