Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler has formally asked to be traded, a request he made Sunday through his agent, Bus Cook.
For now, the Broncos are hoping to appease Cutler’s concerns and reach an understanding so they do not have to trade him, coach Josh McDaniels told The Denver Post on Sunday night.
Cutler and Cook issued the trade request a day after a meeting with McDaniels and general manager Brian Xanders did not go the way quarterback had hoped.
“I would like to talk to Jay before we go on and start to discuss some other type of alternative,” McDaniels said Sunday night. “In the last couple weeks, we’ve been all about trying to communicate and resolve his unhappiness with what happened â which we understand â and that’s been our direction.”
It won’t happen at McDaniels’ first team meeting, which will be held this morning at the Dove Valley headquarters. Cutler will not be there.
