Bears get Jay Cutler for Kyle Orton and two No.1 picks
The Denver Broncos have agreed to trade unhappy quarterback Jay Cutler to the Chicago Bears, the Sun-Times reported on Thursday.
Cutler was traded for starting quarterback Kyle Orton, a first and third round pick in this year’s draft, and Chicago’s first-round pick in 2010, according to the newspaper.
The Broncos said in a brief statement that terms of the deal will be disclosed later.
The former first-round draft pick wanted out of Denver when he learned in February that new Broncos coach Josh McDaniels pursued a trade with New England for former Patriot, and current Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel.
Cutler threw for 4,526 yards with 25 touchdowns and 18 interceptions last season for the Broncos.
