Chicago Bears Make Change at Quarterback in Free Agency
Mike Loftus created MLE Merchandising & Sign Solutions in 2002, and under his leadership the company now generates more than $25 million in annual revenues. When he isn't assisting MLE's clients with the company's portfolio of branding services, Mike Loftus enjoys watching his favorite NFL football team, the Chicago Bears.
After eight seasons with Jay Cutler as the team's starting quarterback, the Bears will begin the 2017 National Football League (NFL) season with a fresh look under center. Chicago released Cutler on March 9 and, the following day, signed free agent Mike Glennon to a three-year, $43.5 million contract. A third round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2013, Glennon has a career 5-13 record through his first three seasons in the league. He started 13 games for Tampa Bay in 2013, but appeared in just eight games over the next two seasons. He has thrown 30 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.
Though Cutler failed to lead the Bears to a Super Bowl, he finishes his career with Chicago as the team's all-time leader in nearly every passing category, including touchdowns (154), passing yards (23,443), and completions (2,020).
