Marc Trestman impressed with Jay Cutler
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bears coach Marc Trestman sees growth in quarterback Jay Cutler heading into this season, reports the Chicago Tribune.

"The number one thing from my standpoint is the way that he has invested in the Chicago Bears," Trestman said. "Jay has been emotionally and selflessly invested in ways that he wouldn't talk about. But he really cares about this organization and every day he's a very, very observant person and he's a very proactive person in terms of inserting himself in all areas of this building to help this organization get better. ... It has been very, very impressive to watch how he has worked intelligently and selflessly to do that."

Trestman also pointed to the analytics study general manager Phil Emory compiled on Cutler's play, while touting his quarterback's ability to grasp offensive concepts from the neck up.

"I have great respect for Jay's football intelligence and his skillset. When we came in here, we knew he had the skillset," Trestman said. "The issue was, 'Could we work together on a daily basis?' because we both love football and we want to help our football team. And the answer to that question was a clear yes."

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Bears signed Jimmy Clausen back in early June to compete for the backup quarterback job behind Jay Cutler. ESPN believes that Clausen has gained enough ground on incumbent backup Jordan Palmer to be penciled in for the part. Both will compete for one spot in camp this summer as rookie David Fales figures to make the roster as a long-term developmental project.

Bears receiver Josh Morgan, who was accused of assaulting a valet driver in April, has agreed to do community service to have the charge against him vacated, reports Comcast Sports Net.

The report says Morgan has agreed to 32 hours of community service, and they must be completed within four months. If Morgan complies with the terms of the program, the misdemeanor assault charge against him will be erased from his record.

Morgan is competing to be the No. 4 receiver for the Bears behind Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Marquess Wilson.
