Broncos trying to trade QB Jay Cutler

March 31, 2009 at 10:15 PM   |   Comments

DENVER, March 31 (UPI) -- Denver Chief Executive Officer Pat Bowlen announced Tuesday the Broncos are now trying to trade apparently unhappy quarterback Jay Cutler.

"Numerous attempts to contact Jay Cutler in the last 10 days, both by Coach Josh McDaniels and myself, have been unsuccessful," Bowlen said. "A conversation with his agent earlier today clearly communicated and confirmed to us that Jay no longer has any desire to play for the Denver Broncos."

Two weeks ago, Cutler's agent, Bus Cook, made a request to the Broncos for a trade. At the time, McDaniels said he wanted to keep Cutler as the team's quarterback. Earlier, Denver considered a trade to add former Patriots quarterback Matt Cassel but Cassel was traded to Kansas City.

Cutler, a one-time Pro Bowl selection, was drafted by the Broncos in the first round in 2006 out of Vanderbilt. He threw for 25 touchdowns last season but also 18 interceptions. In 37 starts in three seasons, Cutler has thrown for 54 touchdowns, with 37 interceptions.
