Jay Cutler officially retires

Former Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has announced his retirement from the NFL.

When asked if his retirement was permanent, Cutler replied: "Yeah, I think so. Yeah. I think so," he said via WMVP-AM Chicago. "It is. I don't really see anything else happening. I'm happy with where I am, you know, in my life and really in the future going forward. So, yeah, we can go ahead and say it. It's permanent." Cutler's sudden but not surprising retirement comes just one day after the public learned of his potential venture into broadcasting. He auditioned for a role on Fox Sports NFL, a job which was offered to him and he accepted Thursday, just hours before his retirement announcement. Cutler will open the 2017 season alongside Kevin Burkhardt and Charles Davis calling NFC games on Fox.

Jay Cutler to join Fox in broadcasting booth

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting free agent quarterback Jay Cutler has agreed to join Fox Sports. He will likely announce his retirement on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Cutler will join the Fox Sports' NFL "B" team on Sundays alongside Kevin Burkhardt and fill the vacancy left by new 49ers general manager John Lynch. Although he has yet to officially announce his retirement, an announcement is expected to come Friday afternoon. Cutler, 34, has played 11 seasons in the NFL with the Denver Broncos (2006-2008) and the Chicago Bears (2009-2016). He'll finish his career with 32,467 yards passing, 208 touchdowns, 146 interceptions, a 61.8 completion percentage and an 85.7 rating.

Jay Cutler pursuing broadcasting career?

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo is reporting free agent quarterback Jay Cutler is pursuing a career in broadcasting.

Fantasy Impact

It appears that Cutler is considering retiring from the NFL and pursuing a career in broadcasting. Although the veteran signal caller has yet to retire, Garafolo said that Cutler and his reps "have spoken with network executives about football-related TV roles" and even went as far as auditioning for one. Cutler, who has garnered little interest on the open market, could ultimately retire this offseason if he can't land a starting job as playing the upcoming season as a backup doesn't seem like an option. However, the 34-year-old could wait it out until training camp and the preseason in the event a team's starter is lost to injury, in which he would then be the hottest quarterback on the market, along with Colin Kaepernick.

Jay Cutler expected to retire

ESPN's Jeff Dickerson expects free agent quarterback Jay Cutler to announce his retirement this offseason. "I would be surprised if he doesn’t call it quits," Dickerson said via ESPN.

Fantasy Impact

Cutler, who is reportedly contemplating retirement this offseason, has yet to make a decision on his playing future. The 33-year-old signal caller was released by the Bears in March and has received little to no interest on the open market. He may elect to wait until training camp or the preseason to ultimately make a decision, however, in case an injury occurs to a starter around the league -- ie Teddy Bridgewater in 2016. In that scenario, he could be signed by the club and step into, or compete for the vacant starting job for the 2017 season.

Jay Cutler 'still contemplating retirement'

ESPN's Roman Modrowski is reporting free agent quarterback Jay Cutler is "still contemplating retirement" from the NFL.

Fantasy Impact

Cutler, 33, has reportedly been contemplating his retirement from the NFL since the Bears released him in March. The 11-year veteran has garnered little to no interest in free agency and was scheduled to visit with the Jets a few weeks back. However, New York ultimately signed Josh McCown while Cutler never made the trip to the Jets' facility. If he intends to play in 2017, Cutler's lone option may be to wait it out until training camp or the preseason to sign with a new club in the event a starter is sidelined with a long-term injury -- see Teddy Bridgewater and the Vikings last season. In that scenario, Cutler would then become the hottest commodity on the open market and could easily step into a starting job as desperate times calls for desperate measures.
