Former quarterback Jay Cutler has had an unremarkable career during his 12 seasons playing for different teams in the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft, 3 years after which he was traded to the Chicago Bears - his childhood dream team.
He played as starting quarterback for the Bears through eight unsteady seasons and although he made a number of personal records, his career with the team did not bode well. In 2017, he was released when his 7-year contract with the Bears came to an end, and he announced his retirement from professional football.
Cutler joined Fox Sports as an NFL sportscaster after retirement. In August that year, Miami Dolphins’ quarterback suffered a grievous injury, which opened up an opportunity for Cutler to make a comeback with a one-year contract with the team worth $10 million. Shortly after, he decided to retire again the following season.
Jay Cutler divorced his wife of seven years, TV personality Kristina Cavallari, in April 2020.
The two have three children; sons Camden Jack and Jaxon Wyatt and daughter Saylor James.
