While much of the speculation about NFL broadcasters potentially getting new jobs has centered on Tony Romo in recent weeks, another ex-quarterback could be looking to get into the media game.
According to Bobby Burack of The Big Lead, former Chicago Bears and Miami Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler has met with ESPN and CBS about potential broadcasting jobs. There was no indication whether he would join either network or what his role would be if he did.
It’s largely forgotten now that FOX had actually hired Cutler to be part of its No. 2 NFL broadcasting team before he changed his mind and decided to play one final season. He hasn’t actively pursued that career again since then, but that may be changing.
Cutler’s skills as a broadcaster are highly rated within the industry. It’s possible he could be a backup option for ESPN on a revamped “Monday Night Football” if the network is unable to woo Romo away from CBS.
