Jay Cutler is right where he wants to be.
Four years after stepping away from the NFL, the former quarterback is mapping out the next phase of his career. As Jay told E! News in an exclusive conversation while promoting his new meat subscription CUTS, there’s a reason it’s taken this long for the Very Cavallari alum to establish a game plan.
“For me,” the 38-year-old explained, “getting out of football and then taking a little bit of time to figure out exactly what I wanted to get involved with and who I wanted to get involved with was really important to me. I’ve been playing football since I was 5, 6 years old, so it really was my entire focus for the majority of my life. I really didn’t have a plan B, so I wanted to make sure that my next couple ventures were things that I enjoyed doing and could sustain for a long amount of time.”
