5 Bears with nice assets

Jay Cutler apparently knows how to take a compliment.

The Bears quarterback maintained a sense of humor Wednesday when asked if it was true that he had the nicest rear end in the NFL.

"According to one person. I guess she's biased," Cutler replied with a big smile at the end of his weekly media session at Halas Hall.

The question was in reference to the tweet Cutler's former fiancee, Kristin Cavallari, delivered before Monday's game in Philadelphia.

"To the man with the best butt in football, good luck tonight @jaycutler6 ill be watching," Cavallari wrote Monday on her Twitter account, @KristinCav.

Well, let it be known that Cavallari isn't the only one noticing the Bears', er, assets. Not their posteriors per se, but other attributes that demand attention.

True, we don't get a good look at them through his socks and shoes. Yet they must be awfully impressive by the looks of his jaw-dropping moves on kick returns.

Earl Bennett's hands

Clearly Cutler can't get enough of them, as he often throws in the receiver's direction. Bennett and the QB also were teammates at Vanderbilt. Oh, the stories they could tell …
