Jay Cutler Autographed Football Receives No Bids During Charity Auction

Jay Cutler received zero love during a pet adoption charity auction last week when his signed football received not a single bid.

Jay Cutler’s autographed white football was one of the several items up for auction on March 26 during the Chosen Man’s Best Friend and Factor Felines fashion show and charity event. While other items were scooped up, Cutler’s football opened with a bid of $100 and ended that way, according to the Chicago Tribune.

“When it came back, I was surprised it didn’t go, but I didn’t think it was because of who signed the football,” said Anti-Cruelty Society President Dr. Robyn Barbiers.

Barbiers went on to say that Cutler’s signed football probably didn’t do well because those who attended the charity event “weren’t exactly a football crowd.”

Of course, with all sports figures comes the comments from both fans and non-fans alike. What did people have to say about Jay Cutler’s auction action?

According to US Weekly, this story does have a bit of a happy ending. While Cutler’s football may have received zero bids during the auctions, an anonymous attendee did call up the organization and offered to pay the opening bid of $100 because he said he wanted to give the signed football to his son.
