Jay Cutler is the second quarterback to retire this offseason and make the move to the broadcast booth. The news was announced on Friday, and the former Denver Broncos quarterback joins Tony Romo who retired from the NFL and moved to the TV booth. Romo joins the No. 1 team on CBS.

Cutler makes the move to Fox Sports to take John Lynch’s spot on the new No. 2 team with Kevin Burkhardt and Charles Davis. As fate would have it, the first game Cutler calls in his new role is the Chicago Bears vs Tennessee Titans preseason game on Aug. 27 in Nashville.

"When I first heard it," Cutler said, "I was like, 'There's no way in hell I'm doing this. This is literally the last thing I want to do.'"

As The Afternoon Drive discussed on Friday’s show, do you like this move, hate it or more cautious? The pair of Burkhardt-Lynch was a good one. They had chemistry and used it to form a great team. It will take time for this new team to reach those levels, and I question how serious Cutler will take this job.

I’m also curious what it’ll be like when he returns to Denver for a Broncos game. Not so much for the call, but for the interviews and meetings he’ll do in advance.
