Knowing that franchise quarterbacks do not grow on threes, the Chicago Bears asked themselves if Jay Culter could win a Super Bowl. The front office must feel that the 30-year-old can after signing him to a seven-year extension.
The new deal could keep Cutler in Chicago though 2020.
According to general manager Phil Emery the Bears like Cutler’s “leadership, his improvement, his display of toughness.” Emery said that Culter is “a demonstrated winner” and cited his ability to work with the teams coaching staff.
Foxsports.com’s Alex Marvez reports the first three years of Cutler’s deal average $18 million per season.
While Cutler could have been franchised for next season, his new deal will allow the Bears to keep their good cap situation in place and spread the value of his deal over multiple seasons.
BEST OF MAXIM
Well, it’s official, the Bears are happy being average. Oh, they faked us all out when they fired Lovie Smith and hired that Canadian fellow, Marc Trestman. They must not be okay with just competing, they want to have an offense that can win things! Or so we all thought. And then came the end of the the 2013 season and the expiration of Jay Cutler‘s contract.…The post Chicago...
Jay Cutler's new seven-year contract will not prevent the Chicago Bears from attempting to re-sign veteran unrestricted free agent quarterback Josh McCown, team general manager Phil Emery confirmed Thursday.
Because the team inked McCown to a one-year contract with the veteran league minimum last March, the Bears cannot officially sign the quarterback to a new deal until the...
The Chicago Bears appear to be noncommittal regarding the future of defensive end Julius Peppers, who led the team with 7.5 sacks in 2013, but didn’t perform at his typically dominant clip.
Set to count $18.183 million against the team’s cap in 2013, Peppers could be asked to restructure his deal to clear some space. But it’s worth noting that prior to announcing deals Thursday...
What a stupid contract. Are you kidding me?
Okay, that may be a harsh way to start this piece, but I was absolutely stunned when I heard that Jay Cutler had signed a seven-year contract with the Chicago Bears worth upwards of $17.6 million a year with at least $50 million guaranteed. Even the biggest Jay Cutler fan would look at a deal like that and think it was at least a bit of...
The Chicago Bears announced that they have re-signed G Matt Slauson to a four-year deal.
Slauson was a big part of a resurgent Bears offensive line that managed to reduce the number of sacks allowed from 41 in 2012, to 31 this season. The additions of Jermon Bushrod and rookie G Kyle Long also helped to shore up what was one of the worst offensive lines in the league.

Even though Bears defensive end Julius Peppers is under contract until 2015, he isn’t sure if he’ll be playing in Chicago next season since he’ll account for over $18 million of the Bears cap next season.

The last 7 days of football have been sheer insanity. On the latest Rob’s Midday Quickie I dish about the Bears signing Jay Cutler to a 7 year contract, my picks for the NFL Playoffs, how my heart was broken twice in about 10 minutes on Sunday with the Chargers and Bears endings, and give some dap to UCF for winning the Fiesta Bowl and showing Baylor what’s up.

According to Michael David Smith of Profootballtalk.com, the Chicago Bears and quarterback Jay Cutler have come to terms on a seven-year contract that will keep him in the Windy City for the foreseeable future. There was speculation Cutler would not return to the team, but with him in the fold the team now has the option of using their franchise tag for another player.
Details forthcoming, but as for now, Cutty remains the Windy City Sulker for the foreseeable future. Instead of the longstanding Bears M.O. of getting a new quarterback every few years, Chicago has made a long-term investment in the new franchise leader in passing yards, even if he’s had considerable problems staying healthy and beating the Packers.Cutler was about to hit the open...
