Reality TV star Jay Cutler is 'probably' done with football, but isn't 100 percent sure
As Cutler prepares for a second career as a reality TV star, he addresses his future in football
Jay Cutler -- the best quarterback in Bears franchise history, , and a soon-to-be reality TV star -- is probably done playing football, but he can't say so with 100 percent certainty. At least not yet.
As E! continues to flaunt its upcoming reality TV show centered around Cutler's wife, Kristin Cavallari, Cutler has suddenly re-emerged from his presumed retirement.
