There were some camps that thought the Chicago Bears wouldn’t re-sign quarterback Jay Cutler this offseason. Well, we can already put that notion to rest.
The Bears have signed Cutler for seven more seasons. Adam Schefter is saying the deal is worth north of $17 million per season.
In announcing the new contract, Bears General Manager Phil Emery called Cutler “a demonstrated winner” and said 2013 was his best season because of his “leadership, his improvement, his display of toughness.”
Demonstrated winner. Hahahahaha!
Cutler played in just 11 games in 2013 and he had a record of 5-6 in those games. He threw for 2,621 yards, 19 touchdowns and 12 picks.
And, ss you probably are well aware of, all of this is great news for the Green Bay Packers. Cutler has been awful against the Packers. Since joining the Bears, Cutler is 2-9 against Green Bay. He’s also thrown more picks in his career against the Packers than he has touchdowns.
So by our estimation, this is a fine move by the Bears.
