“He is clearly proficient. He can transfer. He can throw. He received loads at Ohio State. He appears to have a bit chip on his shoulder, which I do not assume is a nasty factor. However like we have talked about quite a few instances, while you’re enjoying quarterback, there are a number of shifting components. They should get the road [stabilized]. They should get some weapons. … And I actually like [head coach Matt Nagy]. That is by no means been a difficulty in my thoughts. I feel he’ll put collectively a plan,” Cutler added.
