Denver Broncos coach Josh McDaniels says he wanted things to work out with quarterback Jay Cutler, but the feeling wasn't mutual.

In his first news conference in Denver since the rift developed more than a month ago, McDaniels said it became clear that the Broncos had no choice but to grant Cutler his trade request.

The Broncos sent the Pro Bowl passer and a fifth-round pick in the upcoming draft to the Chicago Bears on Thursday for two first-round picks, a third-rounder and quarterback Kyle Orton.

McDaniels said Orton will compete with Chris Simms for the starting job. He also didn't rule out taking a quarterback in the draft.
