Cutler refers to “shred life” in the social media post a he prepares to shred up some freshly fallen powder on his skis. The former quarterback is dressed for the occasion with camo-style pants, heavy winter jacket, helmet and ski goggles.
“Shred life day 2,” the former NFL Pro Bowler says in the Instagram post. “@skidahuworldwide game changer.”

Jay Cutler Says it’s Time to Shred in Social Media Post
Cutler did not reveal where he is currently living his shred life but his Instagram profile shows he has been on a ski trip for the past couple of days. His post proved to be popular among his fans, attracting several comments only an hour after its posting. Social media users asked Cutler to be careful as he is a novice skier.
He also posted yesterday (Thursday) about his desire to “shred” down a snowy mountain. He mentions that he will be sticking to the more remedial slopes so as not to bite off more than he can chew.
“Time to shred,” he says. “Shredding will only be conducted on easy blue or green runs and at a slow rate of speed. Tips up. I think that’s a skiing term.”
Both his post from Friday and from Thursday have received a lot of feedback with more than 30,000 “likes” and more than 300 comments.
