Jay Cutler Gets an Extension

According to Profootballtalk, the Bears have extended quarterback Jay Cutler’s contract through 2013, giving their first franchise quarterback in oh, 60 years $30 million in new money with $20 million guaranteed.

Kind of interesting in that they only extended the deal rather than signing him to a blockbuster new deal.  For quarterbacks those contracts are hovering around $90 million and up for players of Cutler’s caliber.

Nice to know we have him for more than just two more years.  Leave it to the Bears to do it in a financially unconventional way, of course.

  1. Hey whatever, just glad the Bears were able to clamp him down, he’s the real deal. I can’t believe some people talking about how the Bears got hosed on the Cutler/Orton+picks trade. I think both teams did well. Glad to see Orton doing well out there.

  2. Glad that they signed him. Despite all the hoopla about Matt Ryan being so great. Check this stat. In the last game…
    Both Cutler and Ryan had 2 TD passes and 2 interceptions.
    The only difference was the Cutler threw for 300 yards and Ryan threw for around half of that.
    The Bears should be happy that they finally got a QB.

    GO BEARS!!!!

  3. I think this might end up coming out great for him if their offense would just work a little harder.
