Former Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Tony Dungy joined Tuesday's edition of SportsTalk Live to share his thoughts on two of his proteges getting coaching gigs this offseason, and discuss why he thinks Jay Cutler's contract could be a bargain for the Bears.

Cutler had his best season from a statisical standpoint in 2013 and if it wasn't for injuries, the Bears could have very well made it to the postseason in Marc Trestman's first year at the helm in Chicago.

"You can't criticize Cutler's play this year," Dungy Said. "If Jay Cutler does what the coaching staff and management think he can do, it will look like a bargain at the end of the day."

Dungy also weighed in on Lovie Smith getting hired by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jim Caldwell landing with the Bears' NFC North rival, the Detroit Lions.

"They're going to not only bring winning football to Tampa and Detroit, but they're going to be role models for their players, they're going to be great in their community, I think it's what the NFL needs."
