The first source said McDaniels wouldn't confirm or deny whether the Broncos initiated the trade talks. The Broncos did, though, tell Cutler that every player on the team could be traded and he could be traded at any time. Still, Denver owner Pat Bowlen also stated in the conversation that Cutler will not be traded.
The Broncos publicly said Cutler will not be traded last week as the Cutler trade frenzy was in full force.
"Josh and Jay will sit down and meet next week when Jay gets back from Nashville. And then Smyth, who said he was speaking on behalf of owner Pat Bowlen and McDaniels, made the following point of emphasis: "The Denver Broncos are not trading, Jay Cutler. Period."
Thank god you cleared that up.
