Jay Cutler Gets Contract Extension

Jay Cutler will be a Bear through 2013. From Dan Pompei and the Trib:

The team signed Cutler to a two-year contract extension late Tuesday that will give the Bears rights to Cutler for four years after this season. The rookie contract he signed with the Broncos went through 2011.

The deal calls for Cutler to be paid $20 million in guaranteed money and $30 million in new money for 2012 and 2013, according to ESPN's John Clayton.

Cutler has maintained that money was not a factor in his desire to be traded from the Broncos. The Bears acquired him and a fifth-round pick in trade last April for Kyle Orton, two first-round picks and a third.

By the way, it was interesting that Al Michaels pointed out on Sunday night that the 5th round pick the Bears received from Denver in the Cutler deal was used to select Johnny Knox. So when everybody rolls out the inevitable comparisons (guilty, as charged) make sure you add that.
