Broncos Will Not Wait Long To Decide Jay Cutler’s Future

Posted Mar 17, 2009 by Anwar S. Richardson

As many NFL teams wait to see how the drama with disgruntled Denver QB Jay Cutler turns out, the Broncos may start entertaining trade possibilities this Sunday.

This Sunday is when the NFL Annual Meeting (owners meeting) will begin in Dana Point, California. With every NFL team represented, this is likely when Cutler will be shopped around, assuming he does not change his stance about being traded. Denver will be able to meet face-to-face with other teams and being sorting out the many offers it will likely receive for Cutler.

While many fans in Tampa Bay are hoping the Buccaneers can acquire Cutler, so are many supporters of other NFL teams. As an example, here is today’s back page of Newsday in New York speculating Cutler might join the Jets

In addition, here is an article in today’s Denver Post examining some of Denver’s trade options (not including the Jets, a team in need of a QB this season):

Broncos To Wait, But Not For Long

I don’t think Cutler will go to Arizona because A: Denver doesn’t want to have another impressionable young QB being represented by Bus Cook and B: Arizona just paid Kurt Warner $12 million per year for two years.  That is way too pricey to be a backup QB to Jay Cutler.  I could see Cleveland as Cutler’s next home if he doesn’t get traded to the Bucs.  If Cleveland got him for Brady Quinn then we could get Derek Anderson for a third rounder and Brian Grese.  Hopefully this situation will work itself out and help the Bucs in the process.

Tyler the moves you mentioned dont sound too bad…. I just hope we get some kind of competition for QB during camp, I would prefer Quinn over Anderson though

Please, please, please:  NO Cutler and NOT Josh Freeman!!!  I would rather have an intern throw during camp than spend money on either of these.  Cutler is a brat and Freeman has no resume.

MOVE ON!!  NOTHING TO SEE HERE!!!

StarHawk, while I agree with you about Cutler I believe your opinion on Freeman may be more a tad more “subjective”; because we all know if he played for PU (I mean KU) then resume wouldn’t matter….right?.....thought so!

GET-R-DONE BUCS !!!! Build our offence this season then…build our defense next season when their will be more to choose from. Maybe by 2010-2011 we will be a team to be reckond with. “GO BUCS”

Get Cutler and trade him to KC for Cassal.

That makes zero sense.

I would think trading for Quinn or Leinhart would be Denver’s first choice.

BTW, Samari Rolle would be good FA now to try to sign. Don’t know if he would be much better than Buchannon

kdbucfan,

You know I’m not a K-Satan fan, but still, what has he done?

Erik, stop playing Fantasy Football and thinking we MUST have someone NOW.  There are seven draft picks coming in a couple weeks and Sanchez has started floating around a lot of draft boards.  I think you are calling it waaaayyyyy too early!!

For those keeping score, Kansas City made one trade and signed one free agent so far—have they turned the corner?  No way!  Is Pioli the Wonder Boy?  Too early to tell!!!

My money is on Detroit getting him. Just because his new Coach learned how to be a Dou_he from his old boss. grin  How better could Josh Mcdaniels punish that little ingrate Cutler? Cutler should have realized he was blessed to get a chance to work with a genius like McDaniels and should shined his shoes. How dare Cutler think he earned the right to be considered a franchise caliber QB just because he carried the 29th ranked D to a 8-8 record… Now seriously, pony up a couple of first round picks and get this guy in Pewter and Red.

Football aside, anyone who has lived w/a diabetic or has a diabetic family member or acquaintance knows that irritability, moodiness, stubborness, and temper tantrums are profound symptoms of the disease. It never gets better, it only gets worse. Cutler is already on constant serious meds. Diabetics age, lose physical and mental capacities, faster than others of the same age. This is NFL pro football, how long do you think he’ll last? Sure there’ll be flashes of excellence for a time but he’ll be a cancer to any team that takes him. Bucs….just say NO to Cutler. Bad investment, don’t waste your money!

The Bucs only have one draft pick in the first 83 picks and that’s #19.  We need to start thinking about the defense and replacing those who have been cut or have moved on.  The high draft picks won’t get us starters of any kind.  What are the powers to be thinking, the defense sucked last year and it was decimated by the cuts and the move on’s!

I can’t think of any 1st round pick that will have as much impact as Jay Cutler would have next year under center.  Getting a proven NFL QB with a track record like Cutler (wins/losses aside) is not an everyday occurance as most teams keep their own and very rarely does a QB of Cutler’s stature hit the free agent market.  With that being said, a 1st round pick plus a 3rd or some other combination of picks next year would be worth it.  I still have confidence that we can fix our defense without spending a 1st round pick.  With Cutler under center, we go from an afterthought next year to a contender for the NFC South.

