Dangling Chad

The Bears cut QB Chad Hutchinson today after he failed to beat out rookie Kyle Orton for the starting job. Hutchinson started the last 5 games for Chicago last season, compiling a woeful 1-4 record. After Rex Grossman broke his ankle, Hutchinson was initially thought to be the leading candidate to replace him, but Orton, a fourth round pick out of Purdue, got the nod instead.

This is one more example of why mediocre players bounce around the league. Teams want players who can produce wins now, or youngsters the coaches believe can develop. The Bears already knew what Hutchinson could do - and couldn't do - so why keep him around?
