Ian Rapoport says the Jets have been in communication with Jay Cutler.
The #Jets have been in touch with QB Jay Cutler, source said, & are keeping tabs on him. Expect a visit as they explore their options at QB— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 13, 2017
Cutler had been with the Bears since 2009 prior to his release last week when the team signed Mike Glennon.
Of the lousy quarterback options available, Cutler is one of the best. That isn’t saying much.
Even thought he might be one of the top guys available, I just don’t see how this is a fit. It would be one thing if the Jets had a reasonable path to a decent season in 2017. Looking at the current roster and the resources the team has, it isn’t easy to see how the Jets have success in 2017 with a stopgap type quarterback.
I don’t have a ton of doubt that Cutler is a better player than Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg today. I just don’t see how he would help the Jets more than marginally in the short term or at all in the long term.
