Jay Cutler says he never practiced for Fox Sports job

We’re talking about practice.

Jay Cutler was supposed to be making the jump from the NFL to broadcasting this season when Fox hired him to be a part of the No. 2 broadcast team. However, Cutler’s TV career was put on pause when the Dolphins signed him to be their quarterback following a season-ending injury to Ryan Tannehill.

In an interview with the MMQB, it sounds like Fox may not be missing out after all.

When asked if he practiced much for the TV job, Cutler said he didn’t bother.

“I mean, I’d be lying if I said I did,” Cutler said.

Cutler has not hesitated to share his laid back approach in all things this offseason.

Earlier this month, Cutler was asked about getting back into football shape and he said it wouldn’t take too long because he’s a quarterback.

“The good thing is I play quarterback so I don’t really have to be that good of cardiovascular shape,” Cutler told NFL.com. “But I’ll be fine. [Dolphins head coach Adam Gase] knows kind of what I’ve been up to, so we’ll figure it out along the way.”

Cutler told the MMQB he’s not really bothered by how people perceive him.

“Some of it is my fault. Some of it is how things went down. It is what it is. Right now I am just trying to make an impact with these guys and get to know them as quickly as possible so that we can have a good season,” Cutler said.

The 33-year-old quarterback will look to prove he still has what it takes to play in the league this season. He’ll have to now considering he may or may not have burned a bridge at Fox.
