Welcome back, Cutler.

Jay Cutler is back in the NFL after signing with the Miami Dolphins. That means Cutler’s expressive face and his engaging wit are back, too.

Cutler’s wife talked him into unretiring, and guess why

Cutler actually seemed pleased about his new opportunity with the Dolphins, but we just can’t get over how disinterested he looks. And we’re totally OK with that.

Welcome back to the NFL, and never change, Jay Cutler.
