Any rift that was in place between Jay Cutler and Ron Turner over a scholarship to Illinois that one says was rescinded and the other says was never offered is gone.
So says Cutler.
The quarterback addressed the issue Friday at his introductory press conference at Halas Hall, less than four months after the athletic director at Cutler's high school in southern Indiana made critical comments to Denver Post columnist Woody Paige.
``I think it's going to be great,'' Cutler said of working with Turner. ``I talked to him [Thursday], we talked about the offensive possibilities for a good 15, 20 minutes. We have a lot of weapons. That makes it fun. You can do a lot of different things.
``[The reported rift] was too long ago. I think it's kind of funny now at this point I'm back here, he's here. Things happen for a reason. I'm lucky to be here. I'm excited to be able to work with Ron.''
