Jay Cutler retires, will become FOX Football Analyst

John Dempsey, WLS-AM 890 News

Former Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler is going to be trading his helmet for broadcast headphones. Cutler is announcing his retirement and will be joining FOX Sports as a football analyst, working on a team with Kevin Burkhardt and Charles Davis.

Fox Sports president John Entz issued a statement saying “We’re thrilled to welcome Jay to the Fox Sports family. We’re very excited about the potential he brings to the booth and are looking forward to hearing his analysis during what is sure to be another great season of the NFL on Fox.”

The Bears released Cutler in March after eight years with the team. In that time the Bears compiled a record of 52 and 52. The 34-year old Cutler left as the Bears all time leader in pass attempts, completions, and touchdowns.

Cutler back to watching after going through limited practice

Gene Chamberlain, Associated Press

(LAKE FOREST) Although Chicago Bears coach John Fox is back at practice after a day away because of illness, his starting quarterback isn’t participating.

Quarterback Jay Cutler had practiced Wednesday on a limited basis for the first time since suffering a thumb sprain Sept. 19 but did not practice on Thursday.

As a result, Brian Hoyer continues to run the offense.

The Bears (0-3) are also without their top two running backs and rookie Jordan Howard appears to be the starter for Sunday’s home game against the Detroit Lions (1-2).

Listen to Dionne Miller discuss this with John and Ray on Friday morning here.

9-20-16 – John and Ray In 60

It was a night to forget for the Bears. Jay Cutler’s struggles and subsequent injury put an exclamation point on an embarrassing 29-14 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Meanwhile, Suspect Ahmad Khan Rahami is being questioned about the NY and NJ bombings. Sources say he is also believed to be linked to pipe bombs found in a backpack in NJ.

Also, a lifelong Cubs fan made a special trip to the Friendly Confines with his family during what may be a historic season. He’s 82, suffers from Alzheimer’s, and served as a bat boy 60 years ago.

Plus, Ray’s son is a high school senior, and received some rules for the annual Homecoming dance that happened last weekend. The typical “once you leave, you can’t come back” and “follow the dress code policy of the school.” Though there were some new rules that neither John nor Ray had seen before, including:
-No “sexually explicit dancing such as front to back dancing, grinding, twerking, or any other type of dancing which could be construed as vulgar or provocative.”
-Efforts to coerce another student to dance is harassment
