The Bears Have Benched Jay Cutler in Favor of Jimmy Clausen
Jay Cutler has not been the most popular person in Chicago lately, and now the former 1st round quarterback is being replaced with former 2nd round pick Jimmy Clausen.
The news broke early Wednesday night by ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Cutler has had a forgettable 2014 season. He has connected on 66.1% of his passes, and has turned the ball over 24 times this season between interceptions and fumbles. With the move, all indication would be that the Bears are looking to move away from Cutler regardless of his guaranteed contract next year. He is the highest paid player in the NFL this season.
Chicago is currently 5-9 on the season with games against Detroit and Minnesota left.
