Aaron Kromer tearful : Chicago Bears Coordinator Makes Tearful Apology

Aaron Kromer’s Tearful Apology to Jay Cutler, Bears offensive coordinator stood up in front of the offense earlier this week, and offered an emotional apology for telling an NFL Network reporter in a conversation that was later reported on TV that Jay Cutler’s play has “killed” the Bears. Cutler, according to the Chicago Tribune, “shook his head” during the apology.

The Chicago Tribune reported that:

“Four sources told the Tribune that Kromer adamantly denied he said anything about the franchise having buyer’s remorse for Cutler’s blockbuster contract and assured players that portion of Sunday’s report on NFL Network did not come from him. With Cutler in the room, Kromer did admit however to being frustrated with the quarterback’s play management and expressing that to Ian Rapoport as he left Soldier Field on Dec. 4 after the fifth loss in seven games.”

“I said what I had to say to the players,” Aaron Kromer said.

One source noted that during the apology, Cutler shook his head. Another source, according to ESPN, stated that Cutler “certainly isn’t happy.”

Aaron Kromer and Cutler are expected to meet the media on Friday, NFL reported.

Cutler is currently the highest paid player in the NFL. Last January, the quarterback signed a seven-year contract worth $126.7 million with a guarantee of $54 million. Despite the Bears’ losses, Cutler is expected to have one of the best seasons of his career in terms of numbers. However, he leads the league with 21 turnovers.

The Bears (5-8) will host the New Orleans Saints (5-8) Monday night.
