Jay Cutler: I've supported Donald Trump for a while

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Bears quarterback Jay Cutler voiced his support on Thursday for President-elect Donald Trump.

“I’m happy with the [election] results,” Cutler said. “I’ve supported Trump for a while. I’m not going to dive into it. I know it’s a sensitive issue. I like where it’s going.”

Cutler was the first Bears player to publicly endorse Trump since he defeated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton on Tuesday.

Linebacker Pernell McPhee carefully avoided the subject when asked on Wednesday whether players had discussed the election results.

“I’ve been talking to God all day,” McPhee said. “I don’t know about everybody. I talk to him all day every day. I talk to [linebacker] Sam [Acho] sometimes and a lot of my teammates, but my main focus was talking to God and thanking him for the day.”
