Cutler might not show in Denver until June 12

The unfolding drama between Jay Cutler and the Broncos could be poised to stretch into June, leading the Denver soap opera to evolve into a “Will he or won’t he?” scenario that would rival your typical Gossip Girl story arch.

That’s because, as the Denver Post reports, the Broncos’ April 17 minicamp isn’t mandatory as first believed. The feeling was that Cutler would force the Broncos’ hand by either showing up at or missing the April camp. Now the paper says that if Cutler skips the pre-draft workout, he wouldn’t be violating his contract.

The Broncos will hold a mandatory minicamp June 12-14.

The Cutler drama isn’t limited to only Denver, as it continues to send a ripple effect throughout the NFL:

  • An Internet report says the Bears have contacted the Broncos about Cutler. Bears general manager Jerry Angelo won’t tip his hand, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The paper believes the Bears are doing their “due diligence,” which isn’t a surprise seeing that they have gone through 11 starting quarterbacks in Angelo’s eight years at the helm.
  • The Charlotte Observer reports that the Panthers are talking to Jake Delhomme about signing a contract extension. That would seem to kill any Cutler-for-Julius Peppers talk.
