Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler could attempt an NFL comeback

Over the last couple of years, there were plenty of Bears fans longing for the days of Jay Cutler. During the Mitchell Trubisky experiment, Cutler’s years looked like All Pro seasons.

Heck, we are in fact talking about the Bears’ all-time leading passer here. Cutler played eight seasons with the Bears after the team traded for him back in 2009. After his final season in 2016, Cutler went on to play one year with the Miami Dolphins before retiring. He tops the list of all-time Bears passers with 23,443 yards through the air.

He might be 38 years old, but Cutler could definitely still lace up the cleats. There was rarely anybody tougher at the position. His arm strength was unmatched. I’m certain he’d still be able to play quarterback in this league. There’s no doubt.

When guys like Blaine Gabbert and Joe Flacco still have jobs in the NFL, Cutler’s potential comeback looks pretty feasible. He’d have a legitimate shot to make a roster as a backup, but he probably wouldn’t want to take on that role. For that reason, he’ll of course stay retired. But, man, those Cutler years were anything but boring, weren’t they?
