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.
