The Bears have put the cut in Cutler.
As the team reportedly agreed to a three-year, $45 million contract with former Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon, Jay Cutler asked for his release Thursday morning and it was granted, the team announced.
Although Manziel contributed greatly to his own failure in Cleveland, the team also lacked any true vision in tailoring an offense to his abilities, much like Payton has done exceptionally with Brees.

It’s also interesting to note that the Saints could have drafted a sliding Manziel to groom behind Brees. They instead took wide receiver Brandin Cooks with the No. 20 overall pick, two picks before Manziel went to the Browns at No 22. Cooks was traded to New England this offseason, giving the Saints a second first-rounder in 2017.
This time around, they can get Manziel with little cost and very low risk. At the very best, he finds himself in football again and gets developed as Brees’ successor. At worst, the Saints dump him as a fourth-stringer.
Offensive-minded coaches with successful quarterbacks, such as Payton, are always thinking quarterbacks — which is why they’re so good at their jobs. His totally ignoring what Manziel might be able do for him would have been the bigger shocker.
Perception vs. reality came into play with Elliott choosing to be a marijuana tourist in Seattle during the Cowboys’ in-season road trip to play the Seahawks. It didn’t matter if he was just being curious about legal weed dispensaries in Washington. He should have known better — and admitted it later — that just being around a banned NFL substance would make many jump to the conclusion he was already using it.
