Denver Post: After weeks of contention, McJaygate ended happily,
at least for Broncos officials on the top floor of Dove Valley.
Denver shipped disgruntled QB Jay Cutler to the Bears on Thursday
in a blockbuster trade, putting an end to the acrimonious saga
between new coach Josh McDaniels and his unhappy QB. The Broncos
received QB Kyle Orton, two 1st-round picks and a 3rd-round pick
in exchange for Cutler and a 5th-round pick. "I'm sure he's
excited to move on and play in Chicago, and we're excited about
the opportunity we have," McDaniels said. And no, McDaniels did
not try to call Cutler to inform him of the trade, not after the
team's difficulty getting hold of Cutler the past 10 days.
Instead, Broncos GM Brian Xanders notified Cutler's agent, Bus
Cook, that the deal had been consummated. "I don't feel like Jay
would have had any more desire to speak to me now than he's had in
the past," McDaniels said. Cutler declined to comment upon hearing
of the trade.
