Former Bears QB Jay Cutler hopes Justin Fields is ‘next big thing’

It’s good for Jay Cutler to be back in Chicago. Very good, actually.

He’s back for an American Cornhole League tournament in Bedford Park, and six years removed from his run as the Bears’ prolific and polarizing quarterback, the welcome seems to be increasingly warm.

“I think maybe now there’s a little more appreciation for what I did while I was here,” he told the Sun-Times.

There has to be. After enduring Mike Glennon, Mitch Trubisky, Andy Dalton and Nick Foles, there’s no doubt Bears fans look back a little more fondly on the Cutler years.
