While it’s well known that the Jets have interest in trading for Jay Cutler, just how far they are willing to go to land the Broncos’ QB is open to speculation.
The Newark Star-Ledger‘s Paul Needell says inquiries made by the newspaper to Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum — specifically asking about the team’s level of interest in Cutler and if players such as CB Darrelle Revis and LB Mike Harris would be on the table in a potential deal — were rebuffed. Needell writes:
This response just came in from a team spokesman: “As you can probably appreciate, I have received questions throughout the day. Mike has asked me to decline comment.”
Translation: The Jets are interested in Cutler but are a long way from knowing if they can be considered a frontrunner in the bidding. As we’ve noted before, as many as 10 teams could be in the running, including the Detroit Lions, Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins.
