Jay Cutler, Bears agree to seven-year deal

The question of whether or not Jay Cutler was the Bears' quarterback of the future has been answered.

Both sides agreed to a seven-year deal today and while the terms of the contract weren't disclosed, this tweet from wide receiver Brandon Marshall congratulates him on a $126 million deal.

Speaking of Bears head coach Marc Trestman, Cutler said (via the Chicago Tribune): "I'm happy to be married to him for seven more years."

When it comes to Josh McCown, Bears GM Phil Emery said that he "would love to have Josh back. He has earned the right through his play to have choices."

In Trestman's first year, the duo of Cutler and McCown led the Bears to the league's fifth-ranked passing offense (4,281 net yards). In 2012, the Bears passing offense ranked 29th in the NFL with 2,999 net passing yards.

Both Alshon Jeffery (89/1,421/7) and Marshall (100/1,295/12) give the Bears one of the league's best wide receiver duos and Matt Forte (74/594/3) is one of the league's best receivers out of the backfield.

Cutler will be a high-upside QB2 heading into 2014, but he has plenty of upside with such a talented corps of position players and within Trestman's offense.
