Jay Cutler Reportedly Expected to Retire from NFL at Age 34

After teasing retirement last year before playing the 2017 season with the Miami Dolphins, quarterback Jay Cutler has reportedly decided Cheap Baseball Jerseys China to retire from the NFL at the age of 34.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Cutler’s decision to walk away from the game after 12 seasons.

A first-round pick by the Denver Broncos in 2006, Cutler announced his retirement in May 2017 and was set to join Fox Sports as part of the No. 2 broadcast group as part of a team with Kevin Burkhardt and Charles Davis.

Cutler sounded comfortable with his decision to walk away Cheap Cycling Jerseys from the game at the time.

I’m happy with where I am, you know, in my life and really in the future going forward, Cutler told WMVP-AM’s The Waddle and Silvy Show (via NFL.com’s Kevin Patra). So, yeah, we can go ahead and say it. It’s permanent.

Thoughts: This is the only projection that had Smith sliding to the Lions. Most mocks have the Georgia linebacker coming off the board in the first 10 picks. If he’s there for the Lions, yeah, you jump at the opportunity to add the rangy, hard-hitter. Plug him in at the weakside next to Jarrad Davis and you have two linebackers who don’t have to leave the field.

Mike Shanahan, who was Denver’s head coach when it drafted Cutler in 2006, felt one of the quarterback’s biggest problems during his time in Chicago was a lack of stability with offensive coordinators, via ESPN.com’s Jeff Dickerson:

All I can go by is what he did with me in Denver, and how he played and how he handled himself—and you just say,’Holy cow!’ and you are kind of surprised it didn’t work out for whatever reasons. The obvious one is the turnover in coordinators. You are learning a different scheme and a different terminology every time. That is tough on any quarterback.

There were some good moments for Cutler throughout his career. In 2010, he led the Bears to the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers before a knee injury knocked him out in the third quarter.

Cutler was always an enigma who was more interesting in theory than execution. His arm talent made him a starting quarterback for more than a decade, but he was never able to evolve into more than someone with a strong arm.
