Report: Bears Discussed Extension With Jay Cutler Before Hiring Marc Trestman


Jay Cutler may tell you that he loves Marc Trestman’s new offensive approach, but the arrival of Trestman may have cost Cutler a mega deal according to

$15 million a season will be about what the going rate is to franchise a quarterback next season, so the Bears definitely can wait on the huge deal until they see how Cutler fares under Trestman.
