If you need a lesson in Supply & Demand, check out the Bears troubled history at quarterback. After paying a King’s Ransom in draft picks to get Cutler from Denver, the Bears were forced to pay Cutler last year and he held them over the coals for the richest deal in the NFL.
If you can overlook Cutler’s league-worst body language, it’s impossible to overlook his lack of production. Cutler’s has arguably the best duo of wide receivers in the NFL to throw to, yet hasn’t topped the 3,666 passing yards he had in his first season with the Bears. After three straight seasons where he didn’t miss a start, Cutler has failed to complete a season since his first with the Bears, bringing his toughness into question. After 14 games of his reign as the highest paid player in the league in 2014, Cutler was benched in favor of career backup, Jimmy Clausen. Jay Cutler has a 2015 base salary of $15,500,000, so he’s the favorite to lead this list next season if he isn’t cut by the Bears in the offseason.
