Chicago is releasing its veteran quarterback.
Jay Cutler is being released by the Chicago Bears and will become a free agent, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The Bears are signing free agent quarterback Mike Glennon to a big contract and reportedly plan on taking a QB in the upcoming draft, so the parting of ways with Cutler isn’t really surprising.
