As he enters the final year of his contract, Jay Cutler says that he will not be discussing his future in public during the season.
The Chicago Bears quarterback may well be playing his last season for the Bears, although the club are likely to be keen to keep him.
Speaking to ESPN, he said: "I haven't thought about it in a while, actually.
"I'll probably address it once in training camp, once before the season and that's kind of it. I'm not going to talk about it.
"That stuff takes care of itself. As long as we're winning football games and I'm playing well, hopefully they keep me around. If that doesn't happen, we'll see how it plays out.
"I'm not going to be distracted by it. I can't worry about it.
"I've been in this league long enough. I've seen guys come and guys go. It will work out the way it's supposed to work out."
Cutler signed in the Bears in 2009, after Chicago offered two first-round draft picks and Kyle Orton to sign the 30-year-old.
He has gone on to be a regular ever since and has posted some impressive statistics in the process, only being beaten by the leading stars in his position.
However, the Bears have only qualified for the play-offs once in the last six seasons - winning a solitary game at that stage of the competition in the process - and they will be hoping to change this under new coach Phil Emery.
Emery seems to have made an impact on the players already, with Cutler praising his management.
"I think we can be a very good offence," he said.
"I think Phil and those guys did a great job of getting us better offensively, defensively, special teams.
"I think this is the most talented team [physically] that I've been on in Chicago. So there's a lot of upside to what's happening with the Chicago Bears."
