It's a particularly important season for Jay Cutler, who many Bears fans believe needs a big year to solidify himself as the starting quarterback of the future. Speaking at a charity event, he addressed the importance of the preseason.
That wasn't the only appearance that Cutler made this week. Chicago fans were able to see how that arm was holding up at Wrigley Field on Saturday.
Cutler played in just 10 games for Chicago last season. Entering his fourth season with the Bears, Cutler turned 29 years old in April.
