Chicago Bears Actively Looking For Poor Misguided Team to Trade QB Jay Cutler To
What was pretty much known after the end of the 2016 season is now out in the open, as the Chicago Bears have made it public that they have actively started seeking a trade partner for quarterback Jay Cutler, multiple league sources said.
“While Cutler’s contract does not include a no-trade clause, there remains a widespread belief that a deal will require both Cutler and the Bears to agree on the suitor. Cutler, 33, has little incentive to play for a noncompetitive team given the lack of any guaranteed money in his current contract, sources with NFL teams privy to the details said.”
I’m told by league sources Bears have now begun actively shopping Cutler, which isn’t surprising, but it does require some context:

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the team informed Cutler of this when they began seeking trade partners in min-January.
Injuries limited Cutler to just five games last season as he finished with just four touchdowns and five interceptions. His 78.1 quarterback rating was the second-worst of his career.
