Tennessee Titans prepping for possible Jay Cutler deal

Wonder if this puts Mariota back in play with a trade up.

That list of teams includes the Titans, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Ken Whisenhunt and his staff have started doing their research on the former Vanderbilt star and could very well be players in the Cutler sweepstakes if the Bears end up dealing him.

Before his benching, Rapoport added, Chicago planned to examine a possible trade this upcoming offseason. Cutler's preferred destination would also be Nashville, Rapoport noted.

If the Titans were able to snag Cutler, immediately bringing them some respectability under center, the move would shake up the 2015 NFL Draft and possibly reward some other bad teams sitting between the No. 2 and No. 5 picks. Tennessee currently holds the No. 1 pick and the best shot at Oregon's Marcus should he declare by the Jan. 15 deadline.

Cutting or trading Cutler, of course, would cost a small fortune. He's owed a guaranteed $15.5 million next season. An additional $10 million of his 2016 salary locks in should he still be on the Bears' roster on March 12, 2015.

If it ends up working, though, it will unite Cutler with a team that has coveted him for some time. If anything, the interest shows that Tennessee doesn't want to wait for another developmental project.

Or they're just bringing him in to hold the fort while they prep Mariota.

 

How much would they be paying Cutler?  And have we ever seen a team trade for a high profile QB then draft a QB with a top 5 pick?  Don't see it.  My guess is if they make this trade, they snag a QB in the middle rounds.

Cutler will be 32 by the time next season starts. I think with the way that awful contract is structured, they'd have to hold on to him for two more years. Makes sense.

Problem is the Bears don't have any better options.  It's not like they're in the Winston/Mariota sweepstakes and there is no FA qb who is better than Cutler even with his sh*t attitude.
