Broncos QB Cutler Asks for Trade

Denver Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler said last night that he will not report to the team’s first meeting today and has formally asked to be traded, ESPN.com reported last night. He said a Saturday meeting with first-year coach Josh McDaniels ended badly.

“I went in there with every intention of solving the issue, being a Bronco, moving forward as a Bronco,” Cutler said. “We weren’t in there but about 20 minutes, [McDaniels] did most of the talking and as far as I’m concerned, he made it clear he wants his own guy. He admitted he wanted Matt Cassel because he said he has raised him up from the ground as a quarterback. He said he wasn’t sorry about it. He made it clear that he could still entertain trading me because, as he put it, he’ll do whatever he feels is in the best interest of the organization. At the end of the meeting, he wasn’t like, ‘Jay, I want you as our quarterback, you’re our guy.’ It felt like the opposite.”

Reaction: Jay Cutler is a baby. 

On the other hand, Josh McDaniels¬†is going through way more than he ever did in New England and it would appear he’s in way over his head. I highly doubt the Broncos will be able to find a quarterback better than Cutler through a trade or the draft after Cassel went to the Chiefs. I do NOT envy Josh McDaniels at the moment…
