Jay Cutler will remain a Denver Bronco.
That simple statement should have never been in question, but after four days of escalating rumors, news stories, sports talk radio, forum fodder and conversations around the blogosphere (sorry), Head Coach Josh McDaniels reaffirmed that Cutler will not be traded under any circumstances.
“Let me be as clear as I can about this,” McDaniels told NFL.com‘s Adam Schefter on Tuesday. “We are not trading Jay Cutler — period.”
The Denver Post reports that Cutler, who was nothing short of pissed off at the Broncos upon hearing the rumors, has agreed to return to Denver next week to meet with McDaniels. The plan is to clear the air, mend the situation and move forward for the 2009 season.
“Josh and Jay will sit down and meet next week when Jay gets back from Nashville,” Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth told reporters. “The Denver Broncos are not trading, Jay Cutler. Period.”
The Broncos begin voluntary workouts on March 16th.
This is the beginning of the best-case scenario. I’m looking forward to moving on from this.
