Jay Cutler Says His Wife Forced Him To Take $10M To Play For Dolphins; She Didn’t Want Him Around The House
After failing to get any calls or job offers throughout the offseason, Jay Cutler was content on a life without playing football as he was slated to go into broadcasting, like many other former players have done before him.
Then everything changed last week when Ryan Tannehill went down with an ACL injury and Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, who worked with Cutler in the past, came calling and begging for him to sign with the team.
Cutler revealed that it was ultimately his wife that had to talk him into signing a contract, because he was mentally finished with football.
“Jay Cutler said Monday that he went “back and forth” on whether to remain in broadcasting or sign with the Miami Dolphins, but his wife, TV personality Kristin Cavallari, ultimately talked him into continuing his NFL career.
“The last four months I’ve been in a different mindset, getting ready for the Fox deal,” Cutler said. “I was pretty good with where I was in my life; I was around the kids a lot and felt pretty content. So I went back and forth on this. My wife talked me into it more than anybody else. … I think she got tired of me being around the house.”
At least he is honest. This is going to be a very interesting season for the Miami Dolphins.