Starhawk in KC, FYI they Chiefs have signed CB T.Daniels, WR Bobby Ingram, Terrance Cooper, & CJ Jones, LB’s Monty Biesel and Darrel Robinson, Saftey Jon McGraw, FB Jed Collins and traded for Cassel and Vrebal.  Thats alot more then 1 trade and 1 signing.  But I will agree that they still havent turned the corner but they are getting there.

Cutler has anger management issues apparently. If he winds up here, the Bucs will need a good shrink on staff.

Por (Donald Ellis) on March 18, 2009 (Suggest removal)

Roland.  How do you figure McDaniels is a good coach?  Dude never coached anything.  BTW, how good was Romeo Cromell and Charlie Weise when they went out on their own.

Stay with the facts psychopathic TB fans.  Clearly athis staff wanted him months ago.  Add a probowl QB along with a PB TE and the top RB in FA and that’s a very good 2009 class.

Don’t ya think if Cutler came to Tampa he’d step up?  The kids not even touching near his prime and he’s a Pro Bowler already.

Por (Jim Kinzer) on March 18, 2009 (Suggest removal)

Mr. Ellis in Mobile…..This so called bunch of Pro Bowlers could not score enough points in any game because of our “Lay Down Defense”!  We had a Swiss Cheese defense that could not stop the run and a secondary led by “Burnt Barber” who could only tackle, not defend the pass. We cut two starting LBs and a good run blocker moved on from the “Sinking Pirate Ship”! Nothing is being done to fix the MANY holes of a D that will be worse than last year!  Your optimism Sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am saying this, I am waiting the trade to happen as much as all of you, If we end up getting Cutler, Who needs another QB in the draft? Cutler would help this situation alot. Imagine the duo together with Antonio Bryant, Kellen Winslow and Michael Clayton even Michael can probably can come back to his stats like he did with his rookie year. The QB that we had wasn’t all that great. So if Cutler is the answer to what the Bucs needs then we are done in offensive and start paying attention the defense situation.

I am surprised that we haven’t got Crowell in here yet or is he staying in Buffalo? If he’s healthy he could’ve been the answer of what we need in defense. So all I am saying give up a first round pick since we do have 19th overall and get Cutler’s butt over here!!

Hey Jim, glad to see I’m not the only one paying attention. I’ve heard “They started 9-3..They started 9-3”..blah blah. Porous (and aging) defense couldn’t keep us in the play-off run. The reality is, is this team just came off back to back 9-7 seasons (with a 4-12 season before that),released or let escape via free agency, 4 starters on defense (with 2 more that should have been released), and did nothing to replace them. Now their confidence in the back-up linebackers is finally exposed with the proposed move of Phillips to weakside (with the back-ups..well, still back-ups), and this team will be lucky to win 4 or 5 games this year. LUCKY. The towel is thrown in for this year. This is a complete rebuilding project.

And before they made all those roster moves, they had ‘0’ plan, unless the plan was to hit the re-start button. I truly hope it was because, if not, than these two are a worse combination than Bush/Cheney. I don’t care how much improved the offense appears to be (still need an OT, WR or 2, QB? How is this offense improved? Because we have a new TE? RBs were always good), our attention will be defense this year, as they break our hearts week after week. Been there, done that already.

Let’s face it, I don’t believe that the Glazers are going to spend the money to get Cutler or any good free agent!  What we get with our 19th pick in the draft must be a very good pick just to fill 1 void.  Picks from #83 on will not result in a starter and we will have to fill the D holes with other cast off’s or go with what we have and that is between Slim and None!

Por (Pat) on March 18, 2009 (Suggest removal)

That’s exactly what it’s about right now. Money. Hired the cheap coach/GM combo, and told them what they could spend, probably? Your absolutely right. I have been reading some things though; With Cassel going to the Chiefs, it could scramble things a bit in the 1st rd, and make that 19th pick a little more enticing to a couple of teams behind us (if, one of two QBs is still available). That would at least get us back into the 2nd rd as well, to save face. This team has so many defensive needs, it’s baffling to me why they made that useless trade.

You know Jim, I’m honestly still not even sure about Gaines Adams. A Defensive player picked within the first 10 picks of the draft, should be a holy-terror,Julius Peppers,Simeon Rice type of disruptive player. I don’t see that with him. Gruden and Allen where terrible at judging talent. We lost all of those 1st and 2nd rd picks for Gruden (and a 3rd), then he brings us Clayton, and faceplant from last year (remember him? Return a kickoff 15 yards, then plant his facemask in the dirt with no-one touching him, for no apparent reason). Unbelievable.cont…
