Many NFL players and coaches have evaded questions about the presidential election, but Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler gave a direct answer when asked for his thoughts Thursday.

Cutler said he was glad that Donald Trump was elected president, though he declined to get into specifics.

"I'm happy with the results," Cutler said in a news conference. "I've supported Trump for a while. I'm not going to dive into it. I know it's a sensitive issue, but I like where it's going."

In 2012, Cutler endorsed former Massachusetts governor and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
