Kristin Cavallari sent Jay Cutler off to South Beach with a kiss.

The former "Laguna Beach" star took to Instagram on Aug. 7 to wish her husband well after coming out of retirement to play for the Miami Dolphins.

"And he's off...but this time as a dolphin 🐬 so excited for my man on this next journey #MiamiDolphins," she captioned a photo of them kissing.

Media reports indicated Jay inked a one-year deal with the Dolphins worth $10 million, plus up to $3 million in incentives. He was set to work as an analyst for Fox Sports this year before the team came calling.

Around the same time Kristin shared her image, Jay spoke with reporters in Miami and indicated his wife all-but convinced him to play again.


"It was hard," he said of his decision to return to the field. "It was hard. It was definitely hard. The last four months I've been in a different mode, different mind-set getting ready for the FOX deal. I was really pretty good with where I was in my life. I was around the kids a lot and felt pretty content. Weighed back and forth on this. I'd probably say my wife Kristin probably talked me into it more than anybody else could."

He joked, "I think she got tired of me around the house. She saw it from a different lens. She saw what kind of opportunity it was, and she was all for it."
