Cutler Opportunity Already Came And Went

Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports has a very interesting article in which a source tells him that the Vikings, not the Bucs, were the first team to make an offer to require Jay Cutler.

A source told Robinson that the Vikings were indeed the first team to inquire about Cutler, and that a trade had been in the works. The trade would have involved Minnesota giving picks to Denver, Denver giving Cutler to Minnesota, Denver sending picks to New England, and New England sending Matt Cassel to Denver.

He goes on by saying that the deal fell apart when certain members of Minnesota’s coaching staff weren’t “entirely sold on Cutler.”

And so we have it. At some point early on in the offseason, Minnesota had the opportunity to get Jay Cutler but bowed out of the running. It is fair to say that this should put an end to the Cutler-to-Minnesota speculation, though if Denver lowers their asking price due to the damage the situation is doing, then maybe they’ll jump back into the running.

The question then would be if Cutler would force his way off of a team that isn’t completely sold on him to join another team that isn’t completely sold on him. Doubtful… unless it’s one giant contract.

Detroit and Chicago are two other teams that have inquired about the possibility of obtaining Cutler.
