  Bears | Jay Cutler praised by head coach    Fri Jul 18, 02:59 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has impressed head coach Marc Trestman with how intelligent and selfless he's been to better the team. Trestman also said he's been impressed with Cutler's skillset and football smarts.

Footballguys view: Trestman and the Bears certainly believe in Cutler. They wouldn't have committed to a seven-year $126.7 million contract earlier this year. He's more comfortable in the second year of the Trestman offense, and that should lead to better production on the field.

  Bears | Jay Cutler more experienced in Marc Trestman's offense    Fri Jul 11, 03:38 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler believes he's more familiar with second-year head coach Marc Trestman's offense. Cutler said he should be able to think less and play faster now that he's become more acquainted with concepts and formations.

Footballguys view: We believe in Trestman's offense, and the Bears certainly are committed to Cutler. We'll see if Cutler can stay healthy and flourish in 2014. His current ADP is QB13 (9.08) in 12-team PPR leagues. It's not out of the question to think that Cutler could finish the year as a top-10 fantasy quarterback.

  Bears | Jay Cutler cleans up fundamentals     Sun Jun 29, 10:33 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has made tremendous strides cleaning up his fundamentals this offseason, according to quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh. 'I've seen incredible progress,' Cavanaugh said. 'When we got in here last year & evaluated him we had a real good conversation with him about certain things that every quarterback should do. We said, 'Jay it might not be natural, but we want you to try it.' And he did"

Footballguys view: We've seen the Bears and head coach Marc Trestman stand up for Cutler with a new contract. It's good to see Cutler reciprocating their support with something he's needed to do since he came into the league. Cutler has a rocket arm, but his fundamentals have always been lacking. We'll see if that changes this year as Cutler could flourish in Trestman's system with quality weapons like Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennet and Matt Forte.

  Bears | Jay Cutler bigger and stronger    Tue Jun 10, 01:57 PM

Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said QB Jay Cutler has made his durability a priority this offseason, and the quarterback has become bigger and stronger as a result. 'He's bigger, he's stronger than a year ago, and he has really focused on staying physically well for the entire season. That's No. 1 -- we've got to keep him standing, keep him safe. And we see the improvements he's made in working on different issues in his mechanics, and I think he's feeling very comfortable back there in Year 2,' Trestman said.

Footballguys view: In year two of the Trestman system, Cutler should be able to perform better. He looked good before his injury last year, and we'll see if he can at least pick up where he left off. Cutler's added size should help his durability. His current ADP is QB14 (10.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bears | Jay Cutler restructures    Thu Mar 27, 04:02 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler restructured his deal Thursday, March 27, to free up $4 million in salary cap space.

Footballguys view: That was quick, but Cutler is no dummy. He knows the defense needs to get better if he is to have a shot at a championship. For all the grief he gets about his attitude, this is a "team first" move.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall hosting WRs at facility    Sat Mar 1, 11:47 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall is training with WR Alshon Jeffery and WR Marquess Wilson as his FitSpeed Athletic Performance training center in Florida. QB Jay Cutler is expected to join the trio next week.

Footballguys view: It's great to see Marshall take on this leadership role with his team. Jeffery could continue to get better and better as a pro. Wilson is an interesting name to monitor in super deep dynasty leagues. He's got incredible speed and can attack the defense vertically.

  Bears | Former GM says Jay Cutler isn't clutch    Tue Feb 11, 07:10 PM

Former Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo, the GM that pulled off the trade to acquire QB Jay Cutler in 2009, said Cutler has all the tools except for the fact that he isn't clutch. 'Has all the physical tools, but inconsistent in the clutch,' Angelo wrote. 'Mostly due to a lack of poise. He's not comfortable reading defenses and consequently locks onto a favorite or pre-determined target, that may or may not be the right choice. The less he's asked to see the better he is. A better half field general, than a full field one.'

Footballguys view: So Angelo is just stating what some NFL fans believe. Cutler has to prove himself constantly, and the Bears are hoping he can stay healthy to play up to his potential in 2014.

  Bears | More on Jay Cutler deal    Thu Jan 2, 01:12 PM

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's new deal with the team is expected to eclipse the $17.6 million Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford signed last off season. The deal also includes $50 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: It's a reasonable deal for Cutler, despite the high price tag. The Bears' offense is a "win now" proposition and while some fans think McCown could do what Cutler can, it's important to note that McCown looked good against some awful defenses. Cutler is worth the price.

