Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is being invited back to his old stomping grounds. Cutler will be inducted into the Vanderbilt Hall of Fame this week.

Cutler played for the Commodores from 2002-05, starting all four seasons. While the results were never pretty, Cutler won five games his senior season and only two in each of the other years, the captain quarterback put up gaudy numbers.

From ChicagoBears.com:

A three-year captain and four-year starter at Vanderbilt from 2002-05, Cutler set all-time school passing records with 1,242 attempts, 710 completions, 8,697 yards and 59 touchdowns.

Cutler is, without question, the best quarterback in school history. In his senior season, the future Bears quarterback threw for 3,073 yards primarily against SEC defenses. He’s had four NFL seasons where he’s failed to hit that same mark.

In addition to the NFL star, Vanderbilt will induct Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price into the Hall of Fame. The two stars are a part of the nine person Hall of Fame class. They will be honored Friday night on the Vanderbilt campus in Nashville.
