Packers linebacker Clay Matthews will miss playing against Bears' Jay Cutler

Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews is apparently one of the few people sad to see former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler go.

"I'm glad I got a lot of sacks against [Cutler]," Matthews said on NFL Network's 'The Rich Eisen Show.' "I'll miss that the most. But hopefully the next in line in Chicago will be equally as willing to help me pad my stats."

Cutler was a career 2-11 in 13 games against Green Bay. He threw 22 interceptions and was sacked 38 times.

Matthews has a 8.5 sacks and three interceptions in 14 games against the Packers' NFC North rival. He has only totaled more sacks against the Minnesota Vikings during his eight-year career (10).

Cutler retired after being released by Chicago following the 2016 season. He was quickly picked up by Fox Sports to fill a broadcast analyst role.

Matthews may not be done bringing down Bears' signal callers. Chicago is set on starting former Tampa Bay backup quarterback Mike Glennon this season, who has already been sacked a whopping 56 times in just 21 career games.

The Bears signed Glennon to a three-year, $45 million contract during the offseason.
