The drama between QB Jay Cutler and the Denver Broncos still isn’t settled, though it might reach a breaking point Monday.
The rift, dubbed McJaygate in Denver, began when the Broncos entertained the idea of dealing Cutler in an attempt to acquire Matt Cassel from New England, but he eventually was dealt to Kansas City. Coach Josh McDaniels and the Broncos’ brass talked with Cutler last Monday to get everyone on the same page, though Cutler still wasn’t satisfied after the meeting.
Perhaps in a sign of things to come, Cutler put his suburban Denver home up for sale Thursday. His four-bedroom, 7,516-square-foot home in Castle Pines was selling for $2 million, though Cutler also has a condo in downtown Denver.
The Broncos begin their voluntary offseason workouts on Monday, and the team expects Cutler to be there. A Denver Post report shed some light on the Cutler controversy:
- A source close to Cutler said he most likely will attend McDaniels’ first team meeting Monday and that the quarterback has considered selling his home for more than a year.
