The Chicago Bears are expected to possibly trade quarterback Jay Cutler after the season, and multiple teams are interested in pursuing him.
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler signed a seven-year, $126 million contract in the latest offseason, but the Bears are likely regretting this move now.
The Bears have a 3-6 record and are coming off a brutal blowout loss to the Green Bay Packers, and Cutler has not performed up to his contract.
Cutler’s contract includes $54 million in guaranteed money, but the Bears may be able to find a way to get rid of him if they want. The Bears are expected to possibly trade him after the season, and they may save $12.5 million in salary cap money.
Here is a tweet from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reporting on the Bears quarterback’s status.
Bears could trade Jay Cutler after this season and actually save $12.5 million against their cap. Other teams will have interest in Cutler.
