The Bears’ Big Decision

Jay Cutler’s contract is set to expire at the end of the 2013 season. Will the Chicago Bears bring back the franchise quarterback or let him loose in free agency? The answer is somewhere in the middle

By
Andrew Brandt
· More from Andrew·

The Bears have a big decision ahead with the player who has been the (sometimes sour) face of their franchise since 2009, Jay Cutler. With the importance of the quarterback position and the financial commitment involved, all other decision-making with the team will flow from their action with Cutler, whose contract ends after the season. The decision is similar to one that many organizations—in all sports and all businesses—face: whether to invest what is required to continue with the status quo or move forward into a new chapter of the company. 

Removing the noise

General manager Phil Emery proactively announced before the season that there would be no player contract extensions in 2013. While the broad statement was about all players, the one most affected, of course, was Cutler. Unlike several other teams this offseason, the Bears were not willing to extend their established and proven quarterback nearing the end of his existing contract.

Emery’s strategic pronouncement: (1) removed any chatter about “will they or won’t they extend Cutler” during the season; (2) provided motivation for Cutler—and others with expiring contracts—to perform without long-term financial security; and (3) allowed management, having just hired a new coaching staff led by Marc Trestman, to step back and appraise allocation of resources, at quarterback or elsewhere.

While Emery took some risk in not securing Cutler—see Flacco, Joe—it was a sensible approach in dealing with the team’s most important position. 

Overall body of work

Cutler’s play can be uneven, but he is a talent.

I remember our Packers scouts gushing about Cutler’s 2006 Pro Day workout at Vanderbilt; he whistled passes effortlessly through a winter gale. I also remember playing against him in Denver where our scouts, watching one particular throw, muttered a collective, You’ve got to be sh—ing me.  His talent and arm strength is tantalizing. However, he has been inconsistent and can be loose with the ball. And this inconsistency can manifest itself not only within the same season but also within the same game!

In deciding to invest the required guaranteed money to secure Cutler for the future, it is important to evaluate as complete a body of work as possible. While fans and media can react to the emotion of the moment and swing with the wind week to week, team management cannot. Reacting on impulse can be hazardous not only to the health of NFL coaches and management, but also to the team’s overall long-term health.

In this important final season of his contract, Cutler has been injured, and his backup, Josh McCown, has played well.  While some have suggested that this indicates either (1) a future for McCown or (2) no need for an elite quarterback in Trestman’s system, the Bears wisely will not react to the short term. McCown, turning 35 in July, is certainly not the long-term answer. Jay Cutler, turning 31 in April, has been their past and might well be the future.

The market

Will Steelers Blow It Up?

The Steelers face a different type of decision than the Bears do with their star quarterback in the offseason. Now finishing his sixth year of an eight-year, $102 million deal, Ben Roethlisberger might be presiding over a different type of team going forward.


No team in the NFL has restructured more contracts to defer cap room since 2011 than the Steelers. While some of the “mortgaged” players include young stars such as Lawrence Timmons and Lamarr Woodley, older players also have been restructured, including James Harrison (now released), Heath Miller, Troy Polamalu and Roethlisberger in each of the past three years.


These short-term gains, however, have led to long-term pain, as the Steelers have kept their core veteran players together at a large cost. The 2014 cap numbers for players such as Timmons, Woodley, Polamalu, Miller and Ike Taylor will all be around $10 million, and Roethlisberger will be around $19 million. The bill is coming due for this team.


The 2014 offseason will be a referendum on the Steelers. They knew the risk of pushing cap out to maximize performance in their window of success. Now the question is whether they will accept the closing of this window and try to open another with a different group of core players.


I have no inside knowledge of the Steelers’ plan, but my sense is that in order to progress and not stagnate there must be tough decisions. And some players whose contracts have been mortgaged might soon be evicted, leaving dead-money charges in their wake.


Roethlisberger is the signature player of a franchise that might be moving from a veteran team hanging on to its past to a younger team hoping for a future run of similar success. It sets up a decision point for the organization and potentially for Roethlisberger: whether to continue the course with an aging and expensive team, or to change direction at many levels, perhaps even at the level of its most valuable player.


—A.B.

The upper echelon quarterback market has been active over the past couple of years, setting up fresh and relevant data points for Cutler and the Bears.

In 2012, two of the league’s A-listers secured new contracts. Peyton Manning, released by the Colts, chose the Broncos over several teams, at least two of which—the Titans and Seahawks—would have paid significantly more than the $18 million average per year (APY) and $58 million guaranteed he received from Denver. Later last year, the Saints and Drew Brees set a new standard for NFL players, a $20 million APY, with $40 million in the first year and $60 million guaranteed.

