Chicago fans, get ready.

Your franchises' first competent QB in nearly two decades is coming to the Bears.

NFL.com reported that the disgruntled Broncos quarterback has been traded to the Chicago Bears. The Bears have apparently sent Kyle Orton and two first round picks for Cutler. The Bears have received a fifth round pick.

I'll continue to update this page as more information becomes avaliable.

Cutler's whirlwind drama with the Broncos stemmed from reports that new head coach Josh McDaniels attempted to deal him away for Patriots' quarterback Matt Cassel. After weeks of meetings, missed calls, and overall miscommunication, the saga has finally ended with Cutler being traded to the Bears.

But questions still remain. How will the Broncos spend their draft picks? Will Kyle Orton start in Denver? Could the Broncos still sign another QB? How will Cutler fare in Chicago? Who got the better end of the deal?

The answer to these questions, likely won't become apparent for a while.
