Jay Cutler was selected by the Denver Broncos with the 11th overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. He spent three seasons with the Broncos before being traded to the Chicago Bears, where he played the majority of his career. Cutler earned a Pro Bowl selection in 2008 and later became the Bears’ all-time leading passer.
Over his 12-season NFL career, Cutler threw for more than 35,000 yards and over 200 touchdowns. His strong arm and aggressive playing style made him a prominent figure in the league, though his career was often marked by inconsistency and a high number of interceptions (twice leading the league).
After a brief stint with the Miami Dolphins, Cutler retired following the 2017 season. His legacy includes some standout seasons and memorable performances, contributing to his status as one of the more well-known quarterbacks of his era.
