The thought of both Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall wearing a different shade of orange and blue in 2009 is enough to make most Denver Broncos fans cringe. With the recent Marshall trade drama, the scenario isn’t entirely unlikely.
Cutler, now a member of the Chicago Bears, is aware of this. Never one afraid to speak his mind, Cutler spoke highly of Marshall in an interview with the Newport News (Va.) Daily Press Tuesday, sounding hopeful the higher-ups in Chicago would look at bringing in Marshall. Quotes after the jump.
“I talked to ‘B’ a few days ago. Just checking in on him and seeing how he’s doing, because I went through a similar thing that he’s going through.
“I played with Brandon for three years and I think he’s one of the best receivers in the NFL. I think he can be one of the greatest ever to play.
“He’s big and fast, and can do everything you want him to do, on the field and in the meeting room. I don’t know what we’re going to do. That’s up to the guys upstairs. If we make a run at him, we make a run at him.”
While not openly campaigning for #15 to make the commute to Chicago, Cutler made it clear that he wouldn’t mind being reunited with his former favorite target. I’m sure Brandon wouldn’t mind, either.
I’m hoping the Broncos, however, aren’t in the same hurry to appease Marshall that they were in to rid themselves of Cutler. Trading BMarsh simply sends the wrong message, and it’s time for McDaniels and Bowlen to show the players and fans who is running the show. Sorry, Cutler, I think you’ll be left with Devin Hester and company for awhile.
