    The #Bears have restructured Jay Cutler's deal. 5 million converted to signing bonus. His cap hit for 2014 is now $18.5 million.

    Jay Cutler’s new $5 million signing bonus is prorated over the first five years of his seven year deal.

    Must mean an extension for another Bear player or possibly another big free agent signing.

    Hmm besides a Jared Allan which I think we are full of DE's? Who or what would it be?

    I was hoping they wouldn't have to do this but we'll see what's behind it. Rookie pool maybe?

    Not many free agents left worth big dollars. DeSean Jackson WR Eagles, Jared Allen DE Vikings, and maybe Chris Clemmons FS Miami, Mark Sanchez, Thomas DeCoud FS Atlanta, and Knowshon
    Moreno RB Denver. Allen and Clemmons would make sense, Decoud not at that price range I do not believe. So maybe its several guys. Cant see us giving it to a QB when we did not give it to McKown and we do not need a big time receiver so.. Should be interesting.

    I could see Clemmons but with the influx of safeties,FA, and the draft pending I thought they would wait.
