    Like Jay Cutler -- traded by the Broncos to the Bears in April -- Brandon 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. "I talked to 'B' a few days ago," Cutler said during an appearance Monday at William and Mary's Colonial All-Pro Football Camp. "Just cfreaking in on him and seeing how he's doing, because I went through a similar thing that he's going through. I played with Brandon for three years and I think he's one of the best receivers in the NFL. I think he can be one of the greatest ever to play. He's big and fast, and can do everything you want him to do, on the field and in the meeting room. 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."

    This would be a great fit for the Bears...but do the Bears have the draft picks to get him...

    Would they consider sending Hester and a pick to Denver for Marshall?

    It's hard to say what Marshall is really worth and that's what makes any deal involving him tricky...

    I would trade hester he wasent as great last year with returns and hes a below average receiver. What pick would it be?

    That trade would turn the Bears into the Broncos, but with a better defense.

    Devin Hester isnt going anywhere. And the Bears have the 2nd round and below to offer in a trade. Yea, Hester had a bad year returning the ball last year, and a below average year statistically as a receiver, but he made strides the last month of the season and with a real QB like Cutler back there, he should be getting better and better.

    I still dont think he is a number one receiver, nor do I think he ever will be, but I think he can be a solid number two and a great deep threat with the right QB. Just got done watching the NFL Replay of the Bears/Saints Thursday night game and Orton missed a chance in overtime to end the game, but he underthrew Hester after he had blown by a double team and was wide open. Thankfully Hester drew a pass interference penalty, but he had three steps on his defender and could have scored easily.

    This is the advantage Cutler will bring to the Bears. He will not miss Hester when he is open like that. And getting a guy like Hester would enhance Hester's ability, that's why he wouldnt be part of a trade discussion.

    I can see that duo being the end of Love Smith - 'We gave him all that to work with, he must be the reason we didn't win!'
    Plus I don't know how much tow Cutler has with the brass of the team - not for any particular reason - but I doubt this will happen.

    Cutler and Marshall were the Broncos offense last year. Consider they had like 312 RB's in IR by season's end.

    Don't forget Eddie Royal.

    The chances of this trade happening are slim anyway.

    I think Denver would be loking for a #2 and a guy like Hester at least...I'm not sure they'll get it but thats at least what they'd want IMO

    If thats what the Broncos would want, i'd do it. Call me crazy but to get a little, you have to give a little.

    Marshall is worth more but he's such a head case I'm not sure what teams will give up

    Yeah, thats my only concern about Marshall, how many times he's been arrested.
