Jay Cutler will to Re-Sign at Discount price

“I’m not gonna try to break the bank,” Cutler said, via Michael Wright of ESPNChicago.com.

Co-host Tom Waddle suggested the veteran minimum, when Cutler said “What kind of discount we talkin’?”

Waddle said: “50 percent off.”

“Ah, c’mon,” Cutler said with a laugh. “We can talk like 5 or 10 [percent off], but 50? This isn’t a going-out-of-business sale.”

When things turned more serious, Cutler said it was important to him to leave the Bears with flexibility to bring in more players.

“I want to be on a successful team, and I know that paying one or two or three players premium [salaries] hurts your chances of being able to bring in extra talent,” Cutler said. “So when we get there, we’ll figure it out. . . .

“You get to a point in your career I think it’s not even about money. You’re secure. You want to win Super Bowls.”

The two sides haven’t started talking about a new deal, but Cutler knows he made things more difficult for his agent.

“I don’t think I should even be saying stuff like this. I’m killing myself right now,” Cutler said. “I’m breaking the bank. Let’s go back; rewind. Bus [Cook] is gonna text me [saying], ‘What are you doing right now?’”

I'm sure he got a WTF text from his agent as soon as the interview aired

Probably so..... Leaving 10 million on table when agent may get 5-10% can be huge

Why he would want to stay with that offensive line is beyond me.

Didn't Brees say something along these lines?

He should take them for everything they are paying the offensive line

One of my pet peeves is reading what fans say when a player is negotiating a new contract. I'd want as much money as possible.

He doesn't. That's the point.

If over 5 years I was offered 100 mil to play in Buffalo or 90 mil to play in San Diego I would pick SD all day long. It isn't worth a little extra to be miserable and live in a place where you can't even spend your money the way you want to.

Except this scenario is more like this: if I was offered $100 million to play in Chicago, or $80 million to play in Chicago, I'd take the $100 million.
