It appears to be the end of the road once again for former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Cutler is expected to retire soon. Rapoport notes Cutler will be appearing on wife Kristin Cavallari’s reality show.
The 11th overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft out of Vanderbilt by the Broncos, Cutler showed signs of improvement in each of his first handful of seasons in the league. As a rookie in 2006 he started five games, throwing for 1,001 yards with nine touchdowns and five interceptions. The following year he took over as the team’s starter and threw for 3,497 yards with 20 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. In his Pro Bowl year with the Broncos in 2008, Cutler once again started all 16 games, throwing for 4,526 yards with 25 touchdowns and 18 interceptions.
I even warned fans in 2014 about the very realistic possibility of the Lions taking tight end Eric Ebron (even though I thought reason would rule the day and Aaron Donald would be the choice).
But this year, with the flow of information slowed to a trickle, and a medical situation keeping me from attending the combine, I feel as much in the dark as I have in recent memory. And Cheap Essendon Jerseys it’s not like I can fall back on the recognizable trend of general manager Bob Quinn filling his team’s biggest need, because even that is uncertain with a new coaching staff adding variables to the equation with yet-to-be-unveiled schematic changes.
The Lions could go any number of directions in the first round. There’s a clear need for talent along the defensive line, the left guard situation is anything but settled and there’s the long-running need for a featured running back. Plus, given Matt Patricia’s affinity Cheap Google Jerseys for linebackers, and long-term needs in the secondary, those positions are also in play.