This offseason Joe Flacco negotiated a $20.1 million APY with $52 million guaranteed. I actually thought that, with the leverage Flacco had coming off a Super Bowl victory, the structure—with only this year guaranteed and option bonuses in the next two years—would be more secure.

Following the Flacco deal came extensions for Tony Romo, Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford and Matt Ryan. While the Stafford guarantee was “only” $43 million, the other contracts have guarantees ranging from $54 million to $59 million, with Ryan the fortunate beneficiary of going last; his guarantee is the highest.

While the marketplace range is roughly  $18-20 million APY and $52-60 million guaranteed, these deals are hard to compare as players come from different points in their contract stream: Manning was a free agent, Brees and Flacco were on franchise tags, Romo and Ryan were in the last year of their deals, and Rodgers and Stafford had two years remaining.

(As an aside, I have never understood why the top quarterbacks do not push for fully guaranteed contracts, such as those given to even below-average NBA and MLB players. Yes, the NFL has not done that for veteran players, but are teams really going to tell their franchise quarterback they will not guarantee later years of their deals so they can be able to cut them? No NFL players have more leverage to make this “ask” than these.)

The fundamental question is whether the Bears value Cutler to the extent the aforementioned teams value their quarterbacks. Before any negotiations, Emery and Trestman must make that franchise-defining decision.

If and when that decision is made, agent Bus Cook—a longtime friend of mine from years of dealings on Brett Favre—will enter the picture. Cook’s country lawyer façade belies a smart and savvy negotiator.  He certainly will argue that, like Flacco, Cutler’s imminent free agency in a league salivating for proven quarterbacks has extraordinary value.  

The Bears in turn could counter with the franchise tag, a powerful management tool now strengthened in the new CBA, as the calculation of the value of the tag now rolls in the previous five years, rather than only one. The threat of the tag allows teams to negotiate aggressively, knowing a player’s alternative is a one-year deal.  Although those one-year earnings are high, the tag prevents the player from receiving a deeper commitment and sense of security.

The tag obviously is in play with Cutler. It gives the Bears (1) another year to judge the body of work of Cutler in evaluating a deeper commitment, and (2) negotiating leverage towards the type of longer contract they would prefer.

What will happen?

Cutler, warts and all, has immense value. Beyond the unique circumstances that set Peyton Manning free, it is rare to see a quarterback with proven performance on the open market. Indeed, the Bears acquired Cutler for a package including two first-round picks, as valuable a currency as there is in the NFL. If Cutler were a true free agent, several quarterback-needy teams would pursue him. His market value is not a question of how “good” he is; rather, it is a function of short supply and high demand.

My best guess is the Bears will resort to the compromise option and apply the franchise tag to Cutler in February. Cutler’s uneven performance this year—complicated by injury—makes it the most reasonable option. The better question is whether the Bears will tag with an eye toward negotiating a long-term deal, or to pay approximately $16 million to continue to assess whether Cutler is the long-term answer for the Bears. In the past three years, Michael Vick, Drew Brees and Joe Flacco have all been saddled with the tag, only to reach agreement on a longer deal.

This is an organizational decision that merits watching as much as any in the offseason.  All eyes will be on Chicago when the Bears’ self-imposed moratorium on contract negotiations expires after the season.

Said it before and I'll say it again:   We're talkin' Jeff George here - not Manning / Brady / Rogers etc.

Just like Nuke LaLoosh, cutler's got a million-dollar arm

and a 10-cent head.   Throw in some bad attitude and lack of leadership qualities

and the Bear should pay $18 - $20 million for that?

I think not.  Cutler's had 8 seasons to prove himself - the results speak for themselves.

The key question is whether you can win a championship with Cutler.  From what I can tell, the quarterbacks who win championships are the ones who play smart, can read defenses and avoid turnovers:  Flacco, Mannings, Brady, Rogers

There are a couple of exceptions, careless quarterbacks with amazing arms (Rothlisberger, Favre) who sometimes squeak in there, but more often than not they seem to be either the exception to the rule, or on teams who win in spite of their mistakes.

Cutler is more the Favre type.  You'll get in the playoffs, he'll look amazing for 3 quarters, and throw it away on the last play when you need him most.  Might sell a lot of tickets, but won't put a flag on the ceiling.

The below list shows who QB'd DaBears from 1992 until Cutler took over. This was a dark period in the team's history. Cutler has had his issues over the years, but has never had an offensive line that could protect him and decent targets to throw-to until now. Before he was hurt, he was playing much better than he previously had played. Fewer turnovers and fewer sacks; more TDs. They should keep Cutler, but try to draft his replacement with an eye towards replacing him in three to five years.

