The Chicago Tribune speculates the Bears could target a quarterback in the draft.
Jay Cutler has won over coach John Fox, who called him the "one of the brightest spots" of the Bears' 2015 season, but it still makes sense for Chicago to start planning for the future. The guaranteed money on Cutler's deal runs out after this season, and the 33-year-old has never truly established himself as a top-line starter. Without a solid backup on the roster, it would not be surprising if the Bears decided to grab a quarterback in the middle rounds. Apr 18 - 8:02 AM

Speaking at the Combine, coach John Fox called Jay Cutler "one of the brightest spots" of the Bears' 2015 season.

The Bears openly shopped Cutler in year one of the Fox-Ryan Pace regime, but found no takers and went with him almost by default. Despite injuries to Kevin White, Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett, Eddie Royal, and Marquess Wilson, Cutler set career highs in passer rating (92.3) and yards per pass attempt (7.6).
Feb 24 - 8:59 PM

Bears GM Ryan Pace insisted at Monday's season-ending presser that the team has "extreme confidence" in Jay Cutler.

Cutler was the subject of rampant trade rumors with the Titans last offseason, but those died the second Marcus Mariota was made the No. 2 overall pick. This year, it sounds like the Bears will embrace Cutler, at least partially because he's due $10 million guaranteed. Perhaps without Adam Gase, Cutler is certainly entering a make-or-break year in the Pace-John Fox regime.
Jan 4 - 4:24 PM

Jay Cutler completed 17-of-23 passes for 245 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in the Bears' Week 17 loss to the Lions.

The first -- and quite probably only -- season of Cutler under OC Adam Gase ends with a 21:11 TD-to-INT ratio and 64-percent completion rate across 15 starts. Cutler was not a productive fantasy quarterback this season, but he played with more poise and structure than ever before in Chicago, and was ultimately a positive during another postseason-less year for the Bears. Cutler will turn 33 in April. Although the Bears' new regime clearly didn't want Cutler last offseason, he presumably exceeded their expectations and will almost certainly be back in 2016 based on a $10 million contractual guarantee. That shouldn't stop GM Ryan Pace from looking hard at quarterbacks in April's draft.
Jan 3 - 3:53 PM

Jay Cutler completed 20-of-27 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown and rushed twice for 21 yards in the Bears' Week 16 win over the Buccaneers.

Without a deep threat, Cutler mostly stuck to short and intermediate passes. The strategy paid off as Cutler showed strong chemistry with Zach Miller and kept the clock moving by converting a number of third downs. Cutler doesn’t get enough credit for his mobility but his elusiveness was certainly on display Sunday. Cutler threw an interception on a pass that was deflected by Gerald McCoy but the play was ultimately called back because of a facemask penalty. Cutler hasn’t put up huge stats but he’s done a solid job considering all the Bears’ injuries on offense this season. He’ll close out the year against the division-rival Lions.

Jay Cutler completed 26-of-37 passes for 231 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Bears' Week 15 loss to the Vikings.

Cutler also lost a fumble on what the five sacks he took in this one. The interception was an awful throw that was picked off by DE Justin Trattou. Cutler did find Alshon Jeffery for a 10-yard touchdown earlier in the game on a back-shoulder fade route, beating Terence Newman. Later, Cutler hooked up with Matt Forte for a four-yard touchdown on a dump-off. Cutler won't be anything more than a mid-range QB2 on the road at Tampa Bay in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 04:47:00 PM

Jay Cutler completed 19-of-31 passes for 315 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears' Week 14 loss to Washington.

He scrambled once for five yards and lost a fumble on a strip sack. Although it was not a perfect game, it was Cutler's best in a month as he found Alshon Jeffery and Zach Miller for touchdowns and nearly pushed the game into overtime with a fourth-quarter 50-yard bomb to Jeffery. Plays later, Robbie Gould missed a 50-yard field goal. Cutler will be a mid-range to high-end QB2 when the Bears take on the Vikings in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 05:40:00 PM

Jay Cutler completed 18-of-31 passes for 202 yards and an interception Week 13 against the 49ers.

Cutler had a scare in the fourth quarter when he was body slammed by Jaquiski Tartt at the end of a sack. He spoke with trainers on the sideline following the play before coming back in to lead the Bears to a touchdown on the very next drive. Cutler could have saved his fantasy day by hitting Alshon Jeffery for what would have been a 55-yard touchdown in the second half, but he just overthrew the star receiver. With the Bears transitioning to a run-heavy offense, Cutler now has 33 or fewer passing attempts in five of his last six games. He will be a low-end streaming option at best in what should be another low-paced game next week against Washington.

