“I don’t know if retirement is the right word; I don’t feel that anyone ever really retires from the NFL,” he said in a statement through Fox Sports on Friday. “You are either forced to leave, or you lose the desire to do what’s required to keep going.

The former Chicago Bears quarterback is a free agent after being released by the team in March, though Cutler's agent, Bus Cook, told Garafolo that the athlete is still interested in playing football after his 11 seasons in the NFL.

ET caught up with the former Hills star in April, where she revealed that her family would be moving to Nashville.
"We have actually had our house there for about six years. We would spend summers there in the off season, and now both of my boys are in school, so it's been harder to break away, but this has always been the plan," she revealed.
"The plan was always to move to Nashville when Jay was done with football but even if he were to play, I would still move to Nashville with the kids and stay put," she continued, "only because whatever he ends up doing would be for such a short amount of time."
"I don't want to bounce my kids around too much, so I would just rather move to Nashville get them situated, get them in their school and then post up and we'll see you when we see you Jay," she laughed. "I'm just joking."
