LAKE FOREST, Ill. Don Barclay Jersey . -- If the Bears make changes this off-season, it will not be at quarterback. Chicago signed Jay Cutler to a seven-year contract Thursday, ending speculation they might make a change after five seasons of good and bad from their talented signal-caller. Cutler clearly thrived under first-year coach Marc Trestman and now has some of the best complements on offence hes had since arriving in Chicago in 2009. "Its not always been easy," Cutler said. "Theres been some ups and downs. Theres been some bad years theres been some good years. I think it makes me appreciate the moment Im in even more, with the offensive weapons we have, with the type of leadership we have from the front office, with the type of coaching staff we have with the play calling and our (offensive) install. It makes me happy Im here." The Bears also signed cornerback Tim Jennings, who has led the team in interceptions in each of the past two seasons, and guard Matt Slauson to four-year deals. Like Cutler, both players were scheduled to become free agents. General manager Phil Emery said the team and Cutlers agent, Bus Cook, completed contract discussions three days after the season ended Sunday with a 33-28 loss to the Green Bay Packers in a game that decided the NFC North title. Terms were not disclosed, but the deal for the 30-year-old Cutler is reportedly worth nearly $18 million per year over the first three years and includes at least $50 million guaranteed. "I think whenever you have two groups who want to work in the same direction and want the same thing to happen it can happen relatively pretty easily," Emery said. Cutler produced his career-best passer rating of 89.2 in 2013, although he played in just 11 games due to ankle and groin injuries. He completed 224 of 355 passes for 2,621 yards and 19 touchdowns with 12 interceptions. Emery said he was sold on Cutlers return after seeing him in Trestmans offence early in the season. "After the first three games I definitely knew it was going in the right direction in terms of him putting the team in position to win games at the end of the game," Emery said. "That says a lot about the player. I think that Jays third-down passing and fourth-quarter quarterback rating are very high and have been high for a while. He was in the top 10 in both areas this year. I think it speaks of a guy that can be a guy, a player, that is a reason you win." Still, Emery said he wanted to see how Cutler responded to some adversity. He saw it when Cutler came back from a groin strain to face the Detroit Lions in a 21-19 loss and from an ankle sprain to beat the Cleveland Browns 38-31. "How he handled the situation coming back from his second injury and the tremendous pressure that was on him because of the decision we had made to reinstate him as the starter, how he handled that as a person, pregame, game, within the game, after throwing a couple of picks, coming back and being a reason that you win the game," Emery said. "How he handled the Packers and Lions ... thats when I finalized the decision." Cutler feuded with former offensive co-ordinators like Ron Turner, Mike Martz and Mike Tice, but he has steadily climbed the franchise statistical charts and guided the Bears to the NFC championship game in 2010. Under Trestman, he seemed to gain a new lease on life. "The mindset is right and the talent in the locker room is right, so Im happy to be joining the rest of the guys, the rest of the coaches, the rest of the organization in pursuit of a championship," Cutler said. Cutler wouldnt call money the key reason for staying out of free agency, citing familiarity with Trestmans offence as a big factor. He has only been in the same offence for consecutive years a few times in his NFL career, which started in 2006. Trestman found Cutler ran his offence efficiently, even if he had a reputation as a big-play, big-mistake type of player. "Hes been through a lot," Trestman said. "I mean, part of whats brought him to this point is the scars of the last five years and the adversity that hes gone through in getting to know himself better over the last five years. I saw selflessness. I certainly saw mental toughness. When you evaluate a quarterback, you say, does he have an inventory of passes? Can he make all the throws? Does he have mobility? Is he a quick decision maker? Jay has all that." The Bears tabled a few major defensive questions, including the fate of defensive co-ordinator Mel Tucker and whether they should stick with a 4-3 scheme. Trestman and Emery did acknowledge the numerous injuries Tucker dealt with his first season. The Bears lost Pro Bowlers Henry Melton, Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman, as well as middle linebacker D.J. Williams, for big chunks of the season. "I will just tell you were going to be a