They are cleaning house. Forte and Jay are next. For sure Jay. I am convinced he is traded or cut in next week.

Wouldn't the cap implications of cutting Cutler be too significant for it to make sense to do so?

 

It would be significant for this year, but I think cutting him before Tuesday opens things up for the future. If the FO doesn't think they can win this season, it could make since to just punt Cutler.

They are not cutting Cutler. If someone is going to offer them a couple draft picks he will be gone for sure. But to cut him and have nothing to show for it including a QB I don't see that happening.

I do tend to agree with this though.

If they don't cut him now, than you are taking cap hits on him next year. With the amount of cap space they can get and the fact that they are cleaning house, I think it is better to get everything in order in 1 year vs. pushing the problem down the road and my presumption is Bears believe that to be the case. They can save real money by cutting him now and even the cap impacts might be muted depending on what contract he signs.

 

Ultimately I think someone will trade for him though. I'd be very surprised if he is on the roster by the 12th. I think by that point, if he hasn't been traded, he'll be cut.

From what I've been told, I would be highly surprised if the #Bears don't sign 1 of the top 5 FA safeties. D. Searcy is name I've heard most

 

Ty Youngfelt ‏@TyYoungfelt 24m24 minutes ago

Quantity over Quality may be game plan for Pace...keep hearing 2nd/3rd tier FAs attached to Bears...

 

James Fox ‏@JamesFox917 3m3 minutes ago Lockport, IL

Something like: Searcy (S), Cox (CB), Foster (ILB), and Reed (OLB) is doable for #Bears in free agency.

Huge! Great deal

 

Real smart move by him, probably could have gotten more elsewhere, stayed with a sure thing, very rare these days.

Thought I saw Oakland offering $12 a year. Good decision to stay with Rodgers. Look what happened to Jennings.

If Marcus Mariota fell to the Bears would you want them to take him?

 

I'm starting to think that might happen. That would be a tough call.

In a heartbeat.

 

It has nothing to do with whether I think he'll turn out to be a good NFL player. Enough people think he can be, and you don't pass up a shot to take what could be a franchise QB. The Bears need another QB soon, if not now. Even if people think he'll be a dud, he's a lot more likely to succeed than any quarterback the Bears can get in the second round or later.

 

EDIT: Only way I'd be ok with not taking Mariota if he's there is if someone else offers good picks to trade up and get him. But just taking someone else at 8 if Mariota is on the board? Absolutely not.

Randall Cobb back to the Packers. 4 years 40 million 17 guaranteed.

 

That sucks, I was hoping the Raider money would convince him to move.

I have no hate for conte. For his sake I wish he'd retire.

 

Hate is probably too strong of a word, but I don't remember a player that bad getting so much playing time.

 

Agreed that he needs to retire just for his own health.

I can't recall another season where the top FA was known to be signed before the FA period even started. Did the NFL change their negotiation/Tampering rules in the last CBA?

They can't "officially" sign, but starting yesterday at 12pm eastern, teams have a 72 hours negotiating window with players.

If it's about BPA like Pace says and it's between Mariota and Cooper, I'd take Cooper. If I really want a QB, I'd take the guy out of Baylor in a later round. And I'm a guy who thinks the Bears shouuld've done everything to get rid of Cutler.
