Englewood, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos have agreed to trade disgruntled Quarterback Jay Cutler to the Chicago Bears. The Broncos announced the deal Thursday.

The NFL says the deal will reportedly send Quarterback Kyle Orton to Denver along with Chicago's 2009 and 2010 first-round draft picks. The Broncos also get Chicago's 2009 third-round draft pick.

The Broncos were trading Cutler on his terms and there was no shortage of teams lining up to take a crack at acquiring the 25-year-old Pro Bowl passer.

Cutler had asked for a trade last month after his relationship with new Coach Josh McDaniels soured. McDaniels had talked to other teams about trading his rocket-armed passer.
