There has been speculation that the Chicago Bears are looking to move on from quarterback Jay Cutler. According to Paul Banks of the SportsBank.net, the two sides are headed towards a split.
“A source close to Mark Block, the head of both the Mark Block agency and the Jay Cutler Foundation told The Sports Bank this morning that the Chicago Bears are likely to move in a different direction.”
“I was also told this morning that the organization will likely move to retain Josh McCown and focus on rebuilding the defense in the NFL draft in May.”
Cutler has repeatedly expressed a desire to stay with the Bears organization and he has reiterated those desires now that the season is over.
“I think if you polled quarterbacks around the league, everyone’s going to want to come here,” Cutler said, via the Chicago Tribune. “Why wouldn’t you want to play here? We’ve got a lot of guys who can make some plays. It would be fun to stay here. Obviously I want to stay here.”
Cutler is right, with wide receivers like Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, who wouldn’t want to be quarterback for the Bears.
