ESPN New York's Rich Cimini reports the Jets "won't be suitors" for Jay Cutler.
CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported the Jets were a "possibility" for Cutler, but he might have just been connecting dots after New York hired QBs coach Jeremy Bates, who has a long history with Cutler. Cutler did not have a good relationship with Brandon Marshall at the end of their time together in Chicago, however, and the Jets are not just a veteran quarterback away from competing. It is highly unlikely Cutler remains in Chicago, but it does not look like he will be heading to New York. Feb 9 - 10:34 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Jets are a "possibility" to acquire Jay Cutler.

The Jets hired Jeremy Bates as their new QBs coach on Wednesday. He and Cutler have a long history together, and by most accounts, the two really like working with each other. Bates was Cutler's QBs coach in Denver early in his career when he went to the Pro Bowl, and then Bates was brought over to Chicago in 2012 to work with Cutler again. On top of Bates, the Jets also currently employ former Bears teammates Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall. It could be a match. The Bears are fully expected to release Cutler over the next month.

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Bears will be "moving on" from Jay Cutler.

La Canfora is just confirming the obvious. Recovering from shoulder surgery, Cutler immediately went back in the tank following Adam Gase's departure from Chicago, and once again got hurt. Two months shy of his 34th birthday, Cutler is the same player he's always been. Both the Bears and Cutler need a fresh start. Cutler is much more likely to be released than traded.

Bears GM Ryan Pace said Jay Cutler is "significantly ahead of schedule" in his rehab following shoulder surgery.

Cutler suffered a labrum tear in his right (throwing) shoulder in late November and missed the final six games of the season. The Bears are expected to move on from Cutler this offseason, but any effort to trade him could be undone by the injury. The quarterback has no guaranteed money left on his deal, however, so the Bears could carry him on the roster until he is healthy if they choose. Still, the most likely scenario is Cutler is released before free agency.

Jay Cutler will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery on Saturday.

Cutler is believed to have a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He'll finish 2016 with 1,059 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions over five appearances. There's a high-percentage chance Cutler has played his final down as a Bear. Matt Barkley will be the starting quarterback down the stretch of the Bears' latest failed season, with David Fales handling backup duty.

Jay Cutler (shoulder) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Coach John Fox continues to say Cutler is day to day, but he's highly unlikely to play against the 49ers. Matt Barkley gets a good spot at home against a dreadful defense, but he's hard to trust in a critical fantasy week.

Jay Cutler (shoulder) is inactive for Week 12 against the Titans.

Cutler is holding off on shoulder surgery for now. His season is reportedly in doubt. Matt Barkley will start against Tennessee and downgrades the entire pass offense. The rest of Chicago's inactives are CB De'Vante Bausby, CB Deiondre' Hall, S DeAndre Houston-Carson, OG Josh Sitton, OLB Leonard Floyd, and DE Mitch Unrein.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it's "far from a sure thing" that the Bears will move on from Jay Cutler this offseason.

The general consensus is that Cutler will be released after the season, which wouldn't be hard to do because all the guaranteed money from his seven-year extension has already been paid out. However, the Bears may not be able to find a better alternative in the draft with this year's class of quarterbacks considered to be unusually weak. Cutler will carry a $12.5 million base salary in 2017, which is fairly reasonable for a starting quarterback. Brian Hoyer outplayed Cutler before he got hurt, but he's likely to be a free agent casualty. Rapoport notes that coach John Fox is not Cutler's "biggest fan," though it's unclear if that will factor into the team's decision to keep him for next season.

Jay Cutler (shoulder) missed practice again Friday and is listed as doubtful for Week 12 against the Titans.

Despite coach John Fox's claims that Cutler is merely "day to day," he didn't practice at all this week and never had a chance of playing against Tennessee. Matt Barkley will be the Bears' starter, and he'll be backed up by David Fales.
Fri, Nov 25, 2016 02:45:00 PM

Coach John Fox said Jay Cutler (shoulder) is day to day.

"It's not season-ending, contrary to the reports you hear," Fox said. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Cutler is believed to have a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder, which would certainly end his season. The Bears have not confirmed what the injury is, and Fox isn't ruling him out for Week 12 against the Titans. Cutler didn't practice Wednesday. He's extremely doubtful.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jay Cutler's shoulder injury is believed to be a torn labrum.

Yikes. Cutler will seek a second opinion but if the diagnosis is confirmed, he'll obviously be out for a while. Already playing without their best wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (PED suspension) and tight end Zach Miller (foot), the Bears can pretty much pack it in and start evaluating for next season. At this point, it would be a surprise if Cutler plays again this year. What a nightmare season for the Bears. At least the Cubs finally won the World Series.

According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, Jay Cutler (shoulder) is expected to miss time.

The Chicago Tribune reported Monday that the Bears were "exploring" the idea of shutting Cutler down for the year, so this news doesn't come as a surprise. David Fales was signed off the Ravens' practice squad and will presumably back up Matt Barkley Sunday versus Tennessee. Brian Hoyer remains on injured reserve with a fractured forearm. If Cutler is indeed done for the year, there's a good chance we've seen the last of him in a Bears uniform. Drafting a quarterback should be a top priority for the Bears in 2017.

The Chicago Tribune reports Jay Cutler suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Giants, and the Bears are "exploring" whether it will end Cutler's season.

There are few other details available at this point, but this would be a great excuse for John Fox to wash his hands of Cutler for good, send him to injured reserve, and play someone else for the rest of the season while continuing to improve the Bears' draft position. The Bears are a full-throttle trainwreck on almost every conceivable level. They may as well start evaluating for 2017.

Jay Cutler completed 17-of-30 passes for 252 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Bears' 22-16, Week 11 loss to the Giants.

Coming off a nightmarish performance, Cutler was standing and delivering lasers, but there was only so much he could do with a limited supporting cast that thinned out even further with Zach Miller's foot injury. Miller appears to have suffered a break, lowering Cutler's already scarily-low floor even further. He'll be hard to trust as a Week 12 QB2 against the Titans.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 04:52:00 PM

Coach John Fox said Monday the Bears will stick with Jay Cutler as their starting quarterback.

After playing one of his best games in years against the Vikings on Monday Night Football in Week 9, Cutler went right back in the tank in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay, committing four turnovers in arguably the worst quarterback performance of the week. Having lost Alshon Jeffery (PEDs) for the next month, Cutler will now be tasked with an inferior pass-catcher corps in upcoming games against the Giants, Titans, 49ers, and Lions. Cutler is playing out the string for a team he won't be a member of in 2017.
