BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) - Jay Cutler is aware quarterbacks are cashing in around the NFL. He also realizes he'll have to wait for his big payday.
Chicago general manager Phil Emery all but ruled out extensions this season for players with expiring contracts, and Cutler insists he's OK with that.
The same goes for kicker Robbie Gould and cornerback Tim Jennings, who are part of a long list of Bears whose deals are up at the end of the year.
Chicago has a new coach in Marc Trestman to go with a GM in his second season, and a big chunk of the locker room could be gone if the Bears miss the playoffs again.
Expiring contracts aside, Cutler says ``you've got to still go out and prove yourself.''
