Cutler-to-'Skins talks intensify

Earlier today, we rounded up the Jay Cutler rumors, noting that the Washington Redskins had been named as a possible landing spot for the disgruntled QB.

And now an update.

NFL sources tell Jason La Canfora of The Washington Post that the Redskins are actively pursuing a trade for Cutler. One of the sources tells La Canfora that Washington is trying to get the deal done as quickly as possible, but the Bucs and Jets are also showing interest in Cutler.

What would such a move mean for Jason Campbell? A source tells La Canfora that a high-ranking 'Skins official contacted one team today about possibly dealing Campbell for a second-round pick.

We'll be back later tonight or in the morning with any updates. Certainly if Cutler lands in the NFC East, it would generate some interest from this crowd.

Notes

** Donte Stallworth has been charged with killing a pedestrian while driving drunk. If convicted of DUI manslaughter, he would face up to 15 years in prison, per the Associated Press. Stallworth is expected to surrender Thursday.

** Robert Powell, the officer who stopped Ryan Moats from seeing his dying mother in-law, has resigned. "I made this decision in the hope that my resignation will allow the Dallas Police Department, my fellow officers and the citizens of Dallas to better reflect on this experience, learn from the mistakes made, and move forward," he said in a statement.
