However, Cutler faces an uncertain future of his own.
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has praised general manager Phil Emery after his work in the free agency market, after the franchise added two key components to the roster.
The Bears have agreed terms with two-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jermon Bushrod, as well as signing up play-making tight end Martellus Bennett.
Bushrod, 28, helped the New Orleans Saints to a Super Bowl triumph back in 2009, and proved to be a durable part of the team having played in all 16 games of a regular season for the past three years.
Meanwhile Bennett, 26, set career highs in all receiving categories last season with the New York Giants, catching 55 passes for 626 yards and five touchdowns.
“Obviously they were being very proactive. They had some guys targeted and we didn’t waste any time. Any time you add the calibre of players that we’re adding to the offense, it’s definitely going to help,” Cutler told ChicagoBears.com.
“We’re addressing some needs offensively. We’re definitely adding guys with real value who are going to help not only this offense but the whole team in general,” he added.
However, while Cutler remains optimistic about the season ahead with the reinforcements arriving, he faces an uncertain future of his own as he enters the final year of his deal.
While the Bears continue to add new players to the roster, the 29-year-old maintains that he is happy in Chicago and would like to extend his contract, but doesn’t expect talks in the near future.
“We’re upgrading in certain positions and I don’t think we’re really in a position to do my deal. But like I said, Phil Emery has a plan worked out, so we’ll just have to see what happens. I want to stay here, I love the situation I’m in,” he said on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000.
With Coach Marc Trestman putting together the pieces for his first season in charge of the Bears, Cutler is excited about the season ahead and is happy to put contract talks on hold until the end of what he hopes will be a successful year.
