Jay Cutler wants to remain with Bears

It wouldn't be a reach to suggest that Jay Cutler has been a top-five worst quarterback in the NFL this season.

With Brandon Marshall (until his injury), Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte around him, Cutler has managed to make mistake after mistake, en route to throwing 18 interceptions this season. Six interceptions have come in the past three weeks. He's had seven games where he's thrown multiple interceptions and only four games where he's been pick free.

That's led to a lot of speculation on what the Bears will do with Cutler following the season. After handing Cutler a lucrative contract, the Bears could do their part to try and trade him, though a partner to take on the remainder of a seven-year, $126.7 million contract could be difficult.

For his part, Cutler hopes he's back in Chicago in 2015.

"I would like to stay here," Cutler told reporters. "I really like it here. I love the guys in the locker room. This is where I'd like to be."

Ultimately, it won't be Cutler's call. His performance this year has removed himself from having much of a say in the process.
