Broncos coach: Cutler is our QB -- 'Period'



Denver coach Josh McDaniels said Jay Cutler is the Broncos quarterback.


Appearing on NFL Network Monday from the league's annual meeting in Dana Point, Calif., McDaniels says he is hoping for a face-to-face meeting with Cutler, who has asked to be traded.

"He's our quarterback, period,'' McDaniels said.

"We can't predict the future. He's our quarterback, we want him to be our quarterback, we made that very clear to him and we hope he feels the same way.

"It's just a situation that came up. I think there are some things out there that are not necessarily true and there are some other things that are definitely true. We have to work through those things and make sure that the lines of communication stay open. I think that's the biggest thing in terms of getting over any kind of an issue that a player may have with an organization or a coach.

"We haven’t held anything back. I think the big thing is that we need to continue to communicate and I’d love to have the opportunity to continue to meet with Cutler face-to-face. I think that’s the best type of communication at this point to try to work toward a resolution.''
