Inside Slant: Jay Cutler’s onerous contract and five others like it

Tension rises with every turnover, anxiety sets in with each shrug and downright hysteria descends as the Chicago Bears’ fan base concludes there is no way out of the cycle anytime soon.

Quarterback Jay Cutler’s contract, extended in January, would require a cash payout of at least $10 million and as much as $26.5 million if he is released before the 2016 season, depending on the timing. The Bears’ history of what we’ll politely call “financial efficiency” makes them an unlikely candidate to pay Cutler eight figures on his way out.
