The most objective thing one could rationalize about signing Cutler is that it reunites him with Gase. But in my opinion, Cutler's signing in conjunction with the "pray for us" comment from the Ravens is a clear indication that CK's performance as a QB is being totally ignored because of his controversial stance and has nothing to with whether he can help a team and/or what it's "system" is. Who says things like that about a player (praying?). This is a business who's primary goal is to win.
    My question is...Have you seen any proof that CK even wants a job?..i`m not being sarcastic at all,i just have never heard from his camp that he is even interested
    The Big A era begins.... Tick tock

    Regarding CK's voice or position on future QB matters, I agree there is none. I also wonder why his camp is quiet. Does that mean a legal response is being considered? Maybe or maybe not.

    I personally think CK could change his unemployed situation in 5 minutes if he wanted the situation changed. CK said plenty about political views when he last gestured to the public in 2016 -- we know he can take a position! -- and the gesture turned out to be an iconic event and what football fans (and executives?) remember about CK.

    I was a surprised as anyone that Jay Cutler, another baggage-heavy inconsistent QB, was recalled to 1-year of duty for a huge sum at MIA. If JC can resurrect himself, so can CK with a quick comment to the NFL.

    I wonder what CK's agent is thinking tonight. That camp is strangely quiet. I expect certain sports media to chime in soon.
    3 days. That didn't take long. Spike Lee has offered to be CK's next unemployment spokesperson in front of NFL HQ, NYC. That backdrop only distorts CK's thesis and also probably not in a Commish & Owner appreciated way. The NFL won't be intimidated.

    No I don't even get the sensse you were trying to be. That's a fair question. And I think it's equally fair to ask if there's any proof that he doesn't. Taking both our questions into account, I would argue that given the fact that there has been contact with other teams, notably Seahawks and Ravens.....the latter of which he reportedly expressed an interest in......that these reported contacts indicates that he does want another job.

    Yeah but changed at what cost? If he says pay me $500k for one year it would take even less than five minutes. It's not that simple. Can't be.

    If CK really wants a NFL Gig again he should be putting distance between himself and this Spike lee deal...this can`t be a Good thing for his future..Billionaire are not easily bullied

    The cost is one word: fame.

    Oh I beg to differ my friend......it's about financial security for playing a high risk sport. Just one mishap at camp can ruin a season if not an entire career. We've seen this already.

    The man's silence leaves everyone guessing about his intentions and needs. The League's silence, except for Baltimore's and Seattle's limited interest, also leaves us all guessing about the man's QB shortcomings. So, until the info blackout ends, you and I are both correct to a degree. I leave it at that.

    So very true. But meanwhile what we do know is why he's the most debated free agent QB in the league given his record as a player. I too will leave it at that.
