"Jay wants to play football", Cook told the reporter.
"Jay Cutler's agent, Bus Cook, said that, contrary to speculation, his client does not intend to retire at this time".
"His skill set is as good as any quarterback in the league".
One of the reasons retirement rumors have been floating around with regards to Cutler is because he's been clearly enjoying his offseason. There are a few teams that possess the need for a viable starting quarterback such as the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, and San Francisco 49ers, but none of these organizations have expressed any real consideration of working out a deal with Cutler.
Though his arm talent is unquestionable, Cutler has been plagued by injuries and interceptions in recent year. He played in only five games in 2016. Cutler led the Bears to just one playoff victory during his time in Chicago, but he set a slew of passing records, leaving Chicago as the franchise's all-time leader in both touchdown passes and passing yards.
