Could Jets reunite Brandon Marshall and Jay Cutler? Don't bet on it

Brandon Marshall is coming to the New York Jets, assuming he passes his physical. Could Jay Cutler be on the way, too? It's a natural question, considering Marshall and Cutler spent three seasons together with the Chicago Bears and another three together with the Denver Broncos before that. Cutler also still hasn't received a public vote of confidence from the Bears' new regime. There have been rumblings about a possible trade, but know this: Marshall's soon-to-be former quarterback won't be coming to the Jets.

Former coaches doubt Bears can win with Jay Cutler

At least 10 former Chicago Bears staffers from the Lovie Smith and Marc Trestman regimes said recently they believe the team can't consistently compete for championships as long as it fields a lineup with Jay Cutler under center. That sentiment might explain why head coach John Fox and general manager Ryan Pace remain uncommitted to Cutler as the team's starting quarterback for 2015. Deciding whether to commit to Cutler has a time element. If Cutler is on the Bears' roster on March 12, $10 million of his 2016 salary is guaranteed.
