I just felt this was worth making note of... considering that Jerry Angelo's #1 off-season rant was:
"You win because of the quarterback. We have to get that position stabilized. We're fixated on that.
We know it's the most valuable position on the football team. We've gone through so many scenarios at that position we can write a book, moreso on what not do."
-- Jerry Angelo (12.30.2008)
Well Mr. Angelo... if you're really fixated on stabilizing the QB position as you claim... then it would probably be of interest to at least inquire about Jay Cutler. You can sell him on the Cutler-to-Bennett tandem in Chicago.
UPDATE: Here's the details of Cutler's contract
Pay close attention to the $4 million roster bonus he's due in 2010, and the $12 million roster bonus he's due in 2011. He will no doubt have either a new contract before those bonuses kick in, or be on a different team... willing pay that bonus.
7/27/2006: Signed a six-year, $47.86 million contract. The deal contains $11 million guaranteed, including a $1.7 million signing bonus. 2009: $1.035 million (+ $100,000 workout bonus), 2010: $1.4225 million (+ $4 million roster bonus), 2011: $1.81 million (+ $12 million roster bonus) 2012: Free Agent. 45% of the deal's max value is performance incentives. Among them is a $1.95 million escalator for any year of 2006-2010 that he finishes in the top five in any of the NFL's major passing categories, as well as a $4 million bonus for taking 70% of the snaps in 2009. There also is a $500,000 bonus available 2006-2010 for taking 70% of the snaps and either taking 70% of the snaps in a Super Bowl or winning a Super Bowl.
