The outcome of his divorce from Kristin Cavallari was an approximately halving of Jay Cutler's net worth, which had previously been substantially larger.
Cutler established himself as a crucial member of the Chicago Bears over his 12-season NFL career, while being something of a controversial figure among detractors.
Culter returned to the NFL for one more season with the Miami Dolphins after first retiring and working as a sportscaster, but ultimately calling it quits in 2017 when injuries took their toll.

In Santa Claus, Indiana, on April 29, 1983, Jay Christopher Cutler was born. Jay started as quarterback for his high school squad in Indiana for three straight years after beginning there.
Throughout the year, his team did well, and in his senior year, they went the full season without suffering a defeat. They also took home the 3A state title this year.
He also played relatively often as a safety during this time, recording 19 tackles and becoming a crucial member of the defense.
In addition to his football accomplishments, Cutler was a standout basketball player and a successful shortstop in baseball.
Jay was a devoted supporter of the Chicago Bears throughout his boyhood, the organization that would ultimately sign him.
Jay attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, after finishing high school. Culter set a quarterback record at the institution with his 45 starts as a quarterback during his time playing collegiate football.
He then became the freshman with the most touchdowns and running yards in school history. During this time, he didn't miss a single game and was healthy the whole time he played.
His most prosperous season was the one he spent at Vanderbilt. NFL John Lynch raved about what Cutler was doing with "a bunch of future doctors and attorneys" after the top-ranked Florida Gators were defeated by 42 points at their own stadium, the most points they had ever given up.
Jay worked hard in the classroom when he was a student at Vanderbilt and earned a Bachelor's degree in human and organizational development in 2005.
A reality TV personality known for her role in the show "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County," Kristin Cavallari, and Jay began dating in 2010.
The pair got engaged a year later. Later that year, in 2011, Jay and Kristin called off their engagement, only to rekindle their romance a short time later.
In 2013, they were able to get married. They had three kids together during the course of their partnership.
The pair made an announcement that they were divorcing in 2020. According to Cavalli, she and Cutler "grew apart."
Jay Cutler with Kristin Cavallari
With the NFL Draft in 2006, Jay Cutler's professional career got underway. He was regarded as one of the top quarterbacks available in this selection, and the Denver Broncos picked him with the 11th overall choice in the first round.
A six-year, $48 million deal with $11 million in incentives alone was then signed by him.
With the Broncos, Cutler was initially the backup quarterback, but he swiftly overtook Jake Plummer as the starter and had a solid start to the season with a 71-yard touchdown throw.
Many onlookers started to think Cutler could compete with quarterbacks like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady after another successful year.
By 2009, Cutler had requested a trade from the Broncos and had joined his childhood favorite, the Chicago Bears.
He promptly agreed to a $30 million two-year deal with the Bears. His first year in Chicago was a bit bumpy, and in 2010 he was seriously injured.
The Bears' performance was never quite convincing due to more injuries. But in 2014, Cutler agreed to a seven-year contract extension with the group.
Cutler was cut by the Bears in 2017 thanks to a $2 million buyout clause. The Bears were unable to tolerate his underwhelming results or his injuries.
A short while later, Jay made the announcement that he was giving from football to work as a pundit for Fox Sports.
But when Ryan Tannehill suffered a catastrophic injury in August of the same year, the Miami Dolphins were suddenly without a quarterback.
Cutler agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal with the floundering Dolphins after being contacted by them.
Jay performed well in his last season despite suffering from concussions, shattered ribs, and other setbacks, notably when he managed to steal the show from Tom Brady during a victory against the Patriots. Cutler made his official retirement after the 2017 campaign.
Jay Cutler's successful football career has helped him accumulate a whopping $30 million in net worth. He has also participated in a considerable amount of films and other visual media.
During the NFL draft in 2006, he was one of the most valuable assets. He was chosen eleventh overall in the first round as a result.
With a $22.5 million contract, Jay Cutler was the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL for the 2014–2015 season.
Jay Cutler received $54 million in total compensation payouts while playing for the Bears.
His squad went 12-23 in the games he played during that time. Jay received a salary alone of almost $120 million throughout the course of his NFL career.
A 11,000 square foot estate in Lake Forest, Illinois, was purchased by Kristin and Jay for $4.25 million in 2014.
With a loss of over $600,000, they had a $3.6 million loss when they sold this house in 2017.
In Nashville, Tennessee, a 20,000 square foot estate situated on 8.6 acres cost Cutler and his wife $5.3 million in 2012.
This house was first put up for sale in June 2019 for $7.9 million. The price was then reduced by the pair to $5.75 million and then, in May 2020, to $4.95 million.
The couple ultimately succeeded in selling their house in July 2020, but they suffered yet another significant loss.
They only managed to pocket $3.7 million in the end. From their initial listed price of $7.9 million in 2019, it represents a significant price reduction.
However, it's important to remember that they were already no longer together while these arrangements were being made.
It's possible that the couple was only seeking to sell their assets so that they may be allocated fairly in the upcoming divorce.
Many people began to speculate about the couple's future when they sold their prior residence.
Their concerns were quickly addressed, however, when Cutler and Cavallari later in 2018 bought a 35-acre "hobby farm" in the Nashville region for $4.2 million.
They broke up soon after, and it's unclear whether they ever got the opportunity to live together in their brand-new 10,000 square foot house.
Jay left the sport as a legend of the sport in 2013, after winning the prestigious Mr. Olympia 4 times.
He said that even after being 30 years old, he has zero pain, doesn’t have any joint pain, and has no health issues.
Jay Cutler will not return to competitive bodybuilding but will keep options open as a guest.
