Fans were divided about his play on the field, but even his staunchest critics have to agree: Jay Cutler is way more entertaining now that he has retired from football.
The former Chicago Bears quarterback became a reality show sensation in 2018 on his soon-to-be ex-wife Kristin Cavallari’s show Very Cavallari. The show ended earlier this year shortly after it was announced the two were divorcing, but that hasn’t stopped Jay from being Jay — and now that he’s running his own Instagram account, Cutler is sharing some major gems with his followers.
It’s been said Cavallari used to run his Instagram, and after the two parted ways, Cutler began posting on his own account for the first time. Whatever the case, Cutler’s recent posts have been nothing short of hilarious, with his latest going viral.

Jay Cutler = Instagram Gold
In his first-ever Instagram story, Cutler shared an amusing anecdote about a mystery that has been occurring on his property: something or someone has been killing his chickens. He suspected it could be his cat, Thelma, but he could not be certain. He relayed the details to his followers in rib-tickling fashion:
“OK, here’s the deal. First story — [it’s a] big one,” Cutler began. “We’ve got a chicken serial killer on the loose. We’ve lost quite a few. Tonight we’re gonna set up a trail camera, see if it’s a coyote, bobcat, I don’t know, raccoon? Could be anything, not sure,” Cutler continued. “These ladies are a little edgy right now,” Cutler said, nudging in the direction of his chickens.
“There is one other possibility,” Cutler said, before turning the camera on his cat, Thelma. “Could be an inside job. Thelma over there, while she looks nice and sweet, is a savage with loose morals,” he said, before calling the cat, telling her: “I hope you don’t show up on camera tonight.”
Jay Cutler is now using his Instagram Stories, and this has the makings of an epic true crime series…🐔

The clip was less than 60 seconds long, but it perfectly showcased why so many people felt he stole the show on Very Cavalleri. His comedic timing and word choice are grade A, and the ridiculousness of the video’s content left fans missing Reality Show Jay.
Thus, fans have began to call for Cutler to get his own reality show after enjoying clips like this.

Some woke up this morning with Cutler’s Instagram story still on their minds.
Did anyone find out who killed Jay Cutler’s chicken? been waiting all morning for the answer…

Cutler did post an update early Thursday, saying he might “have an owl problem,” but he also noted he cannot be certain owls are the culprits.
Cutler also added another update to his story later, saying there was very little activity on the camera he set up, noting a storm may have deterred the “intelligent predator” that’s stalking and killing his chickens. One new wrinkle? Cutler now thinks Thelma the Cat, loose morals and all, can be taken off the list of potential predators.