  Bears | Jay Cutler re-signs    Thu Jan 2, 10:36 AM

The Chicago Bears re-signed QB Jay Cutler to a seven-year deal. Terms have not been disclosed.

Footballguys view: We thought the Bears might try to keep Jay Cutler at home and knew he might get a little more money and/or years due to the lack of viable starting quarterbacks entering free agency but WOWSERS. Seven years, even not fully guaranteed, is a long term commitment (even if we know it's not really seven years). On the other hand, with the offense locked down around Cutler, the Bears can now focus on defense, which was the real issue this season.

  Bears | Jay Cutler unsure of future in Chicago    Tue Dec 31, 06:30 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler said Tuesday, Dec. 31, in a radio interview that his representation and the club will try and work on a new deal so he can remain with the team, but he is still uncertain about his future in Chicago. 'We'll find equal ground. We'll get it worked out,' Cutler said. 'I don't know when it's going to happen. And eventually it might not happen. But we're going to take a crack at it, I'm sure.'

  Bears | Jay Cutler confident he'll stay    Tue Dec 31, 11:58 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is confident that he'll reach an agreement with the team on a multi-year contract before the start of the 2014 NFL league year March 11. 'I'm confident in our ability (to get a deal done), and (in Bears general manager) Phil (Emery) and (team Chairman) George (McCaskey) and everyone over there that we'll find equal ground and get it worked out,' Cutler said. 'I don't know when it's going to happen, and eventually, it might not happen. But we're going to take a crack at it for sure.'

Footballguys view: This seems to be the best outcome for Cutler and the Bears alike. Josh McCown isn't sure if he is still going to play football, and quarterbacks are too hard to come by to let a good one go because he might be overpriced. Every quarterback is overpriced once they hit the market.

  Bears | Jay Cutler to start    Mon Dec 23, 08:11 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler was reconfirmed the starter for Week 17 against the Green Bay Packers.

  Bears | Franchise tag an option for Jay Cutler    Sat Dec 21, 09:58 PM

Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery said the team has not ruled out the possibility of placing the franchise tag on QB Jay Cutler in the offseason.

Footballguys view: Emery had originally discussed the franchise tag not being the best option. That's what he reiterated here. It will be interesting to see if the Bears let Cutler hit free agency this offseason.

  Bears | Jay Cutler not feeling pressure    Fri Dec 20, 02:56 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler said he's not feeling pressure heading into the team's Week 16 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. 'No, I feel pretty good,' Cutler said. 'I feel kind of at ease. We've got a real good plan this week I think. The guys on offense are playing at about as high of a level as I think you could play around me, so it makes it easy for me. Just find the open guy.'

  Bears | Jay Cutler gets win in return    Sun Dec 15, 05:46 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle) completed 22 of his 31 pass attempts for 265 yards for three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also tested his ankle by running three times for 11 yards.

Footballguys view: Cutler took a few risks with the ball that backfired, but he was still an aggressive field general and kept the Bears offense very dangerous on downfield passes. He'll be a strong QB1 start against an Eagles defense that Matt Cassel just lit up.

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

Footballguys view: It looks like Cutler is ready to go and we expect him to put together QB2 numbers. Keep in mind that last time he came back too soon and ended up hurt--there is certainly an element of that risk in this game as well though we expect him to gut through it.

  Bears | Jay Cutler to start    Thu Dec 12, 02:19 PM

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle) will start in the team's Week 15 game.

Footballguys view: What a sudden turn of events! There's an element of gamble here as Josh McCown was feasting on porous defenses and the Cleveland Browns, while inconsistent, are probably the best passing defense the Bears have seen in some time. Cutler should produce in the range of QB2, but there is always the possibility that he has once again returned too quickly and could leave the game early, so be cautious.

  Bears | Likely will let Jay Cutler hit market    Wed Dec 11, 04:17 PM

The Chicago Bears likely will allow QB Jay Cutler to hit the free-agent market this offseason unless he is willing to accept a team-friendly contract.

Footballguys view: An interesting move if it happens. Some QB-needy team may make a big run at Cutler if he's on the open market. The Bears may look to add a rookie in the 2014 NFL draft. This year's quarterback class has a few quality players who could be first-round picks in the draft.

