For now, the list of teams with a potential interest in Jay Cutler starts with…the New York Jets.
Cutler’s eight seasons in Chicago were marred by Cheap Jarome Iginla Jerseys various injuries. A shoulder injury last season limited him to just five games. Cutler also led the NFL in interceptions in 2014 with 18 picks thrown in 15 games.
Cutler was a first-round pick of the Broncos in 2006, but traded to the Bears following his only Pro Bowl season in 2008. After throwing for a career-high 4,526 yards with 25 touchdowns and 18 interceptions, he threw for 3,666 with 27 touchdowns in his first season with the Bears. But he also led the NFL with 26 interceptions in 2009, which was the only year in which he played all 16 games in a season.
Joe Maddon is still peeved about the MLB’s emphasis on player safety one day after a would-be Cubs rally ended thanks to an overslide against the Cardinals.
The Chicago manager on Sunday sarcastically railed against the rule, which dictates a double play occurs if a player slides too far past a bag.
Gotta say, this is some grade-A passive aggression by Maddon, following Ian Happ’s slide on Saturday that got the Cardinals out of a jam in the fifth inning.
You can see why Maddon might be frustrated, as he said yesterday that the slide rule has no place in the game. But it’s probably not the best look making light of league efforts to limit player injuries, no matter how mad he is.
