Jay Cutler would “pass” on playing with the Packers

Last week, former Chicago Bears’ quarterback, Jay Cutler, was in the news, when he revealed that he was was hanging them up for a job with FOX Sports. He didn’t necessarily announce his retirement, leaving the door slightly ajar for a possible comeback.

There are still a couple teams that are unsettled at the quarterback position, plus a training camp injury could make the 11 year veteran a hot commodity, but there’s at least one team that Cutler would not play for.

Earlier today on FOX Sports 1’s The Herd, Cutler was asked if the Green Bay Packers called, because of an injury to quarterback Aaron Rodgers, would he consider stepping down from the booth to sign with Chicago’s rival to the North?

"Honestly, if the Green Bay Packers called, I'm probably not going to do it," Cutler said. "I don't think they would ever call me. But I'd probably have to pass."

So even though Cutler said on WMVP AM-1000 that, "There's no doubt in my mind that come the middle of August, September, there's going to be that itch to play. And there's going to part of me where I know I still can do it.” He can’t see himself doing it with the Packers.

Cutler, a free agent, has yet to put in his retirement papers with the NFL.
