Entering the final season of a five-year contract worth $49.7 million, embattled quarterback Jay Cutler isn’t expecting the Chicago Bears to offer an extension.
The 6-foot-3, 220 pound Cutler, who the Denver Broncos took out of Vanderbilt University with the 11th pick in the 2006 draft, has thrown 136 touchdowns, against 100 interceptions, for 21,316 yards in 93 starts.
“You’ve got to win games to earn those contracts,” said the nearly 30-year-old Cutler, who Denver acquired in an April 2009 trade with the Bears. “So we’ll play it out and see how it goes.”
Speculation persists that Chicago is going to select a passer in this month’s draft to replace Kristin Cavallari’s banging companion.
A notorious joystick loathed by many teammates, fans and members of the media, Cutler lacks the crucial leadership abilities to truly excel as a field general.
Hence, to capture their first Vince Lombardi Trophy since 1985, the Bears are right to look elsewhere for a more team-oriented player.
Although the native of Santa Claus is extremely talented and blessed with a rifle for an arm, it will be a miracle if Cutler ever matures into a winner.
Unable “to win games to earn those contracts,” Jay Cutler will soon be blown away from “The Windy City.”by
