How a Jay Cutler bet won Devin Hester $1000 off Julius Peppers

Reader, this blog has it all. Jay Cutler? Devin Hester? Brandon Marshall? JULIUS PEPPERS?! This blog has something for the whole family. On a recent episode of Bleacher Report's Untold Stories With Master Tesfatsion, Hester dove into *quite* the practice story while shooting pool with Tesfatsion. The entire video is worth a watch, but here's the best bit:

I'm on the sideline, we're in practice, right? They're doing pregame, warmup, tossing and throwing the ball. Jay Cutler and B. Marshall get into it. B. Marshall yells out, 'I made you!' you know what I mean? 'If it weren't for me, you wouldn't be Jay Cutler! All these Pro Bowls and stuff, you got this cuz of me!' I was looking at Julius Peppers, he's looking at me. I say, 'Listen here, we finna make a bet. I say, I bet you Jay Cutler throws B. Marshall the ball. If he throws him the ball, you give me $50. If he doesn't, I'm going to give you $100.' That's how confident I was. I said, 'I know how this practice finna go. He mad at Jay, but Jay Cutler finna give him the ball the whole practice' ... we stopped betting. The betting stopped. We stopped the bet at 21 passes. He threw 21 passes to B. Marshall. 21 straight.

This is great. Let Devin Hester tell more crazy stories about Jay Cutler. The legend only grows.
