Prospective Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz met with quarterback Jay Cutler Saturday, according to a published report.

Martz met with Cutler in Nashville, Tenn., according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The Bears quarterback has met with offensive coordinator candidates during the interview process at Halas Hall, but Saturday is the believed to be the first time a candidate has traveled to meet with Cutler. The meeting could be an indication of how eager Martz is to work with a quarterback.

Vikings quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers is still a candidate for the offensive coordinator job after impressing many within the Bears organization, even though sources have told the Sun-Times that Martz is coach Lovie Smith's top choice.

Another source told the paper that the process was "complicated," fueling speculation that there may be some disagreement between Smith and general manager Jerry Angelo about Martz.