  Bears | Plan to put Jay Cutler through full workout    Wed Dec 11, 02:30 PM

The Chicago Bears plan to put QB Jay Cutler (ankle) through a full-speed workout Wednesday, Dec. 11, before making a decision on whether he will start over QB Josh McCown in Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns. 'We'll have receivers there afterwards. We'll work him through drops, redirect him in the pocket, move him up and down and get as much suddenness out of him as we can,' head coach Marc Trestman said. 'He's gone through the first steps (of being cleared to play) other than this workout. He's been cleared from a standpoint of allowing us to work him at full speed.'

Footballguys view: Cutler is still the starter even though McCown has been playing well as his replacement. The team has no need to rush Cutler back before he's healthy. We should know more about his playing status after this workout.

Footballguys view: The team has not needed to rush Cutler back with the way that Josh McCown has been playing. When he's healthy and ready to play then he will be the starter. That has been clear from day one.

  Bears | Josh McCown tosses four TDs    Mon Dec 9, 11:53 PM

Chicago Bears QB Josh McCown threw a career-high four touchdown passes in the Week 14 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Dec. 9. He is now 2-0 on Monday Night Football this season, and he has 11 touchdowns and just one interception in place of the injured QB Jay Cutler.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners who trusted McCown were over the moon on Monday night. McCown had a fantastic game, and he likely led some teams into the second round of the fantasy playoffs. Cutler may be back soon, but so long as McCown is in the Bears offense will be more than fine.

The Chicago Bears are hoping QB Jay Cutler (ankle) will be able to play in their Week 15 game.

Footballguys view: "Get your popcorn ready, cause it's gonna be a show!" The buzz has been that head coach Marc Trestman isn't enamored of Cutler and the play of Josh McCown has made J-Cutty seem a bit superfluous. Cutler wants to play because he needs a new contract but the franchise may not see it that way. Cleveland is a great matchup so this is news to watch.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle) will 'absolutely' play when he's cleared to play in games, according to head coach Marc Trestman. The team is hoping he can return next week or the week after.

Footballguys view: Cutler may be pretty anxious to play and show himself off to potential teams as it appears as if his time may be up in Chicago--or at least he needs to prove himself worthy of money from his current team. Keep him around if you have room but understand he may not play.

  Bears | Jay Cutler ruled out    Thu Dec 5, 03:45 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle) has been ruled out of the team's Week 14 game.

Footballguys view: The Bears are humming along just fine with Josh McCown--which makes the offseason intriguing as Cutler becomes a free agent. McCown is an OK start this week, outside the top ten in fantasy quarterbacks, more of a QB2. Avoid him unless you're in a 14 or 16 team league or you need to start two quarterbacks.

  Bears | Don't want to use franchise tag on Jay Cutler    Wed Dec 4, 09:02 AM

Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery said the team doesn't want to use the franchise tag on QB Jay Cutler. 'With the franchise tag being so high for the quarterback position, to use it and not sign the individual to a long-term deal hurts the team because you lose the ability to prorate the amount of guaranteed salary over the length of the contract,' Emery said.

Footballguys view: The Bears have a problem on their hands. Cutler is in the final year of his contract, but has been hurt for much of this season. The team may not be able to find a price they're comfortable paying Cutler before he hits free agency. We'll see if the two sides can figure something out, but at this time it sounds like the franchise tag would be a last-ditch option.

  Bears | Jay Cutler week-to-week    Tue Dec 3, 05:49 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle) said he's been feeling better, but head coach Marc Trestman is still referring to him as 'week-to-week.' Cutler was hoping to return in Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys. 'Getting better,' Cutler said. 'Still got to talk to the doctors, gotta go through some stuff this week. I don't know. I think if we're gonna have any shot at playing, I'm gonna have to practice (this week). I still feel like I'm gonna get back here really soon. I want to play. It's just the trainers and doctors and going through the scenario we've got to go through.' Cutler said he ran on a treadmill and felt fine Monday, Dec. 2.

Footballguys view: Cutler is getting close to returning to the field. The team won't rush him back because backup quarterback Josh McCown is playing well. Watch the injury report this week to see if Cutler can play in Week 14.

  Bears | Jay Cutler OK with franchise tag    Tue Nov 26, 11:04 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler wouldn't be upset if the team opts to use the franchise tag on him next season. The franchise tag for quarterbacks is expected to pay around $16.2 million for the 2014 season.

Footballguys view: The Bears didn't learn that much from Cutler this year because of his injury problems. They've seen him work well in the Marc Trestman system, but it's probably not enough to sign him to a long-term deal. 2013 was supposed to give the Bears answers about whether or not Cutler would work in this system and be worth the type of money it's going to take to keep him around.
