LAKE FOREST, Ill. (CBS HOOUSTON/AP) — For anyone thinking the Houston Texans might go after Free Agent QB Jay Cutler instead of drafting a quarterback to lead their team, forget about it.

The Chicago Bears have signed quarterback Jay Cutler to a seven-year contract.

The move was announced Thursday, and it came after some speculation that the Bears might part with Cutler after five years. Terms were not disclosed.

In his first season with new coach Marc Trestman, Cutler and the Bears offense set a franchise record for total net yards (6,109) and piled up 445 points, second in team history. He is the franchise leader in passer rating (83.1), passing yards (14,913), passing yards per game (222.6), attempts (2,090) and completions (1,258).

In 67 regular season starts with the franchise, Cutler has directed the Bears to a 39-28 (.582) record. The eight-year pro from Vanderbilt helped the Bears reach the NFC championship game following the 2010 regular season.
