ESPN: The Bears acquired disgruntled Broncos QB Jay Cutler in a
trade on Thursday afternoon, giving up QB Kyle Orton and 1st-round
picks in 2009 (18th overall) and 2010, along with a 3rd-round pick
(84th overall) in 2009 to do it. To complete the trade, the
Broncos had to give back a 5th-round pick (140th overall) in 2009.
That pick was acquired by the Broncos from the Seahawks in a trade
for WR Keary Colbert. The Bears beat out the Redskins, Bucs,
Lions, Titans and other teams to land the 25-year-old Pro Bowl QB.
The Broncos had made it clear they were asking for at least two
1st-round choices. Cutler had asked to be traded when he found out
1st-year Denver coach Josh McDaniels tried to acquire Matt Cassel
in a trade with the Patriots. "I don't have any concerns," Bears
GM Jerry Angelo said. "[Coach Lovie Smith] and I talked about
that. We did, like a lot of people who were interested in Jay, a
lot of work going back to not just when he was with Denver [but]
but going back to his days at Vanderbilt."
