"I don't know if retirement is the right word; I don't feel that anyone ever really retires from the NFL," Cutler said in a statement.
"You are either forced to leave, or you lose the desire to do what's required to keep going. I'm in between those situations in my life."
According to Kevin Burkhardt, Cutler's first game in the booth will be a Chicago Bears' preseason game against the Tennessee Titans.
Cutler, 34, spent 11 years in the NFL between Denver and Chicago. He threw for a career 208 touchdowns and 146 interceptions.
CBS Sports hired former Dallas quarterback Tony Romo earlier in the offseason to partner with Jim Nantz on CBS's number one broadcast team.
