Could the Bears have the combo of Jay Cutler throwing to Brandon Marshall in the 2009 season? While it seems unlikely, reports are coming out that Cutler wants his former Bronco teammate with him, and today’s Newsport News Daily Press reports that Cutler was pushing hard for the team to get Marshall from Denver.
Jay Cutler’s recent addition to the Chicago Bears’ roster appears to have ended almost a decade of musical chairs at quarterback in the Windy City. But a receiving corps rated average at best begs the question of who will be on the other end of Cutler’s passes. An enticing solution could be wide receiver Brandon Marshall, Cutler’s former teammate in Denver.
The two connected for more than 100 completions with the Broncos each of the past two seasons. Like Cutler — traded by the Broncos to the Bears in April — Marshall wants Denver to trade him. The prospect that the Bears, who reportedly might be interested in Marshall, could bring the two Pro Bowlers back together seems to appeal to Cutler.
“He’s big and fast, and can do everything you want him to do, on the field and in the meeting room,” Cutler said. “I don’t know what we’re going to do. That’s up to the guys upstairs. If we make a run at him, we make a run at him.”
The Broncos have continued to say that they won’t trade Marshall, but if he’s out there, the Bears would love to do what they could to make a serious run at him.
