The Jay Cutler NFL journey could have its final stop in the Seattle Seahawks. The Chicago Bears veteran has been the subject of various NFL rumors with sources claiming that the quarterback could be on the move soon. Will he be found donning the Seattle Seahawks uniform alongside Russell Wilson and Kam Chancellor next season?

A number of experts in the league do not think that the Jay Cutler NFL journey would end anytime soon. Some believe that the veteran is only looking for the next team that could maximize his talent before he finally hangs his cleats for good. If their analysis is to be used as reference, then a Jay Cutler contract to the Seattle Seahawks could be the perfect answer.

"A move to another team is very likely for Cutler this offseason, but do not expect him to find success quickly unless he goes to a team that already has a great structure in place on offense," predicted Matt Eurich of the 247Sports.

The Super Bowl run of the Seattle Seahawks had been cut short last NFL season. While fans still believe in the leadership of Russell Wilson, some are worried that the entire team seems to be dependent on his good health. That is, they fear that the Kam Chancellor team would see a breakdown - pretty much like the Dallas Cowboys under the Tony Romo era before Dak Prescott showed up to save them - if Russell Wilson's injuries stop him from playing.

Hence, rumors are circulating that the Seattle Seahawks are looking into a temporary fix with a Jay Cutler trade this offseason. This could work as they scour the free agent and NFL draft markets. This deal could also give the team the two things they need at the moment - a reliable backup for Russell Wilson and a cheap contract.

"(He's) one of several veterans who are still considering whether they want to play, whether they want to not play, retire, walk away," said Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. "A lot of things in play here for Jay Cutler."

What do you think? Should the Seattle Seahawks sign a Jay Cutler contract this offseason? Will the Chicago Bears star be a good backup for Russell Wilson?
