Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will head into the offseason as the team's No. 1 quarterback on the depth chart, but head coach John Fox said there will be an "open competition" at the quarterback spot between Cutler and QB Jimmy Clausen during training camp and offseason workouts. The current coaching staff and general manager Ryan Pace have nothing vested in Cutler, and they've made it clear that money isn't the sole driver of their decisions.
Fantasy Tip: We find it hard to believe that Cutler won't eventually win the job over Clausen, who Fox also coached with the Carolina Panthers. Cutler will have to earn it, though, and his leash may become short during the season if he struggles. The loss of one of his favorite targets, Brandon Marshall, may hurt Cutler's overall production, too. Bottom line: Cutler is a QB2, at best, with room to move up if he works hard and gets himself in the good graces of his new staff.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler seemed to lack confidence last season, according to head coach John Fox. "I think maybe he got to the point where he lacked confidence a year ago. To build that back up, it's going to take time, daily. It takes trust, like any relationship."
Fantasy Tip: Cutler has been the recipient of much criticism during his tenure in Chicago, and that hasn't stopped this offseason. Brandon Marshall has left town and a new coaching regime has moved in, likely lessening Cutler's fantasy value to a certain extent. That doesn't mean he still doesn't have QB1 potential for 2015. That being said, it's risky to draft Cutler as a starting fantasy quarterback.

Chicago Bears DE Ray McDonald will be held accountable for his off-field actions after signing a one-year deal with the team, according to head coach John Fox. McDonald was released last year by the San Francisco 49ers after he was under investigation on suspicion of sexual assault, and the case remains open. McDonald received a strong recommendation from defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who worked with McDonald in San Fran.

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears LB Mason Foster signed a one-year deal Tuesday, March 24. Financial terms were undisclosed. Additionally, a fully healthy Foster, who separated his shoulder last season, is expected to be a favorite to start at middle linebacker.
