Maybe we won’t see Jay Cutler slinging passes on an NFL football field this fall, after all.

The newly retired Cutler is still considering resuming his playing career and joining the Miami Dolphins, but is now leaning heavily toward staying retired, ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reports.

The Dolphins, whose head coach Adam Gase has worked with Cutler before, were the only team with a chance to lure Cutler out of retirement but it likely still won’t be enough to convince him, Darlington adds.

The Dolphins are believed to be on the hunt for a quarterback with Ryan Tannehill‘s season in jeopardy after he re-injured the knee that forced him to the sideline late last season.

It’s still unclear if Tannehill will need season-ending surgery.

Unless Cutler comes out of retirement, he will spend the fall as a TV analyst for FOX.
