Bears coach John Fox: Team evaluating quarterback Jay Cutler
In six seasons with the Bears, Cutler has led the Bears to the playoffs only once.
Fox was clearly tired of the questions about Cutler near the end of his media session.
“So we’re going to ask this about eight different ways?” Fox said.
Fox instead said that the team was evaluating Cutler and that the team does not have a deadline on deciding his future with the team.
“I don’t think there’s any question there’s ability and talent there,” Fox said. “There’s a lot more that goes into that. We’re evaluating that as we speak. I don’t want to stand up here and give you a final evaluation when I’m maybe a fourth through the test."
Cutler, 31, set career highs in completion percentage and touchdown passes in 2014, but he also tied for the league-lead in interceptions thrown.
Cutler said before the season ended that he had no idea about his future with the team even though he signed a seven-year, $126 million deal last offseason.
