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.

    Good Rittens...Yeah!!! I think Cutlips had good mechcanics to be QB But his decisions on the field were poor..like how many we lost the game because his bonehead mistakes! and his attitude after the game that his LOST because his mistakes was awfull. Then he has guts to say on TV that the fans in Chiago are more passionate than Denver fans are...:-/ What a Dude!!! what I meant to say What a CRYBABY!!!
