About a few days ago, I mentioned that Jay Cutler is not coming to DC according to Vinny Cerrato. Well, that has change drastically believe or not. Last night, Broncos owner Pat Bowlen announced that he will trading his pro bowl quarterback before the draft. There are at least seven teams interested in acquiring Cutler; the Jets, Buccaneers, Bears, Lions, and Browns. All six of these teams have a top 10 pick in this year's draft. However, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Redskins are among the leading candidates to acquire Cutler.
"The Washington Redskins are among the leading candidates to pull off a deal for Cutler. The Redskins have a proven young quarterback in Jason Campbell and would meet the Broncos' preference of dealing Cutler outside their American Football Conference. The Redskins also have the No. 13 selection in this year's draft on April 25, one spot behind the Broncos."
But Mike Florio of Profootball talk had a interesting take on this about this possible trade that could also involve Mike Shannan in the near future.
"The move isn’t surprising to us; we’ve heard chatter for several weeks that the Redskins are interested. Last month, executive V.P. of football operations Vinny Cerrato issued a carefully-worded non-denial denial of interest in Cutler. Another key angle at play here is the status of former Denver coach Mike Shanahan. The Redskins could be eyeballing a one-two punch that would involve getting Cutler now, and then getting Shanahan in 2010."
First of all, how in the world the Redskins can actually pull off this trade. They are 9 million under the cap, and Cutler is probably worth three times more then 9 million. Does Daniel Snyder knows that the NFL has a salary cap? Oh he knows that the league will have a uncapped year in 2010 and a possible lockout in 2011? Then again, Cutler is a one of five best QB in the NFL, and if they had a Defense in Denver, he would easily taking them to the playoffs. Anyway, I believe that those six teams listed above, have a better chance at acquiring Cutler because Denver will want more leverage, such as getting a top 10 draft choice in exchange, and the Redskins selection is at 13. But Snyder always wants to win the off season and pull off trades that will send shock waves to the league. Stay Tuned!!!!!!!!
UPDATE: The skins are now virtually interested in the Jay Culter sweepstakes that includes a trade for Jason Campbell and 2nd round pick to Denver according to Jason La Canfoura from the Washington Post. If this deal happens, Daniel Snyder has continued to run this franchise into the ground even further. Stay tuned for more info regarding Jay Cutler.
