“The Jets do have some interest in Jay Cutler. And I’m told he has interest in them as well,” Rapoport said. “At this point it’s really a matter of fit. There are a couple questions the Jets have to ask themselves: Is Jay Cutler the kind of quarterback that you want in your quarterback room? They have a couple young guys who they’d like to bring along — Christian Hackenberg and cheap jerseys and Bryce Petty jersey. Jay Cutler does not always have the greatest reputation for dealing with teammates, whether or not that is reality we’re not exactly sure. But do you want to bring Jay Cutler into your quarterback room? That’s one question. It is pretty obvious, though, he is the best veteran quarterback option out there. I would expect some sort of contact between Cutler and the Jets some point soon.”
Woodhead, who spent the past four seasons in San Diego with the Chargers, suffered a season-ending ACL injury last September in the team’s Week 2 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Rapoport reports Woodhead is now fully healthy after undergoing surgery to repair the tear.
“I appreciate Jay’s professionalism throughout the process and throughout my two years with him here in Chicago,” Bears general manager Ryan Pace said in a team statement. “I will always appreciate his toughness and respect his accomplishments on the field with the Bears. He leaves here holding nearly every passing record with this storied franchise and I wish him nothing but the best going forward.”

The move represents the best of all worlds for Marshall, who can remain in the city that he loves and continue to work for Showtime as a correspondent for Inside the NFL. Moreover, it represents Marshall’s best chance to reach the playoffs for the first time in his career. The Giants also get a premier wide receiver with some gas left in the tank at a fantastic market value. After having spent lavishly in free agency in two of the last three springs, general manager Jerry Reese knew he had to be frugal but still make an impact.
“Also at this point in my career, I still believe I’m a No. 1 receiver and you can’t tell me different … but I think one thing these teams I’ve been on have always had is a mix of spreading the ball around,” Marshall said. “(I) had Alshon Jeffery on the other side of myself. Had Eddie Royal going back to my days in Denver — he had 91 catches, I had 100 catches. Eric Decker. We had a monster year our first year with the New York Jets. So it was extremely important for me to go to a place where, I didn’t want to be the No. 1. I wanted a dominant No. 1. And Odell is the biggest superstar in our business and obviously, we have a great defense so it will be awesome to see all those guys grow in Year 2 all together.”
“Darrelle Revis is one of the greatest players to ever wear a Jets uniform,” Jets owner Woody Johnson said in a statement released by the team. “His combination of talent, preparation and instincts is rare and helped him become one of the most dominant players of his generation. I appreciate Darrelle’s contributions to this organization and, wherever his career takes him, his home will always be here with the Jets.”
Thus, the ability to land Tony Romo — who, in his last full season, posted league highs in completion percentage (69.9), yards per attempt (8.5) and quarterback rating (113.2) while finishing third in MVP voting — should be enticing for many franchises that consider themselves potential contenders. (Or for those general managers out there simply pining for a large upgrade at QB.) Four-time Pro Bowl QBs don’t become available often.
“Yeah,” he said. “There’s a lot of people in that organization, not just players, that have affected my life and been a part of my life. But you have your equipment staff, your training staff, coaches that have come through, front office staff, marketing, ticketing, the kitchen staff, the operations … There’s a whole bunch of people in that building who have been around for a long time, that it’s difficult that I’m not being able to have a proper goodbye and say goodbye to those people at the office ’cause now I’m a free agent. I’ll have to call to be able to go over to the facility.
