Kristin Cavallari, the fiancee of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, said Monday that she does not want her son playing football.
Cavallari and Cutler have a 5-month-old son named Camden.
“I will try to steer Cam in a different direction, maybe a sport that isn’t so aggressive,” Cavallari told DNAinfo.com Chicago. “Maybe baseball — something where he doesn’t have to get hit.”
“At the end of the day, I think if he wants to play football, I don’t know if I’m gonna have too much control over it,” said Cavallari, who is a former MTV reality star. “You know, how can your dad be a football player and you tell them that they can’t do it?”
In his football career Cutler has suffered multiple concussions. He is not as concerned about his son playing football.
During the Nov. 20 “Jay Cutler Show” on ESPN 1000, Cutler was asked if he would let his son play football.
“It is a huge number of players that have played football for numerous amount of years and don’t have any symptoms from concussions and are leading completely healthy, normal lives,” Cutler said. “I think as a culture and as fans of football everyone got caught up into the concussion mania and awareness, it’s kind of — I don’t want to say blown out of proportion, because it is a significant issue and something that needs to be paid attention to. … There is a lot of other things I worry about for Cam other than football. I have diabetes, our food situation in America with preservatives and everything else we put into it, that’s something I worry about a lot more than him getting concussions playing football.
“So, to answer your question, would I let him play football? Absolutely.”

New Chicago Bears offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Aaron Kromer held two positions with the Saints, offensive line coach/running game coordinator.

With that in mind I went...
