There's no question who the Bears' No. 1 quarterback is. Jay Cutler re-signed with the Bears for seven years and $127 million, including $54 million guaranteed.
Last season, Cutler saw his completion percentage reach over 63 for the first time since 2007. He also had a losing record as a starter for the first time since 2009.
Cutler only played in 11 games last year and hasn't seen a full season since his first year in Chicago five years ago. Health will be an important factor.
At 31, the Bears need Cutler to be smarter with the hits he takes as well as where he puts the football. His interception percent has stayed steady at 3.4. Look back to 2011 when Cutler was having his best year before he got hurt; his percent was down at 2.2.
It's likely unrealistic to think a career gunslinger like Cutler can maintain a 2.2 interception percent for an entire year. However, if he can get it under 3 percent, stay healthy and manage to fire over 25 touchdowns, then the Bears are in good shape and Cutler is worth every penny he got.
