Bears And QB Jay Cutler Have Yet To Discuss A New Deal
While whispers exist about the Chicago Bears inching closer to a new contract for quarterback Jay Cutler, the reality is it's not yet time for that, and Tuesday a source close to Cutler indicated as much, Michael C. Wright of ESPNChicago reports.
With Cutler's current contract running through the 2013 season, it's likely the team won't address prospects for a new deal in earnest -- provided he performs -- until sometime in the offseason, which would prevent him from going into his final season as a lame duck.
The source close to the quarterback said the sides haven't even yet broached the topic of a new contract, which shouldn't come as a surprise considering Cutler has two years -- counting 2012 – remaining on the deal.
Bears general manager Phil Emery discussed the situation on Aug. 14, and pointed to the team's policy of declining to discuss contracts.
Emery called Cutler a "franchise-level quarterback" but said "any and all contracts will be kept private."
"I think that is a very private issue between a club and player, and will remain that way," Emery said.
