Cutler recruiting Plaxico

Before the offseason chaos that resulted in his trade from the Denver Broncos, Jay Cutler was preparing for another season of lucrative statistics, throwing the ball to Brandon Marshall. Unfortunately for Cutler, his new team lacks that kind of receiver, so he's making his best effort to lure one out of the waters of free agency.

According to WSCR-AM radio in Chicago as per a Vaughan McClure item in the Chicago Tribune, Cutler has already reached out to Plaxico Burress in an attempt to bring the troubled wideout to the Chicago Bears. If Burress is eligible to play in 2009, he'd provide a vast upgrade to the Bears' offense, and the team would further increase their chances of reclaiming the NFC North crown.

Asked whether Plax was an option, Bears coach Lovie Smith told the Tribune, "Every player that's available, we look into. No more than that." In the parlance of today's NFL, a non-denial means that the Bears are definitely considering Burress, but might be waiting until his legal troubles sort themselves out a bit more. Burress is still in the process of adjudicating gun charges, and further developments may not take place until mid-summer.
