Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is still heartbroken over the fact that he was unable to meet Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Johnny Manziel at the Peyton Manning Passing Academy this past weekend.
Cutler, who decided to learn at the Manning Academy this summer so he could work on his running and throwing skills, was excited beyond belief when he heard he would be tutored by Manziel in his break-out sessions. A source close to Cutler was quoted as saying “Jay was all set to get Manziel’s autograph on his Bears cap and jersey, as well as ask for help with his footwork and third down signal calling.”
Upon being told that Manziel was suffering from dehydration and needed to get home to rest, Cutler offered up his sympathies by pointing out that he had seen thousands of people suffering from dehydration on Michigan Avenue after 1:00 A.M. and it was no laughing matter. Later on in the day, when Cutler was told that two time Super Bowl winning quarterback Eli Manning would lead his breakout sessions instead, Cutler pouted.
“It’s just not the same,” he said.
According to Cutler’s wife, the QB is taking this news doubly hard as he found out that his $200 deposit was non-refundable, no exceptions.
