DENVER (AP) - Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen said he's pleased with the trade that sent Pro Bowl quarterback Jay Cutler to the Chicago Bears and that both sides got what they wanted.
"We're happy with where we're at," Bowlen told the Associated Press on Tuesday night. "I'm happy for Jay. I think he's going to a good organization."
The Broncos dealt Cutler and a fifth-round draft pick to the Bears on April 2 for quarterback Kyle Orton, two first-round draft picks and a third-rounder, ending a six-week feud that began when Cutler decided he didn't want to play for new coach Josh McDaniels.
"He didn't want to be in Denver. He made that clear," Bowlen said. "He's going on with his career, and we're going on with our team."
