Jay Cutler thinks Kevin White is “going to be something special”

Thanks to a leg injury that kept him out for his entire rookie season, the Bears have waited a long time to get wide receiver Kevin White into their offense.

The feeling around the team is that White is going to prove to be worth the wait. He drew positive reviews from his position coach during offseason work and quarterback Jay Cutler thinks the sky is the limit for White once he has a full grasp of the offense.

“He’s got a lot of things he’s processing, thinking through,” Cutler said, via ESPN.com. “I think for anybody taking a year off football, jumping back into it is going to be hard. A rookie missing kind of that vital year, where you learn so much that first year jumping into that second year, it’s a big miss for him. But he’s so physically gifted I think he’s going to make it up really, really quickly. It’s just a matter of him letting those athletic gifts come through and him getting comfortable with the system and the verbiage and the splits and everything else that he’s going to learn, and being at a place where he doesn’t have to think and can just go out and play football. I think once we hit a fast-forward button and get to that point, he’s going to be something special.”

White says that he and Cutler have spent a lot of time working on their chemistry, something that should speed up the learning curve for White as he prepares for the season. With Alshon Jeffery on the other side, the Bears will be well equipped at wideout as long as everyone is healthy and on the field.

  1. Same story w/ Jay every year; this is his year has talent to play with now et al. Jay would be a laughing stock even with Rice on one side and Moss on the other.

  2. He is shredding the Bears DBs in practice, but then again, it’s the Bears DBs. A couple of preseason games will give a much better picture of how far along he actually is.

  3. Why doesn’t he already have all the verbiage down?
    He should know the playbook and everything else mentally. The year on the sidelines should have hime well prepared.

    Yeah you’re right because these stats are certainly a laughing stock from 2012 to 2014 when Alshon and Brandon were considered one of the top duo WR cores with Jay Cutler those years: (includes time missed from injuries)

    Brandon Marshall : 3,524 yards 31 TD’s

    Alshon Jeffery : 2,291 yards 20 TD’s

    Jay Cutler : 9,466 yds passing 66 TD’s

  5. I see the Bears going worst to first in the NFC North. I know the Packers and the Vikings are the popular pics in the north, but it Chicago’s defense can do what is hoped to do. The Bears will be this year’s surprise team if they can stay healthy.
