Jay Cutler’s retirement sure didn’t last long.

The former Chicago Bears quarterback signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins earlier this week.

Cutler’s deal with Miami is reportedly worth $10 million and comes on the heels of the squad losing their franchise quarterback Ryan Tannehill to a season-ending injury.

Matt Moore will serve as Cutler’s backup for the Dolphins.

The Chicago Bears have decided to bench quarterback Jay Cutler in favor of Jimmy Clausen.

NFL media insider Ian Rapoport revealed the news earlier today.

Cutler has had arguably the worst season of his career in 2014. He currently leads the NFL with 24 turnovers and has lost his last 3 starts.

The change at quarterback could very well spell an end to Cutler’s days in “ChiTown”.

That said, the Bears owe Cutler a guaranteed $15.5 million dollars in 2015, so he will be difficult to trade.

The Bears now turn to quarterback Jimmy Clausen who was drafted in the second round of the 2010 draft by Carolina.

In his brief NFL career, the former Notre Dame pivot has thrown 3 touchdowns against 9 interceptions.

Chicago fans will have to hope that Clausen can somehow reignite a Bears offense that has been non-existent for the better part of this 2014 season.

Clausen will be in tough in his first start, as he faces the leagues number one defense in the Detroit Lions this weekend.

Saints at Bears Monday Night Football Preview

The New Orleans Saints will travel to Chicago tonight to battle the Bears in Week 15’s edition of Monday Night Football.

The New Orleans Saints (5-8) and Chicago Bears (5-8) have the same record through 13 games this season, the only difference is the Saints still have a chance at making the playoffs.

New Orleans is lucky enough to be a part of the lowly NFC South division, which is currently led by the Carolina Panthers (5-8-1).

A victory in tonight’s game against the Bears at Soldier Field would catapult the Saints in to their divisions top spot.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees has had an off year to say the least. The former NFL MVP is coming off a terrible performance in Week 14, which saw Brees have a season-low 69.7 passer rating in a 41-10 home loss to the Carolina Panthers.

The eight time Pro Bowler should be able to have a better showing against Chicago’s 29th ranked defense tonight.

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears have also had an extremely disappointing season.

“Da Bears” were expected to contend for the NFC North Title this year, however, the strong play of the Packers and Lions have left Chicago as the odd man out.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has had a tough year, leading the NFL with 15 interceptions to date.

Chicago has plenty of weapons on offense, but for whatever reason, Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffrey have just failed to produce this season.

Despite their struggles, both Brees and Cutler should be able to have big days against the opposing defenses they will face tonight.

Las Vegas currently has New Orleans pegged as -3 point favorites with the over/under set at 54 points.

I think Chicago comes to play tonight and will defeat the Saints by a final score of 33-31.
