More Than Ten Teams Interested in Cutler

The Denver Post says “more than 10″ teams have contacted the Broncos about the possibility of working a trade for disgruntled quarterback Jay Cutler.  The story doesn’t name any of the “more than 10″ teams, but it does say the Broncos have told all of them that Cutler is not on the block.  This should encourage Bus Cook, who is clearly orchestrating all this madness, to make even more public statements about what a bunch of rotten, mendacious SOBs Pat Bowlen, Josh McDaniels and the rest of those Denver guys are.

And what are the chances that the Vikings were one of the 10+ teams that got in touch with the Broncos?  There are 32 teams in the NFL (I’m counting the Raiders as an actual NFL team here).  Obviously, you immediately subtract the Broncos (unless they’ve gone schizo).  Then you cut out the teams you figure absolutely aren’t looking for a quarterback (clearly subjective).  By my count, this leaves you with 19 possible destinations for Cutler.  So, basically, there’s better than a 50/50 chance the Vikings were one of the teams that contacted Denver.  Yeah, I’m a little bored.  My brackets are already busted so I’m looking for other distractions.

    A good article to write while you are bored, would be what the possible teams wanting Cutler, would offer in a trade.  All ive read is 1,2,3 draft picks.  No one has really gone into depth over what teams could give up for Cutler, it would be interesting to see if the Vikings could have an advantage here as far as trade bait, or if they would have to offer substantially more than others.  Just an Idea.  I don’t like basketball, let alone college basketball, so I’m really bored during this time.

    The NY Times published an analysis showing Cutler and Favre are comparable:

    He will end up in NY Jets green next year. Thomas Jones will stop his holdout and everything in New Jersey will be blissful for about 5 minutes. They they will realize that they still are in the AFC East and will still find a way to lose.

    Umm Okay?  Why the Jets?

  • Mike

    The Jets will get Cutler because, according to Peter King, they are willing to pay more than any other team (the big NY market needs a big name QB).  But the Jets will need their former coach Mangini at the Browns to offer Brady Quinn in a 3 way trade to the Broncos, because Denver needs a QB in return.  The Browns don’t need Cutler as much as draft picks for rebuilding and are satisfied with Derek Anderson.  The other major suitors also can’t offer Denver a QB in return, including the Bucs and Lions (and Vikings), but are also not willing to spend the draft picks to the Browns that the Jets are.  But the trade could have an effect on the Vikings because if Favre comes back he would likely be released immediately by the Jets, leaving him to go wherever he wants and we all know where that is.
