Dolphins Signing QB Jay Cutler To One-Year Deal

Gase was Cutler's offensive coordinator and helped the player enjoy one of his more solid seasons.

The one-year deal is worth $10 million, plus incentives, a source told Schefter.

Cutler will most likely fill the void left by current Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who suffered a knee injury during training camp and may require season-ending surgery. After the scrimmage on Saturday, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said he does expect Larsen to return at some point during the season. However, the elephant in the room was the potential of the Dolphins bringing Jay Cutler into the fold. Cutler continued to challenge defenses with 7.6 yards per attempt, but Gase allowed the veteran quarterback to significantly cut down on his interceptions.

While Tannehill's ultimate status for the 2017 season remains up in the air, it's clear that with or without surgery he is going to miss significant time.

Irving has made himself look like a locker room problem, as much as he is a talent. Obviously, they would not want a player who has no desire to play with the team.

As of right now, Miami's best bet at replacing Tannehill is backup Matt Moore, though it seems the club's plans may change once it's clear exactly how long Tannehill will be sidelined. "So it was a surprise, and I think he has a lot of things to think through".

Like Cutler's deep balls, "guru" is a word that's thrown around haphazardly in National Football League circles, but Gase deserves the title.

Per ESPN's Jeff Darlington, Cutler is leaning towards staying retired rather than joining the Dolphins.

Cutler spent eight seasons in Chicago but played in just five games for the Bears last season, posting a 1-4 record and 78.1 passer rating. But provided that Cutler finds chemistry with new targets in a familiar offense, Miami has enough talent elsewhere on the roster to contend for the playoffs yet again. He is very clearly just a single-year rental and reportedly wanted to be careful about how he handled the situation with respect to Tannehill.
