The Denver Broncos have agreed to trade disgruntled quarterback Jay Cutler to the Chicago Bears.

Cutler was traded for Kyle Orton, a No. 3 draft pick this year, and No. 1 draft picks in '09 and '10, the Sun-Times reported.

The Broncos were trading Cutler on his terms and there was no shortage of teams lining up to take a crack at acquiring the 25-year-old Pro Bowl passer.

Cutler had asked for a trade last month after his relationship with new coach Josh McDaniels soured. McDaniels had talked to other teams about trading his rocket-armed passer.
