Friday December 12th, 2014

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has accepted offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer's apology for critical comments he made to a reporter. 

"You could really feel he was sorry, the situation got the better of him," Cutler said, according to USA Today. "He was sincere."

Kromer identified himself as Rapoport's source during a meeting on Monday, the Chicago Tribune reported Thursday, and apologized to the team for the comments he made. Kromer denied saying the team had "buyer's remorse" but did admit to saying he was frustrated with how Cutler has played this season.

Kromer's comments came after Chicago's loss to the Cowboys at home last Thursday. 

Cutler has thrown 15 interceptions this season, the most since he threw 26 during his first season with the Bears in 2009.