The Bears added Jay Cutler to their Week 13 injury report on Friday, but listed him as probable with an illness.

He was "limited" in Friday's practice. Late-week additions to the injury report are always cause for concern, but the probable tag officially means the Bears consider Cutler "virtually certain" to be available for his normal duties against the 49ers. Cutler is No. 10 in Patrick Daugherty's Week 13 Fantasy Quarterback Rankings, which are accessible at the link below.

Jay Cutler completed 19-of-31 passes for 200 yards with one touchdown and rushed four times for nine yards in the Bears' Week 12 win over the Packers.

Cutler outplayed Aaron Rodgers Thursday in his first career win at Lambeau Field. He was only sacked once and wasn’t fazed by Green Bay’s pass rush. The game plan was pretty conservative as Cutler stayed in the intermediate part of the field instead of going for the home run. His lone touchdown pass came against a heavy blitz. Zach Miller was wide open on the play. He didn’t click with Alshon Jeffery right away but their chemistry improved as the game went on with Jeffery hauling in four of his five second-half targets. Cutler has an appetizing matchup against the 49ers in Week 13.
Fri, Nov 27, 2015 01:02:00 AM

Jay Cutler completed 18-of-32 passes for 265 yards and an interception in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Broncos.

He also lost a late fourth-quarter fumble. Cutler didn't have much of a supporting cast with Alshon Jeffery sidelined. His pick came trying to force a pass to Marquess Wilson, who he targeted a team-high seven times. It's Cutler's only game without a touchdown this year. Cutler will be a mid-range QB2 against the Packers on Thanksgiving.

Jay Cutler completed 19-of-24 passes for 258 yards and three touchdowns in the Bears' Week 10 blowout win over the Rams.

Cutler and the Bears got off to a blazing start and went into halftime with a two-touchdown lead before eventually winning 37-13. Cutler threw for 233 yards and all three of his scores before the break. He hit backup TE Zach Miller for his first two touchdowns, one an 87-yarder that was caught by Miller at the line of scrimmage, and the other was a wide-open two-yard score. Cutler then found Jeremy Langford for an 83-yard touchdown that Langford blazed past all the Rams defensive backs. Cutler has had a fine season and is likely earning first-year OC Adam Gase a head-coaching job. Cutler's test will be tougher Week 11 at home against the Broncos.

Jay Cutler completed 27-of-40 passes for 345 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Bears' 22-19, Week 9 win over the Chargers on Monday night.

Cutler's night started off horribly, losing a sack-fumble on the second series at the Chargers' 22-yard line and then throwing a 68-yard pick-six to Jason Verrett on the fourth possession. But he gathered himself and found Alshon Jeffery for gains of 47 and 14 before hitting Martellus Bennett for a second-quarter one-yard touchdown. The Bears trailed by nine heading into the fourth quarter before rookie RB Jeremy Langford rushed for a one-yard touchdown on the heels of multiple Cutler-to-Jeffery connections. For the game-winning score, Cutler drilled a fastball down the seam to No. 2 TE Zach Miller, who made a one-handed catch, for the 25-yard score. Cutler and the Bears head to St. Louis for Week 10 in a daunting matchup where he'll be a mid-to-low QB2.

ESPN Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson said Jay Cutler's "comfort level is obvious" in new-OC Adam Gase's offense.

"Cutler, believe it or not, is playing efficient and smart football. He's actually coachable," Dickerson said. "It took a long time to reach this point, but Cutler is the best player on the Bears' offense, even ahead of Alshon Jeffery, in my opinion." Cutler's current 1.9-percent interception rate is a full point lower than his career best, and he is taking the fewest sacks per game since coming to Chicago. The touchdown numbers have not been great so far, but that could change this week against San Diego. Cutler is in the QB1 streaming mix.

Jay Cutler completed 22-of-33 passes for 211 yards and one touchdown, and rushed for a four-yard touchdown in the Bears' Week 8 loss to Minnesota.

Cutler only took one sack and committed no turnovers in a solid performance where he leaned heavily on Alshon Jeffery (15 targets) and kept the Bears in frequent scoring position. Chicago settled for three field goal tries, with Robbie Gould missing one. Cutler will remain a solid QB1 streaming option when the Bears take on the Chargers on Monday Night Football in Week 9.
