It looks like several of the top 2014 NFL free agents are already off the market, as the Chicago Bears will be keeping several of their best players, including quarterback Jay Cutler, from hitting the free agent market:

Cutler and the Bears offense finished the season with more passing yards (4,281) and total yards (6,109) than any group in team history. Despite missing 5 games with various injuries, Cutler threw for 2,621 yards and 19 touchdown passes with 12 interceptions in his 11 starts and his 89.2 rating was a career-high.

When he was injured, Josh McCown, also stated to be a free agent, had the best season of his career, leading the Bears to a 3-2 record in his five starts while completing 66.5 percent of his passes for 13 touchdowns and just one interception.

Jennings, who’s ascended into the elite class of NFL cornerbacks, has registered  13 interceptions and 34 pass deflections over the past two seasons.

In all, 28 players had contracts that will expire in March, but this certainly helps getting the offseason kicked-off.
