BREAKING - Cutler Dealt to Chicago

A team that has refused to find a star QB of late has just landed one. Reports on what exactly the Bears gave up are conflicting. John Clayton of ESPN says Denver sent Cutler and their 3rd round pick to Chicago for the Bears 1st rounders in 2009 and 2010 plus QB Kyle Orton. However, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports say Denver received Orton, the two first round picks, and Chicago's third round selection this year while the Bears got Cutler and Denver's fifth round pick. If Clayton got the trade right then it seems that Chicago made out nicely. If Glazer's report is right, Denver certainly wins.

I did have Chicago on my list of teams interested in Cutler but they were not one of my top destinations.

Thankfully I don't update my mock until Monday. I'll have this accounted for obviously. It'll shake things up!

UPDATE (5:57 PM) - ESPN has edited Clayton's original story. The report now agrees with Glazer. Chicago needs to have a stellar year or Denver won this deal. Two 1sts, a 3rd, and an established QB? Wow.

UPDATE (6:16 PM) - The Bears aren't done! They also agreed to terms with veteran free agent OT Orlando Pace.
