ESPN’s Roman Modrowski is reporting free agent quarterback Jay Cutler is “still contemplating retirement” from the NFL. 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.
