Jay Cutler Retires From NFL To Become Sports Broadcaster

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler announced his retirement from the NFL to join Fox Sports as a game analyst.

Cutler’s official statement read, “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.”

He continued to say, “Words can’t express how grateful I am to everyone who helped me along the my journey. I started playing tackle football at the age of 10 and was so lucky to have supportive parents and great coaches along the way that made my path possible.”

Cutler played 11 seasons in the NFL.

The decision comes a month after Tony Romo retired from the Cowboys to join CBS Sports as its lead NFL game analyst beginning with the 2017-2018 NFL season.
