Jay Cutler could give Chicago Bears small discount on next contract

US PRESSWIRE

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler would consider taking a "hometown discount" to remain with the Bears in the future.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said he would consider giving the Bears a "hometown discount" to remain in Chicago when he signs his next contract. Cutler has one year left of a five-year deal and is due $8.47 million in 2013.

On his radio show on Monday Cutler said he could consider taking less money in order to help the Bears bring in more talent and expressed a desire to stay together with Brandon Marshall. Cutler said, "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 also said he has made plenty of money in his career and his focus is more on winning than making money. Cutler has begun negotiations with the Bears, but it is expected that contract talks will not reach full swing until the offseason.
