Jay Cutler finally spoke about the drama surrounding his now-impending trade from the Denver Broncos, telling FoxSports.com in an exclusive interview, “I really didn’t want this. I love Denver. I really like my teammates. I didn’t want it to get this far.” Cutler, who was at UFC Fight Night in Nashville, said he was shocked that the Broncos issued a statement earlier this week saying he was going to be traded.

Broncos owner Pat Bowlen said in the statement that attempts to reach Cutler for 10 days were unsuccessful. Now Cutler tells FoxSports that he didn’t hear anything from the Broncos: “I didn’t want to get traded. This wasn’t me. [The Broncos] had been going back and forth saying things, wanting me to be their quarterback and then they didn’t.”
