Report: Cutler wanted to play for Texans, they wouldn't return his calls
Dennis Wierzbicki / USA TODAY Sports

Jay Cutler expressed interest in playing for the Houston Texans but the team wouldn't return the veteran quarterback's phone calls, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said on television Saturday.

It's a surprising report, as Cutler hasn't publicly demonstrated any interest in continuing his playing career since the Chicago Bears cut him.

A photo of Cutler's nude rear end was interpreted by some to be a retirement announcement, and there were recent reports that he was moving to Nashville with his wife Kristin Cavallari - and not to join the Tennessee Titans.

The Texans needed a quarterback after trading away Brock Osweiler, but Cutler would have been an awkward personality fit with Texans head coach Bill O'Brien.

With the Texans filling their need at quarterback by drafting Deshaun Watson in the first round, and with all other quarterbacking vacancies seemingly filled, we truly may have seen the last of Cutler on an NFL field.
