Is Cutler a free agent?

nope

Jay Cutler signed a 7 year contract with the Chicago Bears worth $126.7 million on January 2, 2013. $38 million becomes fully guaranteed on the 3rd day of the 2014 League Year. Cutler’s 2016 salary is guaranteed for injury upon signing with $10 million becoming fully guaranteed on the 3rd day of the 2015 League Year and the remaining $6 million becoming fully guaramteed on the 3rd day of the 2016 League Year. Cutler’s contract contains roster bonuses from 2017 through 2020 that total $2.5 million. Each week that Cutler is active he will earn $156,250 of that roster bonus. If Cutler fails to attend offseason workouts his salary will be reduced by $500,000.
On March 21, 2014 Cutler converted $5 million of his 2014 base salary into a signing bonus. The move created $4 million in 2014 salary cap space.

doesn't mean he can't be cut tho

#Jets announce Jeremy Bates as their new QBs coach

Offensive Coordinator Jeremy Bates was fired by the Seahawks by then head coach Pete Carroll on January 18, 2011. A difference in "philosophy" was stated as being the reason behind the move.

Two months later they drafted Russell Wilson.

Jason Vrable will enter his fourth year in the NFL and with the Bills in 2016 as he takes on a new role as the team’s assistant quarterbacks coach.

Vrable spent his first three seasons with the team as the team's offensive quality control coach. Vrable transitioned to working with QB coach David Lee in 2015 after spending 2014 working with the wide receivers and 2013 with the quarterbacks.

Vrable helped Bills QB Tyrod Taylor seamlessly transition during his first season as the Bills starting quarterback. Taylor, who became the first Buffalo quarterback to earn Pro Bowl honors since Drew Bledsoe in 2002, established a new franchise record for rushing yards by a Bills QB in a single season with 568 yards. In addition to providing a dynamic threat on the ground, Taylor made the Bills a viable threat through the air as his 99.4 passer rating is the second-best in team history behind only Jim Kelly in 1990.

In his time working with the wide receivers, Vrable helped lead Sammy Watkins to the best season by a rookie wide receiver in franchise history, recording  a team record 65 receptions for 982 yards and six touchdowns.

Vrable helped guide QB EJ Manuel in his rookie season in 2013, as Manuel set franchise records in both touchdowns (11) and completions (180) by a quarterback.

In his role as an Assistant QB coach, Vrable is responsible for the breakdown of film and assisting with the implementation of game plans.

Prior to joining the Bills, Vrable spent two years as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Charleston (WV). He had prior coaching stints at Syracuse and Robert Morris.

Vrable was also a former college quarterback at Marietta College

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Jets are a "possibility" to acquire Jay Cutler.

The Jets hired Jeremy Bates as their new QBs coach on Wednesday. He and Cutler have a long history together, and by most accounts, the two really like working with each other. Bates was Cutler's QBs coach in Denver early in his career when he went to the Pro Bowl, and then Bates was brought over to Chicago in 2012 to work with Cutler again. On top of Bates, the Jets also currently employ former Bears teammates Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall. It could be a match. The Bears are fully expected to release Cutler over the next month.

Bates has ties to Cutler who will likely be cut soon.  Cutler is due a $2.5M roster bonus.  He had some good years under Bates.  FWIW, Vrable was assistant QB coach for the Bills and was given some credit (at least in his bio) for Tyrod Taylor's success.

I am starting to believe the Jets may carry 9 qb's on their roster this year.
