Jay Cutler wants to break up.
The Denver Broncos say they want to make up.
The Pro Bowl quarterback was a no-show yesterday for coach Josh McDaniels' first team meeting and the start of the Broncos' offseason workouts, and the Broncos confirmed that Cutler had requested a trade.
McDaniels declined interview requests after telling The Denver Post that he wanted to meet again with Cutler to try to resolve their differences before he considers a trade.
McDaniels briefly addressed his broiling quarterback controversy when he gathered his team as a group for the first time Monday. Defensive lineman Kenny Peterson says McDaniels told the team --quote-- "I'll take care of it."
Cutler is upset that the Broncos tried to trade him for New England quarterback Matt Cassel last month, and what Cutler considers McDaniels' misleading answers to inquiries about those discussions.
