Jay Cutler agrees to terms with Dolphins

Cutler announced earlier this year he was going to become an analyst with FOX sports, but now the former Bear has reportedly chose to sign a one year deal with the Miami Dolphins. Even if coach Adam Gase has made tweaks to the offense he brought with him to Miami past year and is running now, it isn't much different than the one he ran in Chicago in 2015 with Cutler as his starter. "I feel good about how he kind of fits in with us".

Jay Cutler arrived in Miami Monday to begin his Dolphins career.

Without throwing a pass, the Dolphins newest quarterback received a rock star welcome to South Florida. Rather than considering the quarterback change for which fans were clamoring during a blowout home loss to Tennessee, Gase doubled-down on Tannehill both publicly and behind the scenes by telling Dolphins players in no uncertain terms that everyone needed to improve.

But Gase is popular with his players and said he explained to them why he wanted Cutler.

"It's been a tough few days for Ryan", Gase said. That season was Cutler's most productive season in the NFL.

After retiring following the 2016 National Football League season, it looked like Jay Cutler was headed for the broadcast booth.

How quickly Cutler picks up the different nuances in the offense will determine if he can compete for the starting job. "And I get it". Jay Fiedler was new to the team, and because of a sore hip, he played just one preseason game, in which he threw three interceptions.

Tannehill, who missed the final four games of last season with two sprained ligaments in his knee, reinjured it a week into training camp Thursday. Speaking at his introductory presser, Cutler also claimed he wasn't promised the starting job, but coach Adam Gase - as well as his salary - have already said as much.
