The Jets are believed to be one of ten teams in the hunt for Jay Cutler. And if you saw the Jets depth chart, you could understand why. For the Jets, Cutler makes perfect sense.
The team went for the old whiner last year, so the younger model would be a much bigger upgrade.
But what team wouldn't want Cutler? Try the Vikings. Turns out the Vikings had a deal going for Cutler, but backed off. Really? With Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson as your two quarterbacks, the Vikings decided that they didn't want Cutler.
The Cowboys aren't trading Tony Romo for Cutler, either. That's a shame. The NFL needs a good shakeup trade like that. But for now, the teams will carrying on with their high profile and playoff disappointing quarterbacks.
Also in the news, Tony Gonzalez may or may not be seeking a trade. Seriously does anybody in the AFC West want to play for their current team?
Sorry, Raiders players don't count.

AL DAVIS FINALLY SEEING HUMOR IN TUCK RULE
Al Davis was sitting in Dana Point on Wednesday, spinning yarns about the AFL. He also spent some time pimping a couple of his former players for the Hall of Fame -- Cliff Branch (no), Jim Plunkett (yes) and Tom Flores (yes). That's right, Plunkett and Flores should be in.
Davis even went on to ask, "What other quarterback has won two Super Bowls and isn't in the Hall of Fame?"
The answer: Tom Brady.
Here was Al's response: "He won the "Tuck Game," (expletive) him," Davis said, and the room erupted. "He did win it, the son of a (female dog)."
Still too soon, I guess.
And he's still sharp, Raiders fans ... get used to seeing him for a long time.
Also in Raiders news JaMarcus Russell showed up for voluntary workouts. As the NFL's largest quarterback in the wake of Jared Lorenzen's banishment from the league, maybe Russell shouldn't have already skipped a week of workouts. The dude isn't T.O., and he isn't going to be, how do we say it, diligent in is conditioning. If he ever wants to be a serious quarterback -- as Tom Cable said this week -- he needs to start taking this stuff seriously.
Duke loses, and the world seems good again. Now, Duke doesn't seem to be the power that it once was, drawing in the McDonald's All-America's -- or at least keeping them around. But as long as it says DUKE on the jersey, its losing is a wonderful thing.
And in these economic times where they don't report good news out of fear of not being able to jam us with spending bills, this Duke loss is wonderful.
