The Chicago Bears signed quarterback Jay Cutler to a seven-year contract Thursday, ESPN reports. No details of the deal were reported.

Cutler would have been an unrestricted free agent if the Bears hadn't re-signed him. The deal comes less than a week after the Bears lost to the Green Bay Packers and missing a chance to move into the postseason.

Throughout his Chicago career, Cutler has suffered from Rodney Dangerfield Syndrome: He gets no respect. This season, he had his best statistical year in the NFL. But some critics thought the Bears should've kept backup quarterback Josh McKown behind center after Cutler sat out a games because of injury.

Foolish. Cutler is injury prone and has illustrated it numerous time. If the Bears did not care about injuries they should have signed Peyton Manning after his neck injury and they would still be in the playoffs.
