Will the Bears Trade Jay Culter Away in the Near Future?

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

There are some staff and players in Chicago that are not happy with quarterback Jay Cutler being a Chicago Bear. Head coach John Fox has been telling some of his close friends that he wants no part of Culter. Mike Mulligan of the Chicago Tribune notes, "Two different league sources say [head coach John] Fox had told friends he was done with Cutler."

It appears as though Cutler and Fox are not on the same page or Cutler has not yet acknowledged that there are problems between the two. Culter thinks that there is nothing wrong with their relationship. "There's never been any strain in our relationship," Cutler said of Fox, per Chris Emma of CBS Chicago.

As of right now John Fox and the Chicago Bears don't have much of a choice other than starting Jay Cutler. Brian Hoyer was recently injured and place on injured reserve with a broken arm. The other option at quarterback would be third-string quarterback Matt Barkley, who finished 6-of-15 with 81 yards and two interceptions in week 7.

Cutler, 33, is signed through 2020. There is a cap hit of $16 million in 2017, $17 million in 2018, and $20 million in 2019 via Sportrac.com. Keep in mind that none of that is guaranteed. That means the Bears could part ways anytime and avoid any significant salary cap hits over the next few years.

What should the Bears do with him? Keep him or trade him? More updates to come as trade deadline approaches.