Steve Walsh, Kyle Orton, Rex Grossman, Craig Krenzel, Jim Miller, Shane Matthews, Dave Krieg, Brian Griese, Jim Harbaugh, Erik Kramer, Chris Chandler, Kordell Stewart, Cade McNown, Chad Hutchinson, Rick Mirer, Jonathan Quinn, Peter Tom Willis, Henry Burris, Will Furrer & Moses Moreno. (114 - 132 record)

Unless you're talking about one of the upper echelon, elite quarterbacks in this league, they just aren't worth that kind of money.  Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers are worth the money.  Joe Flacco, Matt Ryan, Jay Cutler, etc. are not worth the money.  You're much better off getting a value quarterback that's competent and spending money elsewhere.

John Madden once said turnovers were the only stat that matters . Cutler's thrown 100 ints in 8 seasons while losing another  22 fumbles in that time span . He is consistent and for sure not worth $15 or $20M a year

Please Jesus don't let Cutler return to the Bears, he's way too up-and-down and has trouble avoiding sacks and completing on third downs. Watching him play over the years has been a nightmare for the entire city and he must go, he has failed one too many times!!!

Cutler's arm talent is special... the rest of his quarterbacking not so much.  Do NOT open the vault for a slightly above avg QB.  For a guy who is supposedly so damned smart how come his pre-snap reads are often faulty?  To me Cutler is closer to Grossman than he is to Peyton Manning.  Bears made the SB with a great team and lousy QB.  Bears fans have suffered so many bad QBs that they're afraid to let go of Cutler.  The only way the Bears can hit the lottery of an elite franchise QB is to keep buying tickets...

Bottom line: tag'em (don't fret about hurting his feelings), draft a QB and defense

All these people ripping Cutler aren’t fans of the Bears. We’ve been forced to watch dozens of awful QBs over the years. The media dislike Cutler. He’s an abrasive guy. But most of the criticisms I’m reading here are just crap. Cutler is soft? You must not have seen how many times he’s been sacked since he came to the Bears. His teammates hate him? The only one I’ve seen rip him was Urlacher and I like 54 but he’s a prima donna. He was put on a Bears offense with bad coaching, awful linemen and he out-performed every Bears QB I’ve seen as an adult. 

When it comes down to it, Phil Emery and Marc Trestman will make the call. Trestman has shown to be an excellent evaluator of the position. If he wants Cutler to stay, then Cutler will stay.

Not a team player. Never has been a team player. Doubtful he ever will be a team player. It's all about Jay. It has always been all about Jay.  He and Dwight Howard could have been separated at birth. Let him go. Some middle of the pack, or worse team will pick him up and they will go nowhere.

Bad attitude, cancer in the locker room, poor work ethic, will not play with even slightest injury.  Best if not only good thing that the midget did while doing his short stay with the broncos before returning to the Pats was to get rid of Cutler for the draft choices.

Cutler has talent, diluted over the past several years, having to struggle with well known offensive problems, including multiple OC's, who have failed to get the QB to adapt to their system.  He is not an upper level QB by the record and his detached, prickly personality has really been a negative force.  With Trestman, who is more QB friendly and operating a more balanced offense, he has improved.  Whether his attitude has mellowed is not certain.  It seems most reasonable the parties will adopt a middle contract, instead of a franchise tag and they will draft at least one QB from the current crop, keeping an eye on others as available.  The McCown situation is not a permanent answer, but little more than a testament to Trestman.  A franchise QB is needed, but backups, with the proper attitude & ability, are just as important.

The Bears are gonna put the tag on Cutler, simple as that. Then they are gonna send him packing, simple as that. At 31, he's no spring chicken and the wear and tear is obviously showing. I just can't see Chicago spending marquis dollars on a non-marquis guy. I wouldn't be surprised if Emery blew the whole thing up and started from scratch. Besides Forte and Marshall, a defense that is certainly on a downturn, why not?

Matthew P1

It is really hard to judge Cutler´s work at Chicago given the fact that he played behind a swiss cheese offensive line from 2010-2012, did not have a number one receiver from 2009-2011, and is now adjusting to his fourth offensive system in Chicago. All the tools are now in place. It will take some time to adjust and develop. How much he makes will depend on how Chicago finishes the season. They are lucky to be 6-4, and the defense is no longer a force. They are down a tie break with Detroit, and will most likely need to win 10 games to reach the playoffs. This means that they need to rely on Cutler to finish 4-2, and score about 30 points per game. If they do this, he will get a big contract. If not, the Cutler era may be over in Chicago. They could also finance a Cutler franchise tag, once they make the obvious conclusion that Peppers is no longer worth 16m per year.

All you need to know about Cutler: when he has a QB rating over 100, the Bears are 16-2. That includes the Lovie years, when the offense got NO support whatsoever and Jerry Angelo was drafting stiffs.

