McDaniels, 32, was hired in January, and the Broncos promoted Brian Xanders, 37, to general manager last month. Both of them report directly to owner Pat Bowlen, who hasn't publicly addressed the rift between his new coach and his temperamental quarterback.
The Broncos are also dealing with another major headache following Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall's fourth arrest in three years. Marshall was arrested Sunday after getting into a fight with his new fiance.
The disorderly conduct charge was quickly dropped in at Atlanta court when he and his fiance refused to testify against each other, but Marshall still faces discipline from the NFL for repeated violations of the league's personal conduct code.
Cutler and Marshall, fellow members of the Broncos' dazzling 2006 draft class, are the faces of the franchise and the two biggest talents McDaniels inherited.
