Here are some random facts about the Jay Cutler trade from Denver to Chicago:

Reunited: Cutler will now play with former Vanderbilt teammates, receiver Earl Bennett and left tackle Chris Williams. Cutler is close friends with both and Cutler actually threw to Bennett at his Pro Day.

Family ties: Cutler's family and Cutler, himself, rooted for the Bears growing up. They are from the Midwest.

Soldier Field experience: Cutler is 0-1 in Chicago as a Denver Bronco and lost a wild overtime game in 2007 in a game in which Devin Hester had two returns for scores. Cutler played well, though, as he tossed for more than 300 yards.

NFC North record: Cutler and the Broncos were 1-3 against his new division in 2007. They only beat Minnesota.

When will Denver and Chicago next meet: 2011.
