Kristin Cavallari shows off her favorite NFL tight end: A nude Jay Cutler

Kristin Cavallari shows off her favorite NFL tight end: A nude Jay Cutler

Kristin Cavallari continues to chronicle husband Jay Cutler's life as a free agent in the most epic way possible.

With a revealing Instagram photo Tuesday morning, she may have hinted at a position change for the former Bears QB...to tight end! (Get it?)

For the NSFW version, head to KCavs' Instagram page.

Smokin' Jay takes on a whole new meaning now.

It's still apparent Jay Cutler just "DOON'T CAAAREE."

There are so many Bears jokes and puns to be made here:

Bare Down. 

Once a bare, always a bare?

Bare at heart?

Looks like he's in some bare weather.

We know who KCavs' tight end sleeper is in fantasy football this year. No ifs ands or butts about it.

Ummm...

OK I'm out. 

Will former Bears QB Jay Cutler find a team to play for in 2017?

Will former Bears QB Jay Cutler find a team to play for in 2017?

PHOENIX – As Jay Cutler left his berth with the Bears, the links of him to myriad other NFL teams immediately began. And have gone nowhere, this despite a league-wide shortage of actual quarterbacks.
 
Not that this carries any import for the Bears, unless he winds up in the NFC North somewhere, but the question would then be: Why?
 
One notion that refuses to disappear around the NFL owners meetings, including thoughts of coaches, is that no one is really sure Cutler even wants to keep playing. If Cutler clearly wanted to continue life as an NFL quarterback, the answers to "does he want to play?" would presumably be variations of a strong "Yes" but those weren't to be had.
 
"I can't answer that. It's a question for him," said Adam Gase, who as Bears offensive coordinator got the best out of Cutler in 2015 before himself leaving to become the head coach the Miami Dolphins. Gase was in touch with Cutler after the quarterback's release by the Bears, texting Cutler and offering him any advice on possible new team situations.

But Gase didn't offer a job even with incumbent Ryan Tannehill coming off a season-ending ACL injury. "I never brought up anything about coming with us, because I like our situation," Gase said. "I love Jay but I like our situation."
 
The New York Jets considered Cutler, then opted instead to bring in his former backup Josh McCown. The San Francisco 49ers looked at Cutler before signing two of his other backups: Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley.
 
Maybe it's money. Cutler was set to make $12.5 million this year in Chicago and teams could be reluctant to offer a fraction of that and risk an attitude problem.
 
But Cutler himself contributed to the vagueness narrative when he was once asked, not that long ago, why he didn't have or seek commercial endorsements. "Starting quarterback for the Chicago Bears" is by definition a high "Q" factor regardless of his personal magnetism or lack of same, but Cutler answered the question that everyone knew pretty much what he made, and that he didn't need the money at the expense of time with his young family.
 
That may be the message teams outside of Chicago are still hearing.

Ex-Bear Brandon Marshall an early favorite at NFL owners meetings

Ex-Bear Brandon Marshall an early favorite at NFL owners meetings

PHOENIX – Brandon Marshall never needed a whole lot of encouragement to step before a microphone but the NFL, which sometimes wished he'd put a sock in it, has now invited the former Bears wide receiver to speak up.
 
The NFL extended an invitation for Marshall, whose time in Chicago ended in some measure because of his insistence on pursuing the media portion of his career, to address the league higher-up's ostensibly as part of a communications bridge-building. Marshall jumped at the chance.
 
"They thought it was important for a player to come up and give a player's perspective and talk about the relationship between owners and players," Marshall said on Monday at the outset of the NFL owners meetings. "I think it's evident that our relationship could be so much better."
 
Marshall has been part of Showtime's "Inside the NFL" in recent years, flying to New York to participate in taping the show, and ultimately accepting a trade from the Bears to the Jets in 2015, which obviously cut down on his commute. The Jets released Marshall earlier this month, after which Marshall signed on with the Giants.
 
He told owners this week, "If we want our game to continue to be on that [positive] track, that it's on being super successful and being a pillar in our community and being a thread in our community, we have to make sure our relationship as players and owners is good."

The immediate response was more than a little positive: Per San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York:

Marshall predictably welcomed the forum and wants to see it expanded.

"I'd like to see more players be more involved in our owners meetings," Marshall said. "And not only at the owners meetings, but any time we're talking football, we should have players at the table. Commissioner Goodell is always open-minded. He always has that open-door policy. So I think he'll continue to listen and continue to evolve this part of our business."
