News & Notes: Cutler headed to Redskins?


Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

It is being reported in Washington, that the Redskins are trying to get Jay Cutler in a three-way deal. Interestingly, the report suggests the third team could be Kansas City.

Who would be involved? Matt Cassel perhaps? Who knows? Let's see if there are any legs to this report before getting too excited.

There were indications around the league Tuesday that Denver is still not ready to take calls about Cutler, even though he has gone public with his trade request. Meanwhile, the Washington Times is reporting the Redskins are responding to rumors linking them to Cutler by saying Jason Campbell will remain the team's quarterback. With a player of Cutler's caliber in the spotlight, expect several of these types of developments around the league.

The San Diego Union Tribune has the breakdown of LaDainian Tomlinson's' restructured contract that keeps him in San Diego. From first glance it looks like a fair deal for everyone.

Al Davis and Lane Kiffin met face-to-face Tuesday as Kiffin chose to attend Davis' hearing with Kiffin's lawyers. I'm sure there was no St. Patrick's Day cheer involved. The mere fact that Kiffin opted to attend a second day of depositions (it was his turn Monday) shows how much he wants to stick it to Davis. The result of the grievance, in which Kiffin is seeking contract money, is expected in June.

The Lions are visiting with B.J. Raji who could be a candidate for the No. 1 pick. The Lions are also interested in Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry. This is of interest to Kansas City which has the No. 3 pick and an eye on Curry.

Defensive end Tyson Jackson had an average day at LSU's pro day. Denver and San Diego could have interest in him.

Meanwhile, it was reported that Denver tight end Tony Scheffler would skip a team meeting Monday. He was there. Scheffler has been subject of trade rumors along with Cutler.
