Jay Cutler to Be Released by Bears

Jay Cutler to Be Released by Bears

The Bears released quarterback Jay Cutler on Thursday and he was immediately linked to the Jets.

After a few days of rumors and free agent period for the National Football League close to opening, multiple reports have the Bears coming to an agreement with former Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon. Silver tweeted that the Jets and 49ers do not have enough interest to keep Glennon from signing with the Bears.

Cutler is 68-71 in his career with the Broncos and Bears, with 208 touchdown passes and 146 interceptions.

He has a career 69 wins to 72 losses.

The Bears are also expected to sign safety Quintin Demps to a three-year, $13.5 million contract with $5 million coming in the first year, sources told ESPN's Adam Caplan. He completed 59% of his throws for 19 touchdowns against nine interceptions. He will turn 34 in April, but he has just $2 million in guaranteed money left on his contract, which technically runs through 2020. But injuries, inconsistent play and poor coaching plagued the Cutler era.

It's unclear what the structure of Glennon's deal is, so perhaps there are options for the Bears to move on if Glennon doesn't play well. It will free up $14 million under the cap for Chicago.

The Minnesota Vikings appear to have an excellent chance of getting involved in the free-agent market by adding to their defensive line. And since the 2015 season, has attempted a whopping 11 passes in the NFL.

To some fans' dismay, the Chicago Bears have a new starting quarterback. But in Cutler's case, the number somehow perfectly sums up his time with the Bears. He was constantly working with a variety of head coaches and offensive coordinators. The Bears were not only in the NFC Championship game, but they were in it against the Packers. If they bring in Cutler, it's an admission that they missed on quarterbacks year after year in the draft.

As for Glennon, while the reported cost to sign him sounds high, it's actually a reasonable rate for a starting quarterback.
