According to Ian Rapoport on Twitter, Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery said Wednesday that the team will not sign any players to extensions during the 2013 season.
This does include starting quarterback Jay Cutler and defensive tackle Henry Melton. Cutler publicly said that he wants to do and will bet on himself and go the Joe Flacco route.
Which probably means he’s looking forward to having a good season and possibly winning the Super Bowl to get the extension he could be looking for. But would Cutler make the money that Flacco does under his new contract? Everybody has criticized the Chicago Bears starting quarterback over the recent years. Calling him a quitter, or he doesn’t have what it takes to lead the Bears to a Super Bowl championship.
The organization and it’s fans are hoping for a big season under new head coach Marc Trestman’s offense. Trestman has proven to be an outstanding quarterback manager and manipulator.
This team along with Jay Cutler will always have their critics. So you have to know that the Chicago Bears are going into training camp with those voices in their heads telling them that ‘They don’t have what it takes’. Which could really turn this group who are dubbed the ‘Monsters of the Midway’ into real monsters on the field.
#Bears GM Phil Emery told reporters no contract extensions this season. So, Jay Cutler can spend the entire season playing for his deal
