  What will it take to win the Jay Cutler sweepstakes?

The Broncos have announced to the football world they will pursue trading Cutler. Several teams are expected to make offers. Here is a look at what it might take to get Cutler:

Carolina Panthers: It's a very long shot because a move like this would be out of character for John Fox and Marty Hurney. But they could package disgruntled defensive end Julius Peppers with a draft pick for a shot at Cutler. -- Pat Yasinskas

Chicago Bears: The No. 18 and No. 84 overall picks, cornerback Nathan Vasher and quarterback Kyle Orton. The Bears could get this done without including a third team. -- Kevin Seifert

Cleveland Browns: The Broncos would need either quarterback Brady Quinn or Derek Anderson in any type of package that could require a three-team trade and draft picks for the Browns. Pro Bowl defensive tackle Shaun Rogers would be a tremendous sweetener, but Cleveland probably is not that desperate when everyone knows Denver must get rid of Cutler. -- James Walker

Detroit Lions: The No. 1, No. 33 and No. 82 overall picks. Plus, a third team to get Denver a quarterback to replace Cutler. The Lions aren't likely to be willing any players considering their personnel shortcomings. -- Kevin Seifert

Minnesota Vikings: Their No. 22 and No. 54 overall picks, tailback Chester Taylor or defensive end Ray Edwards, and a third team to help Denver get a quarterback in return. Edwards might appeal to the Broncos more than Taylor, who has low mileage but will turn 30 in September. -- Kevin Seifert

New York Jets: They might need help from a third team to swing a deal for Cutler, especially if the Broncos require a seasoned quarterback in return. The Jets have only six draft picks, including the 17th
overall pick. Another possibility could include future draft considerations, such as next year's first-rounder. -- Tim Graham

San Francisco 49ers: I don't know if the Broncos would do it for the 10th overall choice, given that Denver probably wants a quarterback in return. But that is what the 49ers have to offer. -- Mike Sando

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: The Bucs don't have a lot of ammo after trading away a second-round pick for Kellen Winslow. They might have to package this year's first with next year's to have any shot. -- Pat Yasinskas

Washington Redskins: It would take Jason Campbell and the No. 13 overall pick to get in the conversation. And it certainly sounds like the conversation has begun. At this time Wednesday I didn't think it would happen. Now I'm not so sure. -- Matt Mosley
