Jay Cutler says he is ‘probably’ retired from football
Jay Cutler had seemingly made up his mind to retire from football and begin a career in broadcasting a year ago, but that changed when Ryan Tannehill was ruled out for the 2017 season. While Cutler says he is more than likely done playing now, the veteran quarterback is not ruling out a situation like the one that landed him in Miami last summer.
In a preview clip from Cutler’s wife Kristin Cavallari’s show, “Very Cavallari,” Cutler stops short of saying he is definitely retired.

“I mean, I can’t say 100 (percent),” Cutler said. “Probably.”
Cutler said he won’t know for certain until September, which seemed to annoy his wife.
“You have to realize how many sacrifices I have made over eight football seasons that we’ve been together,” Cavallari said. “You need to support what I have going on. This is my football. This is my turn.”
Cutler and Cavallari have three children together, and Kristin made it quite clear in a social media post last year that she is ready for Jay to call it a career. Her thoughts on the subject haven’t changed, and she is likely to get her wish this offseason. Cutler did not play well for the Dolphins last season and is unlikely to find any teams that are interested in signing him.
