Jay Cutler has had an interesting career. He is one of the most physically talented quarterbacks in the NFL but has never made it to a single playoff game in his 11-year NFL career. Over the last eight years, Cutler has shattered the Chicago Bears passing records but ESPN reports that the Bears will finally cut Cutler this week and move on from the veteran quarterback.

Jay Cutler's years of disappointment

Jay Cutler has never enjoyed a championship season since leaving high school. Despite a big-time arm and some talented receivers to throw the ball to, Cutler has only made it to the postseason once.

He set passing records at Vanderbilt, but the team never played in a bowl game with him at quarterback. The Denver Broncos made him their first round draft pick in 2006 and won the starting job in week Week 12. He started the next two seasons, finishing 7-9 an d 8-8, missing the playoffs both seasons. Jay Cutler asked to be traded and Denver sent him to Chicago. Outside of an NFC Championship appearance in 2010, the Bears missed the playoffs in every other season with Cutler at quarterback. The season they made the playoffs, Chicago finished 11-5. Their overall record since trading for Jay is 58-70. Jay Cutler holds the Chicago Bears records for completions, attempts, passing yards, passing touchdowns, and career passer rating.

The future of Culter and the Bears

For the Chicago Bears, the future looks like they will bring in a new quarterback to lead them in 2017. Early reports indicate that the Bears will sign former Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting quarterback Mike Glennon. With Jameis Winston the face of the Bucs, Glennon became expendable and will have a chance to revive his career with the Bears.

Glennon started 13 games as a rookie, throwing 19 touchdowns and only nine interceptions. The next year, he backed up Josh McCown and started five times, throwing 10 touchdowns and six interceptions. As for Jay Cutler, the future seems uncertain. There are teams like the Houston Texans that could use a new quarterback but he will probably have to wait to see what Tony Romo does first.
