ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - New Denver Broncos coach Josh McDaniels and Pro Bowl quarterback Jay Cutler talked this week for the first time since their rift became public.
Cutler spoke with McDaniels on Monday in a conference call, but the team would not say what was discussed.
The Denver Post's Web site reported Tuesday night that the call only muddied the waters between McDaniels and Cutler, who left the conversation feeling he would be traded by draft day if the Broncos could find the right deal .
A team official with knowledge of the discussions, however, told The Associated Press that despite what other sources may be saying, the two sides did not grow farther apart in this conversation.
