Recently traded quarterback Jay Cutler may have left Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels a unique going-away present.

In the early hours of Friday, April 3, Denver Police arrested Kenny Manuel, 17, for allegedly vandalizing McDaniels’ Denver home.

Authorities obtained Manuel in an abandoned alleyway just minutes from McDaniels’ house after responding to a 911 call that reported intruders on McDaniels' property.

Police treated the incident as an attempted robbery until Manuel handed out one of the most improbable accusations in criminal history.

Upon detention, Manuel told authorities that he was hired to vandalize McDaniels’ home by former Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler.

According to Manuel, he met Cutler at a 2007 high school football event and exchanged  text messages once or twice during the 2008 football season.

Manuel claims that on April 3, one day after Cutler was traded to the Chicago Bears, he received a text message from Cutler asking for a favor.

According to Manuel, Cutler offered to pay $5,000 if he vandalized Josh McDaniels’  home.

Sgt. James Callahan was skeptical of the story’s validity, but maintained that the Denver Police Department will pursue any possibility concerning the case. “Manuel is far from a credible source,” Callahan told reporters, “But we are investigating the circumstances surrounding his arrest from every angle, and expect to have the matter resolved shortly.”

Both Jay Cutler and his agent, Bus Cook, were unavailable for comment.
