This news from Cutler comes five years after he was hired as Fox's No. 2 analyst in 2017, but bolted the booth before calling a game in order to return and play for the Miami Dolphins. Since retiring after that season, Cutler hasn't made a move to get back into color commentary, but he has made headlines.
The 38-year-old had a very public divorce from reality star Kristin Cavallari and continued to be open in his right-wing and anti-vax views -- not just about the COVID-19 vaccine, all vaccines. Frankly, he made himself pretty unlikable, after not being really likeable when he was playing. After all, former teammate Devin Hester called him "the worst leader" he'd ever seen.
Is anyone clamoring to hear Cutler analyze games? I can't see him being much of a draw. The guy doesn't have much of a personality and appears to just be chasing the money top-level analysts are currently getting.
There might have been some novelty to Cutler calling games soon after his career, but now? I'm not sure it would move the needle.
