The Chicago Bears and quarterback Jay Cutler have agreed on a two-year contract extension that runs through the 2013 season.
Acquired in a blockbuster trade from Denver in the offseason, the Pro Bowl quarterback has completed 110 of 172 passes with 1,201 yards, 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions while leading Chicago to a 3-2 record.
Jay Cutler got the last laugh.
The Pro Bowl passer, who forced a blockbuster trade out of Denver last spring and became the Chicago Bears’ first franchise quarterback since Sid Luckman, returned to Invesco Field on Sunday night and led his new team to a 27-17 preseason win over the Broncos.
Josh McDaniels and Jay Cutler seemed like a perfect fit — the rocket-armed passer meets the offensive guru who turned Matt Cassel from a career backup into one of the league’s top quarterbacks.
Instead, McDaniels begins his coaching regime with the Denver Broncos by chasing off his franchise quarterback before he even saw Cutler throw a single pass.
The Denver Broncos don’t want to talk to anyone about Jay Cutler except for the quarterback himself.
The Broncos insisted Tuesday their Pro Bowl quarterback isn’t on the trading block and said new coach Josh McDaniels and his star player are scheduled to meet next week to try to patch up their strained relationship.
