The Final Cutler Post

Jay Cutler has landed with the Chicago Bears, who gave up a startling amount in the trade - Kyle Orton, a first and third round pick in this year's Draft AND a first round pick in 2010. As one player I spoke to last night said, "They gave up WAY too much."

However, the good news is that the Jets can now move on from that potential drama and start focusing fully on the Draft.

I'm sure Kellen Clemens, and to a lesser degree Brett Ratliff, both breathed a sigh of relief last night when word broke. Both players, have handled the situation well, giving the usual platitudes that they can only control what they can control, but you could tell that for Clemens especially, it was deja vu all over again.

Of course, if/when the Jets draft a quarterback in three weeks all the chatter will begin anew.
