Bad news for Bears fans who like to keep up with their former QBs. It appears Jay Cutler has deleted his instagram.
Hat tip to Adam Rank for being the first sleuth on the story:

I don't want to alarm anybody. But Jay Cutler might have deleted his IG. Which is not the way I wanted to start the day. ... ... ... ... #ifjayhadinstagram #dabears #beardown #bears #chicago #chicagobears #monstersofthemidway #nfl #football #nflfantasy #nflfantasyfootball #fantasy #Fantasyfootball #fantasydraft 📸 Getty Images
But we can’t take Rank’s word for it, we need to confirm this ourselves.
When searching Cutler’s old handle @ifjayhadinstagram, nothing comes up. Plugging in an old URL to one of his photos returns a “page does not exist” error. Ok, no need to freak out. Maybe he deleted some pics and renamed his account?
Naturally the first move is typing “jay cutler” into the search bar, and upon first glance it looks like he simply changed his name. There it is: @jaycutler with a blue check mark and everything. But the description is a little weird, “Mr. Olympia Jay Cutler”... and is he using a shot of a wrestler as his profile pic?
Nope, turns out it’s another athlete with the same name, this one a bodybuilder.
Very cool content, but not what we’re looking for.
Digging deeper we can find a new account called @ifjayhadtinder but it’s just filled with memes and low-brow jokes… clearly not the real deal. Sadly, after that there’s a long list of fan pages and joke accounts, but nothing that’s No. 6 himself.
People around the world fell in love with Cutler’s Instagram page as he embarked on a weeks-long quest to capture a raccoon that was terrorizing the chickens on his ranch. He also became a top-notch thirst trap for single Bears fans, once he took control of his account and announced his split with Kristin Cavallari.
But now the worst is feared to be true. Cutler has left Instagram, leaving us all to wonder what he’s up to on his ranch.
