Cutler: offense making 'big steps'

Jay Cutler spoke to the media Wednesday for the first time since training camp practices began last Thursday. Here are five things we learned from the Bears quarterback:

Cutler is pleased with how the offense is progressing, but he conceded that Wednesday's practice wasn't the unit's best since arriving in Bourbonnais.

"We're getting there," Cutler said. "I thought today was a kind of a half step back after the off day. We started off fast, but didn't end that well. The o-line has played really well in the five, six, seven practices we've had. Receivers have kind of been up and down a little bit. But overall I think we're definitely making some big steps."

Fantasy Impact: 

Among the things Cutler mentioned was wanting Kevin White to use his speed more and how Alshon Jeffery has looked good despite leaving practice today with muscle tightness. He added the stars of the camp have been the offensive line and the holes they've made for Jeremy Langford and Ka'Deem Carey. Cutler has the weapons around him and could have fantasy value considering his ADP of the 17th round.
