During his weekly appearance on The Jay Cutler Show, Chicago bears quarterback Jay Cutler indicated that he’d be willing to take a pay cut to stay in Chicago.
“I’m not gonna try to break the bank,” Cutler said.

“I want to be on a successful team, and I know that paying one or two or three players premium (salaries) hurts your chances of being able to bring in extra talent,” Cutler said. “So when we get there, we’ll figure it out.”

I like making people laugh, and one of my favorite means of doing that is through satire. Satire is a lot of fun because, if done right, you can get people to not even realize they’re being duped. I love that.