younger defence," Emery said. "The draft will be focused in that area." Nor would Trestman or Emery rule out the switch to a 3-4 defensive scheme. "Everything is on the table in terms of a discussion," Trestman said. "Phil said it: Were going to get younger. Part of our decisions and how we move forward schematically will be based on the players that are in our locker room." Bart Starr Jersey . The club says its first-choice centre back "underwent medical tests on Wednesday morning" which confirmed he has injured his right hamstring. The injury was caused in the second minute of Tuesdays 4-1 league win over Real Sociedad in the Camp Nou when teammate Sergio Busquets accidentally struck Mascherano just above the knee with an outstretched boot. Kenny Clark Jersey . Dumont, a fifth round draft pick of the Canadiens in 2009, has four assists and 20 penalty minutes in 12 games with the Bulldogs this season. The 23-year-old split last season between Hamilton and Montreal, recording 16 goals and 15 assists in 55 regular season games with the Bulldogs. http://www.shoptheofficialpackers.com/Elite-Jamaal-Williams-Packers-Jersey/ . Off-Season Game Plan examines a team facing some challenging times as GM Bryan Murray tries to put together a roster for next season. Perhaps the first challenge facing Murray is that its expected he will be moving out Jason Spezza, a premier point producer who is about to enter the final year of his contract.Scoring has been an issue for Boston without one of its top forwards, but the Bruins next opponent has typically been quite generous in visits over the past seven seasons. This year, however, the Winnipeg Jets have been one of the leagues best road teams and are looking to complete a perfect three-game trip tonight with their first win in Boston in 13 tries. Viewers in the Jets region can watch the game live on TSN3 at 6pm ct. or listen to the game live on TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg, with coverage starting at 5pm ct. This Winnipeg team, however, has been a bit stronger defensively, particularly on the road. The Jets (12-9-3) are tied for the most road wins in the NHL with a 8-4-2 away mark, thanks in large part to limiting their hosts to a league-low 1.93 goals per game. Competition hasnt exactly been the stiffest in the first two games of the trip: a 4-2 win Tuesday in Columbus before Thursdays 2-1 victory over Buffalo. For coach Paul Maurice, it was another ugly road win, and hes just fine with continuing on that way. Its what were good at, Maurice said. Thats the kind of people that we have - theyre a highly competitive group and we can suffer some adversity over the course of the game and manage to survive. Bryan Little scored for a third straight game, and it came on the power play. The Jets are 3 for 7 on the trip after going 0 for 22 over their previous seven games. Theyre 5-1-0 when scoring on the advantage, but their 11.5 percent season mark is 28th in the league. Boston hasnt even been developing power-play opportunities recently with a 0-for-8 mark in five games. In goal, the Jets Ondrej Pavelec made 19 saves against Buffalo and won for the first time in six starts. Hes still got a 2.89 goals-against average in that time after beginning the season with a 1.98 through 14 games. In Boston, Pavelec is 0-6-1 with a 4.00 GAA in eight starts. That could lead Winnipeg to turn to Michael Hutchinsonn, who was originally drafted by Boston. Brett Hundley Jersey. Hutchinson has seen some increased playing time lately, and he might deserve more after posting a league-best 1.07 GAA over a 4-0-1 stretch this month. Tuukka Rask didnt follow up his Vezina Trophy-winning campaign with the strongest start to the season, but hes posted a 1.51 GAA over a 2-1-1 stretch. Against the Jets, hes 8-4-0 with a 1.98 GAA. The Bruins (13-9-1) have 11 goals in seven games and two in consecutive defeats after Mondays 3-2 home overtime loss to Pittsburgh as they try to work through the ongoing absence of David Krejci. The teams points leader from a season ago has been limited to 11 games this season and has missed the last three with an undisclosed injury. He and defensemen Adam McQuaid (thumb) and Zdeno Chara (knee) remain out, but center Chris Kelly has returned to practice after missing three games with an upper-body injury. Boston is 7-4-0 with 3.18 goals per game when Krejci plays and 6-5-1 with 1.83 when hes out, but forward Brad Marchand isnt getting too down on his teams current form. I thought we had a pretty good game overall. Thats how it goes sometimes, Marchand said. Sometimes you have bad games and you win and have good games and lose. We did get one point. We want to continue to build. That could certainly happen with the Winnipeg-Atlanta franchise having dropped 12 straight in Boston while allowing the Bruins 3.92 goals per game.
