Cutler Traded to Chicago Bears

Posted Apr 2, 2009

The Broncos agreed in principle to trade Jay Cutler to the Chicago Bears in a package that reportedly sends quarterback Kyle Orton and draft picks to Denver. Head Coach Josh McDaniels will hold a press conference at 11 a.m. MDT today.

UPDATE: Head Coach Josh McDaniels will hold a press conference from the team's Dove Valley headquarters at 11 a.m. MDT today (Friday, April 3). DenverBroncos.com will have a live stream of the conference, and there will be a live blog as well.

The Denver Broncos have agreed in principle to trade quarterback Jay Cutler to the Chicago Bears. Terms of the deal will be disclosed at a later time.

It has been reported that the Broncos will receive a first-round pick in 2009, a third-round pick in 2009, a first-round pick in 2010 and quarterback Kyle Orton in return for Cutler and a fifth-round pick in 2009, though nothing has been officially announced.

In 33 career starts, Orton has compiled a record of 21-12, including a record of 15-2 in home games.

If the reports are correct, the Broncos will have the following picks in the upcoming NFL Draft:

1-12-12 Denver
1-18-18 Denver (from Chicago)
2-16-48 Denver
3-15-79 Denver
3-20-84 Denver (from Chicago)
4-14-114 Denver
5-13-149 Denver
6-12-185 Denver
7-16-225 Denver
7-26-235 Denver (from Atlanta)

It would also mean that over the next two NFL Drafts, the Broncos will have nine picks in the first three rounds.
