Cutler, 37, played in the NFL from 2006-2017. He became somewhat of a reality TV personality after his football career due to his marriage to Kristin Cavallari. Cavallari has been the focus of reality show “Very Cavallari” since 2018.
Lahren, 28, is a political commentator for FOX Nation. She previously worked for OANN and The Blaze. She moved to Nashville, Tenn. in April, which is where Cutler and Cavallari raised their family. That may have contributed to the dating rumor.
This wouldn’t be strange if not for the context. Since announcing their plans to divorce, there have been some rather unsavory stories about Cutler that have made the rounds. Apparently he’s willing to ignore them or simply doesn’t care.
Cutler and Cavallari had been married for seven years prior to their decision to split up.
Jay Cutler and his wife Kristin Cavallari announced recently that they have decided to get a divorce, and it sounds like things between the two began to sour when Cutler chose football over broadcasting nearly three years ago.
Cavallari felt that Cutler had become “lazy” and “unmotivated” since his final season in the NFL back in 2017, according to a report from Page Six. One source indicated to the gossip outlet that Cavallari was bothered by Cutler leaving a job with FOX Sports to play for the Miami Dolphins.
“She was growing increasingly impatient with him. He was supposed to take this big job at FOX Sports and have a life after football that would get him up off the couch and do something,” the source said. “Instead, he backed out — this is [three] years ago — and joined the Dolphins. That didn’t pan out well, and he was left with no TV gig until she got the show for them.”
The source also said Cavallari “views herself as very polished and put together, and [Cutler as] this lazy, unmotivated guy.”
Cutler was probably underrated as a quarterback throughout much of his NFL career, and he did make more than $120 million. It’s probably hard to become passionate about something after you make that much money playing, though Cavallari thinking Cutler was “lazy” fits in perfectly with the Smokin’ Jay Cutler image.
Jay Cutler and wife Kristin Cavallari are getting a divorce, and things are starting to get ugly as they sort through things.
According to TMZ Sports, Cavallari had a legal filing on Wednesday in which she accused Cutler of refusing to leave their home and blocking her from getting funds to buy her own place.
The report states that Cavallari went looking for a home last fall but called it off when they decided to give the marriage a last chance. Unfortunately things did not work out with their marriage, and now she says Cutler will not give her the money for a new home. The two have three children together and are also trying to work on a custody agreement.
Cutler and Cavallari have been married for seven years and were together for for 10 years. They had some relationship problems early on when they called off their engagement, but they sorted out matters and got married. Unfortunately they are now getting a divorce and going through the ugly fighting that is all too common with these proceedings.
Former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler and his wife Kristin Cavallari announced on Sunday that they are in the process of getting a divorce.
Cutler and Cavallari both issued the same statement via their respective Instagram accounts, which said that they have “nothing but love and respect for one another and are deeply grateful for the years shared, memories made, and the children we are so proud of.” The announcement indicates that the split is an amicable one.
Cutler and Cavallari began dating in 2010 and got engaged in 2011. They had relationship issues early on and called off their engagement at one point, but they got married in June of 2013 when Cutler was with the Chicago Bears. They have two sons and a daughter together.
Cutler has made frequent appearances on Cavallari’s reality TV series “Very Cavallari,” and the two became popular among fans for having a sense of humor about their relationship. It remains to be seen if any of the problems the couple was having will be featured on the show in the future.
While much of the speculation about NFL broadcasters potentially getting new jobs has centered on Tony Romo in recent weeks, another ex-quarterback could be looking to get into the media game.
According to Bobby Burack of The Big Lead, former Chicago Bears and Miami Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler has met with ESPN and CBS about potential broadcasting jobs. There was no indication whether he would join either network or what his role would be if he did.
It’s largely forgotten now that FOX had actually hired Cutler to be part of its No. 2 NFL broadcasting team before he changed his mind and decided to play one final season. He hasn’t actively pursued that career again since then, but that may be changing.
Cutler’s skills as a broadcaster are highly rated within the industry. It’s possible he could be a backup option for ESPN on a revamped “Monday Night Football” if the network is unable to woo Romo away from CBS.
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.
Cutler liked playing enough that he wants to do it again next year, though only as a starter. He may have a hard time finding a taker, as he did last offseason, but it’s clear he still loves playing the game.
Jay Cutler may have been forced into retirement if Ryan Tannehill didn’t go down with a knee injury prior to the season, but he is hoping more NFL teams will show interest in him this upcoming offseason.
Cutler told reporters on Wednesday that he wants to continue playing in 2018. However, he is not interested in holding a clipboard.
Jay Cutler asked why he would come back in 2018? “I want to play football.”
If Cutler couldn’t find a team to offer him a starting job before Tannehill’s injury, it’s going to be awfully hard for him to find work this winter. In 13 games this season, he threw for just 2,660 yards, 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. His passer rating of 80.9 is unlikely to impress many teams.
Cutler will turn 35 this offseason, and his wife recently made it seem like she would prefer if he hung up the cleats. We’re more likely to see Cutler in the broadcast booth next season than on an NFL roster.
