    Talking about Jay Cuter's endorsements, unlike other NFL players, he seems not to be interested in signing the endorsements deals as he wants to keep his family in his first priority. Here is the statement of the footballer:

    I think you all know my salary. I get paid enough to play football and with kids and everything else, you gotta factor that in.  You free time is your free time. You can’t get any more free time. You can’t buy it. You can’t find it on the street. So my time, I take that seriously and I use it the way I use it.played in the comedy show The League

    Really, a lovely father and husband ahead of being a successful player. Alongside being lovely, Jay also seems to be a fun loving person as he also played on the comedy show The League. Probably, it also earned him some memories and earnings.
