Jay Cutler finally has a reason to put some pants on again. The former Chicago Bears quarterback is joining Fox Sports as a broadcaster, moving from the pocket to the booth this fall.
Rumored for a while now as he languished in free agency—especially after Tony Romo jumped from Dallas Cowboy to blazer-wearing fella on CBS—word of the career change broke on Friday morning.
Cutler will essentially be a replacement for Jon Lynch at Fox after the former NFL player became general manager of the San Francisco 49ers. Burkhardt and Lynch worked four years in the booth together and built up a pretty solid rapport, but only time will tell when it comes to just how good Cutler actually is at the job.
