According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports,  the Chicago Bears,  will continue to wait until the offseason to sign quarterback Jay Cutler to a contract extension. Bears starting quarterback Jay Cutler is in the final year of the extension he signed in 2009 and has the team off to a 3-0 start. But there have been no contract talks so far in-season and the Bears have said they will table any negotiations until after the season. Agents for several of the team’s potential free agents said they expected the team to wait until January to try to retain those players. Cutler is open to getting a deal done now instead of waiting. With Cutler thriving in the new system installed by rookie head coach Marc Trestman, many have wondered if that might expedite contract talks, after a summer in which nothing really materialized. Cutler would be open to negotiations in-season, according to league sources, but neither side is pressing the issue and seem content to let this ride out. Cutler also have no problem with waiting until after this season to get something done. Cutler, who is making just under $9 million this season, is not turned off by the lack of movement on a new deal, sources said. Like Flacco last year, Cutler seems content to play out his contract and see what the future will bring. Need NFL Tickets? Loading...

For Cutler, it's all fundamental after Lions loss

Cutler hopes to rebound from bad game

The last time Jay Cutler tossed three or more interceptions in a game (Sept. 13 2012) the Chicago Bears ran off a string of six consecutive wins.

Jay Cutler Has Moxie And The Bears Know It

The Chicago Bears have had their share of quarterback carousels. They have not had a franchise quarterback since Sid Luckman, and he was spectacular.  Yes, it is true that in 1985 the Bears actually won a Super Bowl under QB Jim McMahon, and the assistance of Walter Payton, Mike Singletary and William “Refrigerator” Perry. And like all great quarterbacks they are not successful...

Quarter Season Crisis?

We’re 4 games into the season, the 1/4 point and the Bears are 3-1. All things are good in the windy city then, right? Not so fast. The Bears’ Week 4 loss to the Detroit Lions was only unique in that the Bears lost. But many of the mistakes the Bears made have been present all season long, they just finally went up against a decent opponent and didn’t catch any of the same...

Rough year so far for some top QBs

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer NFL quarterbacks can be broken into three groups: elite, good and ''can we find somebody else?'' That last group is growing considering what has gone on with the Buccaneers, Browns, Raiders and Jets already. Most troublesome, however, are the recent meltdowns by some quality passers who seem to take huge...
