Cutler and his agent didn't think McDaniels was up front with them about the trade talks and asked to be dealt; McDaniels, however, insisted he informed Cutler the morning of those discussions.

Cutler stopped returning calls from the Broncos and they eventually dealt him in April.
In Chicago, there have been some rough moments despite the warm welcome from the fan base.
When he reported to training camp, Cutler and linebacker Brian Urlacher found themselves denying reports of a rift. Devin Hester was also offended by comments Cutler made after the first preseason game, when the receiver failed to break up an interception against Buffalo.
Otherwise, teammates and coaches have staunchly defended Cutler.
