Bears Have A Busy First Day In Free Agency

QB Mike Glennon

Jay Cutler does not always have the greatest reputation for dealing with teammates, whether or not that is reality we're not exactly sure. "I wish nothing but the best in the next chapter of his life".

Things in Chicago are pretty gloomy this morning as the Chicago Bears have struck out on many of their top free agent targets. And over the past three seasons, the Bears have gone 14-34 with Cutler under center (he only played in five games in 2016).

"It's a tough call", said one executive, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss players under contract to other teams.

NY is also in the market for a quarterback, but have missed out on Glennon, Tyrod Taylor and Brian Hoyer - all of whom were targets for them.

Glennon on time w/TB: "I looked at that as times to prepare for this moment". He threw for 7,085 yards and 62 scores his final two seasons, and was selected by the Buccaneers in the third round of the 2013 draft. He became the fastest Bears QB to throw for 3,000 yards, doing so in just 12 games in 2014 & 2015. The Bucs tried to trade Glennon several times, but there were no takers. So it's only fitting to note that Glennon is still a major unknown, with a 5-13 record as an National Football League starter and only 11 regular- season passes since 2014.

When the Republican health care cuts come, women are likely to have to deal with the consequences in their daily lives. The bill would also end the requirement for individuals to have insurance, as well as most Obamacare-levied taxes.

Glennon felt Chicago's enthusiasm about the Cubs' World Series win way down in Tampa.

"I think it was an unspoken competition", Glennon said Friday, one day after signing a three-year, $45 million contract with $18.5 million guaranteed.

"We are grateful to Jay for all he did as a Bear", Bears chairman George McCaskey said in a statement. Hoyer is not a starting caliber quarterback and not even an average backup. He finished with a career-high 92.3 quarterback rating and committed eight fewer turnovers than the previous season. He's still a guy that's going to need playmakers around him, but after watching him, he'll be more ready to step in and play than any rookie.

Unfortunately for the Bears, Gase did too good a job. He was constantly working with a variety of head coaches and offensive coordinators. But despite his arm strength and accuracy, Cutler has underachieved in his 11-year career. Bates worked with Cutler while coaching on the staffs of the Broncos and Bears. He served as Winston's backup the last two seasons.

To completely blame Fox and Pace for Cutler's steady Bears decline would be unfair. They're a pair of new offensive parts, the first a speedy deep threat and the latter a battering ram for the running game. It was the previous administration that gave Cutler a sweetheart contract, making him unable to get cut for two seasons without massive salary cap implications.
