Jay Cutler will make his long-awaited debut in the FOX booth when Week 1 of the 2017 season comes calling. The recently retired quarterback signed on with the network as a way to transition from the gridiron to the media world.
In an interesting turnabout, Cutler’s first game will be in Chicago with his former Bears team hosting the defending NFC champion Atlanta Falcons.
According to Charles Davis, Jay Cutler will be in the booth with he & Kevin Burkhardt for the #Bears week 1 match up against Atlanta.

Now, that promises to be a heck of a good time. And don’t for a second think that FOX itself doesn’t have a sense of humor. It will surely be intriguing to see how Cutler performs in a game pitting his former team against one of the top squads in the NFL.
This will come months before former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo takes to the booth for a Thanksgiving matchup between Dallas and Los Angeles Chargers.
