It’s only a matter of time until the Chicago Bears release Jay Cutler and make him a free agent. Here are ten teams that could end up with his services.
It’s seems to be a consensus that the Chicago Bears will send Jay Cutler packing this offseason. Obviously the Bears are going to want to trade their quarterback to receive some sort of compensation, but with the market the way it is and Cutler’s price tag at $16 million, odds are the Bears will end up releasing him.
If that happens, Cutler will hit the open market with a chance to sign where he chooses. That is of course, if the feeling is mutual with said team. There will certainly be a market for Cutler, but the question is, what type of market will there be for him to start? Most teams that need a quarterback aren’t very good, so they will try to find a young QB for the future. Teams that are ready to compete for a playoff spot, may not want to give the keys to the car to Cutler who has never proven he can win consistently. That means Cutler may end up with a team that didn’t land their primary choice at QB and are going with a short-term solution, or you might see a better team give Cutler an opportunity to back up and be an excellent piece of insurance for a good football team.
Some teams, like the New York Jets, have already said they have zero interest in Cutler, so for the sake of this article, we will take their word for it. Which teams will give Cutler a chance? Here are ten teams that might sign the Bears quarterback.
