3. Arizona Cardinals
This, again, is a sensible landing spot for Cutler if he’s willing to put his ego in the backseat. The Cardinals have an iffy starting quarterback with Carson Palmer. He’s 37-years old and regressed last season after his tremendous 2015 campaign.
If Palmer regresses again, the Cardinals would be wise to have a veteran QB behind him ready to take over if he struggles. Meanwhile, even though Palmer has only missed 1 game over the last 2 years, he has concrete feet, and could easily take a shot that would put him out for multiple games.
Bruce Arians was willing to come to Chicago to work with Cutler a few years ago, but the Bears messed up the interview and he ended up in Arizona. Arians is a great offensive mind and a marriage between him and Cutler makes a lot of sense. If they sign Cutler to a multiyear deal, the Cardinals are almost certainly ready to move on from Palmer after this season and Cutler would slide right in to a starting quarterback with a solid team around him.
