  • New Deal For Cutler

    Bears announce Cutler deal

    Though the terms, as usual, have not been disclosed, the Chicago Bears officially have announced that quarterback Jay Cutler's contract has been extended by two years.

    Cutler is now under contract through 2013.

    Full terms likely will be leaked or reported in the coming days. So stay tuned.

      $20 Million in guaranteed money through 2013. A little early, but can't argue with it, since we gave up a lot to get him.

        Not early. We're aren't ripping up his old deal, just adding years onto it. Signed through 2013. Works for me.

          This serves to add some guaranteed money to the contract since a trade strips that away. It's common practice after a trade - if anything this is a little late as such deals are often ready to go before the trade is signed off on.

          Fairly win win - Jay gets a little more security knowing he isn't a freebie to release/trade, he probably gets a new signing bonus straight away, and the Bears probably saved a bit off the cap in the short term (which may not actually matter with the CBA expiring and all).

            What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
            they get smoked.

                I'm not sure, but it's probably better for 2009 after this. It likely wasn't too much of a pay increase, if at all, and all they likely really did was effectively turn some base salary into prorated signing bonus, not to mention reset his year count on his deal back to year 1, which is almost always the lowest cap impacting year on an NFL contract.

                  Well I just figured because they took on Gaines Adams contract as well on top of recently giving Briggs, Urlacher and that crappy guard some money. I'm not familiar with the amounts, just curious.

                    Smart not to give him a long term contract. He will never win a superbowl. He doesn't have it in him.

                      He should get his lifetime contract any day now.

                          Prior to this, we had quite a bit of cap room. I'm guessing this was done with a lot of the money coming this year to eat some of it up.

                          Gaines Adams counts against the cap for about a million a year for the rest of his contract...Tampa got stuck.

                            Urlacher only got like 1 year added onto his contract, crappy guard didn't get that much, and Lance Briggs' deal was below market price. He got less than what the Jets gave Calvin Pace.

                            Money's no problem. Most of our good players are locked up for the next few years.
