Jay Cutler hopes to remain a Bear; Hoping for Franchise tag?
16.2 million is what it will cost tge Bears to keep Jay Cutler. Who wouldn’t want to be Franchised?
“I would like to stay in Chicago,” the quarterback said Monday on WMVP-AM’s “The Jay Cutler Show,” per CSN Chicago. “I’d be surprised if they kind of broke up the group that we have on offense. I want to stay here … The longer that we can stay together as a group, the better we’re gonna be.”
Cutler, still out with an ankle injury, confirmed that he had a rare midseason discussion with general manager Phil Emery to discuss the state of the team.
One option on the table is the Bears placing a franchise tag on Cutler, something the quarterback said he was open to exploring.
“If they want to franchise me, I’m gonna feel good about the situation we’re in,” he said. “We’re gonna be in our second year of the offense with these guys. We’re gonna be better (and) I’m gonna be better, so it’s not personal. It’s business.”
