I am seeing hilarious reports of the Bears trying to trade Cutler, like this. It is the worst-kept secret in pro sports that Da Bears want to dump Cutty since they only have a small charge against the salary cap and can walk away from the 2017 and 2018 years on the contract. If they could get anything for him, like a late round draft pick, that’s better than nothing.
The problem is, any team who would pick up Cutler would also need to pick up his contract and pay him big money. However, if the Bears cut him, then that team would also have the opportunity to negotiate with Cutty as a free agent and (presumably) pay far less.
So it seems like only an idiot would give up a draft pick to the Bears for the opportunity to take on Cutty and his contract. But good luck to Pace for trying.
