(Newser) – The Jay Cutler soap opera is over. The Broncos have agreed to trade the disgruntled quarterback to the Chicago Bears. Denver will reportedly get two first-round draft picks, a third-rounder, and quarterback Kyle Orton in return for Cutler and a fifth-round draft pick. Cutler asked for a trade last month after he learned that new coach Josh McDaniels wanted to bring aboard Patriots castoff Matt Cassel.
