Trades are a rare occurence in the NFL, so I'd guess that even that's unlikely, but there's no way he gets cut.
I too doubt he gets cut next year, but that's not the same as not getting real with a contract offer, so in effect it becomes a cut. They don't have to cut him. They will let him test the market, and if he gets much of an offer, I suspect they will let him walk. A trade for an injury prone backup RB? That's not happening.
