Terrell expressed his fondness for Cutler in a Chicago Redeye interview stating he would lose his manhood to have played his career with Cutler at the helm.
“I would have cut off both my balls,” Terrell said laughing. “I’d give those up, no problem. You could have neutered me. I woulda been neutered with a smile. (Expletive), man, for real.”
Terrell, an University of Michigan standout was drafted in 2001 in the first round with the eighth pick by the Bears. He attributed his unsuccessful NFL career to the inconsistent Bears quarterbacks regimen in the Redeye interview.
“Jay Cutler is without a doubt a top 10 quarterback in the league. No doubt about that. His knowledge of the game, his pocket presence makes him that. I never witnessed that in the NFL. I could have with Rex, but I had limited time with Rex.”
Terrell did have playing time with Cutler in 2006 and 2007 when he was with the Denver Broncos after being released from the New England Patriots in 2005.
