Jay Cutler – QB

How about we add a third quarterback to the competition this offseason? He’s already retired and come back to play once…why not make it a third time? Jay Cutler was never known as a personable guy. He would not be there to give you a hug when you are sad. He is likely going to be portrayed as a “bad guy”, but who cares as long as he can fling a football?

With news breaking about Cutler and his wife Kristin Cavallari going through a messy divorce, maybe returning to football is just what Cutler needs. Instead of taking on a broadcasting gig, why not return to the gridiron? He is only 37 years old and

Cutler is currently the Chicago Bears all-time passing leader. Many will claim this is not a big deal since the Bears quarterback history has been pretty awful, but he leads the second player (Sid Luckman) by nearly 9,000 yards. That said, maybe this number should be taken lightly since Brett Favre leads the Packers with nearly 40,000 more yards.

Bringing back Cutler would be interesting and exciting all at the same time. I would like to see him in a legit offense, although with the offensive line issues last season, we might see similar results as we did with Mitchell Trubisky. Truth be told, Trubisky has a better career completion percentage than Cutler. I do not care though, give me Cutler’s arm and the chaos of three quarterbacks battling it out for the starting gig this offseason.
