General manager Phil Emery announced quarterback Jay Cutler signed a seven-year contract with the Chicago Bears on Thursday.

“Very excited,” Emery said, “to have Jay for the long-term.”

Cutler is now tied to the Bears through 2020.

According to Fox Sports’ Alex Marvez, the contract averages $18 million over the first three years. Cutler turns 31 in April and was 5-6 as a starter in 2013.

“We’re here to win championships,” Cutler said. “Not to make so-and-so amount of dollars. Whether it’s $15 million or it’s $22 million, it’s hard to spend all that in your lifetime.”
