Cutler has pinpointed Geno Atkins as a key player in the Bengals' front seven and said that he intends to pass the ball quickly.
"We're going to get rid of the ball quick," Cutler told the club's official website. "You don't really want to give Atkins or any of those other guys a lot of time to work into the second moves because they get to the quarterback.
"They get to the quarterback a lot and they show you different fronts, which makes it more difficult, trying to figure out who's who. So we've got to be on it with our protection game and then on the outside guys have got to get open quickly."
Cutler threw for 3,033 yards last season.
