Jay Cutler is one of two quarterback options for the Houston Texans.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Chicago Bears have finally released quarterback Jay Cutler after he requested that they do so.

With the Bears about to pay Mike Glennon a little over $14 million a year, releasing Cutler makes total sense after failing to trade him. It will free up $14 million under the cap for Chicago.

As much flack as Cutler has gotten over the years for his personality, he’s a talented player that will certainly sign with another team.

There’s some belief that the New York Jets make a lot of sense for Cutler.

One of the teams that have been linked to Cutler is of course the Houston Texans who are expected to first look into signing Tony Romo once the Dallas Cowboys release him.

I wonder which team Cutler would choose if it came down to earning more money with the Jets, opposed to less money with the Texans and a chance to win now before his career is over.

If the Texans aren’t able to sign Romo, Cutler is another great option. I’m just not sure head coach Bill O’Brien would want Cutler
