Eisen: Cutler still a hot topic during Super Bowl

This week, The Dan Patrick Show is airing live from the Super Bowl in Dallas and the conversation on Monday again turned to Jay Cutler. The NFL Network's Rich Eisen weighed in with his thoughts on the Bears QB.

Bigger interview: Super Bowl QBs or Jay Cutler?

Eisen: "This week? Jay Cutler. If Jay wants to actually open up, I think if he really wants to have a say to counteract all the things that have been said by his colleagues and all the things that have been said by the media. I think he should, I think he's got to."

Does Cutler care?

Eisen: This is why everyone is wondering, a guy with a resume that screams 'tough guy', a guy that screams like 'I care'. He was an option quarterback at Vanderbilt his first year and he excelled at it. Vanderbilt, you've gotta be smart to go there. It just strikes me, it just shows that he doesn't care about his perception problem.

The Dan Patrick Show can be seen Monday-Friday from 8:00-11:00 a.m. on Comcast SportsNet.

Scouting Report:

"Outstanding leader and athlete with an ability to rush the passer from outside or inside. Has produced against the run and pass thanks to his strength, agility, elite hand usage, and plus footwork. He might not be the cleanest fit inside as a full-time tackle for some teams, but his talent should trump any size concerns.

Alshon Jeffery spurned ESPN's Adam Schefter after getting free agent contract advice

This is an enlightening glimpse into the craziness that is the world of NFL free agency.

The MMQB published a longform recap of 24 hours in the life of ESPN's Adam Schefter at the start of NFL free agency and apparently it also included a moment where he advised Alshon Jeffery on the receiver's contract situation.

Before Jeffery signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, the former Bears wideout called Schefter to see what the market was like for receivers:

But here's the kicker:

The MMQB circled back on the news later and Jeffery never called Schefter back, instead giving the news to Schefter's ESPN colleague Josina Anderson to break about the Eagles deal.
