Bears' Jay Cutler: Will likely be able to pass physical in March
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cutler (shoulder) is expected to be healthy enough to pass a physical in March, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Since undergoing surgery on a partially torn labrum in his right shoulder on Dec. 3, Cutler has been committed to rehabilitation. Along the way, Jeff Dickerson of reported in early January that Cutler was ahead of schedule in his recovery effort, and Rapoport's sources lend credence to the situation. More pressing for Cutler is where he'll be suiting up in 2017. The Bears have opened trade talks for the 11-year veteran, but the fact that Cutler has no guaranteed money in his current contract could complicate matters if his landing spot is unsatisfactory. By all accounts, though, he's played his last down as a member of the Bears.

Bears' Jay Cutler: Time in Chicago coming to a close?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears have started to explore potential trades for Cutler, Jeff Darlington of ESPN reports.

Cutler suffered a sprained thumb in Week 2, forcing five consecutive absences. Only Brian Hoyer's broken left forearm in Week 7 allowed Cutler another chance to operate under center, but he made three more appearances before requiring season-ending surgery to repair the labrum in his right shoulder. If Cutler is indeed getting shopped, his Bears resume will show four touchdowns versus five interceptions, while completing 59 percent of his passes in his age-33 campaign. Because he has no guaranteed money remaining on his contract, the Bears may have difficulty unloading Cutler on a team in a less desirable situation, as he could opt to sit out or retire, per Darlington. No matter how things unfold, Cutler's time in Chicago has almost certainly come to a close.

Bears' Connor Shaw: Returning to full strength
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaw (lower leg) expects to return in time for OTAs, The State reports. "I'm getting the strength back. I'm back running and throwing, so taking it day by day and getting better every day," the quarterback said.

Shaw missed the entire 2016 campaign due to a broken leg suffered in the preseason. When healthy, he'll enter a fluid Bears quarterback picture. Not only is Jay Cutler (shoulder) facing an uncertain future with the organization due to his underwhelming on-field performance since signing a seven-year, $126 million contract in 2014, but the other two names above Shaw on the depth chart, Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley, are both set to be unrestricted free agents. Shaw and No. 5 QB David Fales, on the other hand, will be restricted free agents. Further complicating matters is the likelihood of the team selecting a quarterback in this year's draft. All in all, at this point in time it is anyone's guess what the future holds in store for the 25-year-old.

Bears' Zach Miller: Making progress in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is progressing well in his recovery from a fractured Lisfranc in his right foot, CSN Chicago reports. "Everything's going great. I'll be ready when we get back in April," Miller said recently. "Everything's going according to plan, ahead of schedule. ... You just gotta put in the time and the work, and when it's time to get back in April and go through OTAs I'll just build on that and work towards getting ready for training camp."

Miller confirmed the nature of his season-ending foot injury for the first time and, by proxy, what wiped away his entire 2014 campaign. Meanwhile, he set career highs in receptions (47), targets (64), and yards (486), while reaching the end zone four times in 10 games before the ailment forced him to the sideline. If he indeed fulfills his expectation and takes part in the offseason program, he'll very likely retain his role as the Bears' top tight end, though the team could strike in what's expected to be a TE-heavy draft class.
