Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has revealed that he has no intention of leaving the Bears.

The 31-year-old quarterback has been benched after several poor performances this season, but he explained today that he wants to stay in Chicago.

Marc Trestman's decision to bench Cutler is a move that could lead to Chicago attempting to part ways with him during the offseason, but Cutler is remaining optimistic.

"I would like to stay here," Cutler revealed on Friday. "I really like it here. I love the guys in the locker room. This is where I'd like to be."

Cutler is enduring the worst of his six seasons in Chicago this year, with a league-leading 24 turnovers blighting what could have been a great year for the Bears.
