Chicago Bears Keep Quiet On New Contract For Jay Cutler

With his star quarterback set to earn $7.7 million in base salary for the upcoming season, Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery continues to remain elusive about whether he's exploring a new contract for veteran signal-caller Jay Cutler.

Emery spoke with ESPN100's "Waddle & Silvy Show" on Tuesday and completely deflected any questions about Cutler's deal, which is set to expire in 2013.

"Any and all contracts will be kept private," Emery said. "I think that is a very private issue between a club and a player, and will remain that way."

Although Emery and the organization remain steadfast in their belief that the 29-year-old Cutler is capable of bringing a Super Bowl title back to the Windy City, it's clear that the team isn't necessarily concerned with his long-term security at the moment.