Cutler's stats over the first nine games this year are virtually IDENTICAL to Flacco's stats over his first nine games last year.

PWINGS

There are two issues that haven't been mentioned in this discussion:

1) Is Cutler the right fit for Trestman's offensive system? If so, Trestman may decide to proceed with Cutler rather than risk bringing in a new (rookie?) QB who may not be a good fit.

If not....

2) Are the Bears poised for a Super Bowl run or are they faced with an inevitable "rebuilding" due to age and injury? Given the recent retirement of Urlacher and the ages of Briggs, Tillman and Peppers, Emory and Trestman may decide that investing franchise QB money on a rebuilding team is a poor use of salary and merely prolongs the inevitable transition at QB. Cutler's performance is riddled with "if's and but's". The age of their defense is not.

George

Elephant in the room - cutler has skills and numbers very similar to JEFF GEORGE - (along with the same number of championships in his eight seasons - zero)

and an attitude to match.   Little-to-no intangible leadership qualities - Cutler is NOT worth "Flacco-money."  Bears could save $16-18 million and build a perennial playoff-contending winner with that money.

Letting cutler go would be the smarter business decision - the question is:  do Emery and the McCasky's have enough smarts and enough guts to stand up to the cutler jock-sniffers and make the smart decision?

He's an average QB at best, just look at the numbers he puts up. Even this season he's middle of the pack, and injured again.  Paying him big money is basically excepting mediocrity. If they move on they may end up being one of the worst teams in the league, but if they find the right QB they could be Superbowl contenders. No risk, no reward. 

BathazarXavier
BathazarXavier

elite talent, mediocre results. and now, at age 31, it's hard to make the case that cutler can live up to his potential, especially in light of the fact that he's been having a difficult time staying healthy over the last few seasons. sure, he's been at the mercy of a sub-par offensive line and suspect coordinators, but his decision making is a large factor in his lack of success as well. if he can hold up physically, the sky is really the limit for him at this point in his career, as he's surrounded by as much talent as he ever has been, including on the sideline. and to me, that's why you have to "pay to see the flop" on this hand, and sign him to a fair market value deal, all the while hoping he ups his game under trestman, or that emery can pick up his replacement in one of the next couple drafts.

UrsaMajor

Andrew:  Regarding your curiosity about the top tier QB's pushing for a fully guaranteed contract.  

Isn't the major (although perhaps not exclusive) reason behind signing bonuses is the fair sharing of risk between the player and the club?  For example, without some kind of bonus and or guaranteed money, the player is entirely on the hook for injury risk.  He gets hurt, he gets cut with a minimal injury settlement.  That is manifestly unfair - the club is essentially consuming him on every play, and should be sharing that risk.  I'm not saying that the club should be entirely on the hook - no one forced him to take up football as a profession, but the bonus and guarantees seem to provide a middle ground.

On the other hand, if the entire contract is guaranteed, what protection does the club have against the Albert Haynesworth's (could play but wouldn't), Cade McNown's (couldn't play), or Michael Vick's (off field behaviour precluded him from playing)?  As I recall, the Falcons didn't have much leverage to get any of Vick's signing bonus back.  This is also manifestly unfair.  Why should the club suffer for things they have no control over.

Again, it seems to me that the current system of bonuses and guarantees handles all this reasonably well.  It gives the player some protection against injury and declining skills (particularly if he is older), and the club protection from player actions.  Following that line of logic, if I were the owner or GM, it seems to me that if I were to fully guarantee a contract, I wouldn't be paying a bonus.  How many players would be willing to forego the bonus for a fully guaranteed contract?

Sign him.  Just go back to how many QB's the Bears had/tried out.  No more long lists.  Cutler is fine, his attitude is the thing to write about, in truth, the guy is smart and with Trestman will be an elite QB, sign him 3-4 year deal.

Know he alienates the Bears fans - or should I say polarizes  them  but if they get rid of him who's next ? ..QB 's coming out in 2014  are going to be gone by the 5th  player picked  in NFL Draft ..

@George @BathazarXavier Plus, at 31, he's not worth THAT kind of money. Only Brady and Manning, with a few more winning seasons AND some SB rings, could even come close to getting that much.

@schrodingerbox @FredFlintsone where did you read that?   If cutler is  "on the record" produce a link.  No way would any sane NFL qb run his mouth without his agent and say "I'll play for a LOT less than Flacco."

Lots of columnists are mentally-masturbating about 16Mill, but cutler's not "on the record" about a specific figure.  Even HE's not that dumb.

And Cutler's poor attitude has not only been substantiated but corroborated every year and at nearly every post-game presser.

Google "cutler punk jerk" sometime when you have a few HOURS to go thru all the returned links and youtube videos!
