The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback is expected to sign a three-year deal with the Bears.

Get free real-time news alerts from the Chicago Patch. Jay Cutler warmed up later in his career and participated in off-site training sessions with teammates, but Glennon wants to hit the ground running - now.

After the first day of free agency, the Chicago Bears lost a key part of the offense and missed out on rumored targets.

The other issue is this: Cutler might rather retire than come play for rebuilding team that probably isn't going to win a lot of games next season.

NY is also in the market for a quarterback, but have missed out on Glennon, Tyrod Taylor and Brian Hoyer - all of whom were targets for them.

That leaves Cleveland, Houston, San Francisco, Buffalo and the Jets.

In Sanchez's first four seasons he completed 1,028 passes on 1,867 attempts (55.1 completion percentage) for 12,092 yards with 68 touchdowns and 69 interceptions.

Glennon on time w/TB: "I looked at that as times to prepare for this moment".

Cutler is the Bears' all-time passing leader in terms of touchdowns and yards, and he ranks 37th all-time in passing yards, ahead of Kurt Warner, Sonny Jurgensen and Randall Cunningham.

And it seems that's where her hope lies at the moment... but at least there's hope. "I can't lose you ", Michonne tells him. Josh, what the hell is the point of Tara??? The Walking Dead still has its problem with relying on new colonies.

What are your thoughts on Glennon leaving the Bucs? He started multiple games in 2013 and 2014 before losing the starters job to Jameis Winston.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Glennon's contract is for $45 million, and according to the Sun-Times, the deal is only worth $19 million in guaranteed money.

He was recognized while eating with coach John Fox and quarterbacks coach Dave Ragone in Lake Forest on Thursday night - "I tend to stick out; there's not too many 6-foot-7, pale, balding white guys walking around", Glennon said - and had lunch Friday with his fellow signees. Hoyer is not a starting caliber quarterback and not even an average backup.

Cutler played in just five games last season because of thumb and shoulder injuries.

Before the other teams withdrew, many pundits already said the Bears were the frontrunners for his signature and that he reportedly prefers to go to Chicago as well.

Cutler is one of the league's most enigmatic players. And he was called a 'coach killer, ' with a trail of bodies including two head coaches, two general managers and several offensive coordinators.

It's not fair to blame Cutler for all of the Bears' failures in the past eight years.

Cutler's final year with the Bears ended with a 3-13 record.

Worst case scenario, Cutler and his wife Kristin Cavallari could soak up some rays in Los Angeles, maybe make that trip to Laguna Beach to blow off some steam when things start to get weird with the dysfunctional Rams.
