Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has lined up a new job, after being released from the team earlier this year. However, Cutler won't be throwing on pads and hitting the gridiron with a new team. Instead, he'll be putting on a suit and tie to appear as a game analyst on Fox Sports.
According to a release from Fox Sports, Cutler will be joining play-by-announcer Kevin Burkhardt, analyst Charles Davis and sideline reporter Pam Oliver during the 2017 NFL season.
In a statement released via his Twitter account, Cutler expanded upon his decision, "I don't know if retirement is the right word; I don't feel that anyone ever really retires from the NFL. You are either forced to leave, or you lose the desire to do what's required to keep going. I'm in between those situations at this point in my life."
ESPN analyst Adam Schefter reported that Cutler had been in talks with the New York Jets and Houston Texans prior to making the decision to become an on-air analyst.
Let's just hope that Cutler's on-air presence has improved significantly since this classic 2009 interview conducted after he was traded by the Denver Broncos to the Chicago Bears.
