There have been many players to leave Chicago after playing there for many seasons. Here are 10 athletes who made the jump and looked odd in other places.

10. Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler played the majority of his NFL career with the Chicago Bears. He was drafted in the first round by the Broncos but after three seasons, a big trade landed him to Chicago.

From there, he played in 102 games for the Bears. Cutler’s record in the regular season was 51-51 with 154 touchdowns to 109 interceptions. He was an average quarterback who never found success when it counted. He took the Bears to the playoffs in 2010, just to be eliminated in the NFC Championship by the Packers.

After the 2010 season, the Bears wouldn’t make the playoffs again with Cutler. He’d battle through many injuries and have multiple quarterbacks take over for him. In 2017, the Bears decided to release Cutler, who at that time had three years left on his contract.

He’d end up going to the Dolphins to play under former Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase. Cutler signed a one year deal with Miami after Ryan Tannehill got hurt. The Dolphins would miss the playoffs that season with a 6-10 record.

His last NFL win was against Tom Brady in 2017. That was Brady’s MVP season where he’d take the Patriots to the Super Bowl for the third time in four seasons. The Patriots would lose to the Eagles in that game.

Since then, Cutler has remained retired. He’ll be 37 in April, which means his career is probably over with. He’s interviewed for multiple broadcasting positions, so we’ll see how that one goes. Maybe, he’ll be on another list if he gets a broadcasting job and that career doesn’t pan out.
