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.
