Bears Release Jay Cutler, Jets Interested In Signing Him

Jay Cutler has been cut by the Chicago Bears after asking for his release, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. With him now on the open market, the New York Jets have expressed interest in signing him.

Chicago was expected to part ways with Cutler this offseason, and it was only a matter of time after they agreed to sign Mike Glennon to a three-year, $45 million deal. Glennon would've gone into the season as Chicago's starter even if Cutler was still on the roster. 

New York is also in the market for a quarterback, but have missed out on Glennon, Tyrod Taylor and Brian Hoyer - all of whom were targets for them. Now, it appears they have their sights set on Cutler.

Injuries limited Cutler to just five games last season, and he passed for 1,059 yards with four touchdowns and five interceptions.
