Could Redskins land Cutler?

Could Redskins land Cutler?


We've sometimes criticized the Eagles for their lack of communication here at MTC.

But we've never see anything quite like the Jay Cutler situation in Denver, which reached a boiling point yesterday when the team publicly came out and said it will look to deal the young quarterback.

"Numerous attempts to contact Jay Cutler in the last 10 days, both by head coach Josh McDaniels and myself, have been unsuccessful," owner Pat Bowlen said in a statement, per The Denver Post. "A conversation with his agent earlier today clearly communicated and  irmed to us that Jay no longer has any desire to play for the Denver Broncos. We will begin discussions with other teams in an effort to accommodate his request to be traded."

Meanwhile, a source close to Cutler told Mike Kils of The Denver Post that the QB has not heard from the Broncos since last Tuesday, and that he was surprised by Bowlen's statement.

Whatever the case may be, the fact is Cutler will not be suiting up for the Broncos next season.

So the obvious question is, where will he land?

According to Klis, the Washington Redskins are among the leading candidates to land Cutler. Klis reports that the Jets are also expected to pursue him. Other teams mentioned in the report are the Bucs, Lions, Vikings and Bears.

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reports that the Browns and 49ers could be in the mix also.

ESPN's John Clayton mentioned a scenario where Cleveland's Brady Quinn could be shipped to Denver.

And's Peter King threw the Panthers name out there as a possibility as well.

I know some criticize Cutler for being a baby in this whole ordeal. But the guy is only 25-years-old and has shown he has a high ceiling. Teams would be crazy to not think about pursuing him. As I've mentioned before, would you rather take a shot on Matthew Stafford or Mark Sanchez in the draft, or go into next season with Cutler, who has 37 games of NFL experience under his belt?

It's a no-brainer if you ask me.
