John Fox and Ryan Pace are noncommittal on whether Jay Cutler will begin 2015 as the Chicago Bears' starting quarterback.
Fox said he met recently with Cutler but has not decided about the quarterback's future.
"We're not up against a deadline," Fox said. "My experience has always been that you need to gather the information, and in turn, you usually make better decisions. We're in that process, and we'll keep you posted."
One component of the evaluation process is simply getting to know Cutler, Fox said.
"Well, I think just getting to know him [is important]," Fox said. "You know, everybody's got perceptions. But I think that getting to know the guy, this is a relationship business, and that takes time. So I don't want to stand up here and give you a final evaluation when I'm maybe a quarter through the test."
