Jay Cutler says he’s “probably” retired, but NFL teams are still interested in working him out. Cutler has stayed out of the spotlight in recent months, but on the first episode of his wife’s new reality TV show “Very Cavallari,” Cutler once again indicated that he is done with football.
“I’m not really looking to do a lot of work right now,” Cutler said when asked of his post-football plans (via Andrew Gruttadaro of The Ringer). “I’m looking to do the exact opposite of that.”
After earning a fortune in the NFL and looking less-than-stellar with the Dolphins last year, we’re inclined to believe Cutler when he says he’s probably done with football. Still, you can expect his name to pop up if a starting quarterback suffers a serious injury in training camp.
Here’s more from the AFC East:
- Things could go any number of ways for Jets quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in the preseason, Brian Costello of the New York Post writes. If Bridgewater outperforms Josh McCown and Sam Darnold, Costello believes the team will not hesitate to hand him the starting job. However, if Bridgewater and McCown both play well and the Jets trust Darnold to be the No. 2 QB, Bridgewater could wind up on the trading block. If a starting QB gets hurt and that team is without a reliable No. 2 QB, they would probably consider someone like Bridgewater instead of the Cutlers of the world.
- The Jets will have some tough decisions to make at wide receiver outside of the top four, Andy Vasquez of The Record writes. Last year’s draft picks Chad Hansen and ArDarius Stewart are fighting for their jobs along with veteran Andre Roberts, who could make the cut as a returner. When all is said and done, Charone Peake, former Cowboys return man, Lucky Whitehead, and former second-round pick Devin Smith could be on the outside looking in.
