Jay Cutler completed 3-of-6 passes for 24 yards in Thursday's preseason game.
The numbers don't tell the whole story, as Cutler had a 31-yard completion to DeVante Parker called back by penalty. The Dolphins also got trapped into a 3rd-and-27 thanks to a pair of holding calls. Cutler came out assertive, aggressively throwing the ball down the field and locking onto Parker like he was an Alshon Jeffery clone. It was two drives in a mid-August exhibition game, but it was promising. The Dolphins will remain run heavy, but their passing attack is going to look much different under aggressive Cutler than timid Ryan Tannehill. Aug 17 - 7:37 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Jay Cutler will make his debut Thursday night against the Ravens.

The coach suggested that would be the case earlier this week, and it became obvious after Cutler took all of the first-team snaps during Tuesday's walkthrough. It is not clear how long he will play, but Cutler needs as many live reps as he can get before Week 1. Matt Moore will return to his backup role.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said he is "trending" toward playing Jay Cutler in the second preseason game.

Gase said he has not made his decision yet, but The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the decision is made and Cutler will start. The coach did say the quarterback "pretty much" has the offense down, so getting him game reps seems like the next step. If Cutler does not play, Matt Moore will get the nod.
Aug 14 - 11:27 AM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase was noncommittal on whether Jay Cutler will play in the second preseason game.

Cutler has been in Miami less than a week since coming out of retirement. He's working with the starters at practice, but may not be ready for game action. Matt Moore will start if Cutler is held out.
Aug 12 - 3:20 PM

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Jay Cutler's physical with the Dolphins raised "no concerns" about his surgically repaired shoulder.

Cutler had the surgery all the way back in December. The Dolphins never showed any concern about Cutler's shoulder, and by all accounts he passed his physical with flying colors. Cutler will be under center Week 1 versus Tampa Bay.
Aug 7 - 4:59 PM

New Dolphins QB Jay Cutler says he's been fully recovered from his shoulder surgery since March.

Cutler underwent season-ending surgery last December. The Dolphins wouldn't have given Cutler $10 million guaranteed if they were worried about his health. 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. Cutler will be under center Week 1, but has missed time with injury every year since 2010. Matt Moore will likely have to make starts for the Dolphins.
Aug 7 - 2:12 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Jay Cutler "didn't come out of retirement to stand on the sideline."

Gase did not name Cutler his starter, but this quote says it all. Just a season removed from working with Gase in Chicago, Cutler should not have much trouble picking up the offense. He will not be available for the first preseason game, but he should take over the reins at some point in the next couple weeks.
Aug 7 - 11:39 AM

Dolphins agreed to terms with QB Jay Cutler on a one-year, $10 million contract with another $3 million available via incentives.

It's believed this was the only situation for which Cutler was willing to come out of "retirement." He will not be calling games for a network in 2017. Cutler will be the Dolphins' starting quarterback, replacing Ryan Tannehill (ACL) with Matt Moore remaining in a reserve role. Cutler has a longstanding tendency to pepper big receivers with targets, making DeVante Parker an intriguing proposition as a player the Dolphins have propped up as their potential new go-to guy. Cutler, 34, is now worth a look as a two-quarterback-league play. He won't need much time to relearn Adam Gase's offense after the two spent time together in Denver and Chicago.
Aug 6 - 1:42 PM

The Dolphins are "close to a deal" with retired QB Jay Cutler.

The sides are working out a "small gap" in money. Cutler was reportedly leaning toward retirement, but it sounds like the Dolphins upped their offer. He'll be reunited with Adam Gase in Miami assuming the deal gets done. Cutler's signing would mean Ryan Tannehill (knee) is done for the year.
Aug 5 - 4:49 PM

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports Jay Cutler is "leaning heavily" toward staying retired.

The news comes as a surprise after Cutler told coach Adam Gase he was interested in playing for Miami. The Dolphins were in contract talks with Cutler on Friday, but it's possible they may not have offered enough to sway him from retirement. It's still too early to rule out Cutler-to-Miami. There should be more clarity when a decision on Ryan Tannehill (knee) is made.
Aug 5 - 3:34 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Dolphins have had discussions with retired QB Jay Cutler about a potential deal.

It's more confirmation the Dolphins are seriously considering signing Cutler. Per RapSheet, Cutler is Miami's "top choice" if Ryan Tannehill (knee) is ruled out for the season. Cutler reportedly told Adam Gase he's willing to come out of retirement. The Dolphins are waiting on more tests before make a decision on Tannehill, but they clearly view Cutler as his replacement.
Aug 4 - 7:19 PM

The Palm Beach Post reports retired QB Jay Cutler "appears to be a viable option" for the Dolphins.

Coach Adam Gase has reached out to Cutler, who's willing to unretire to play for Miami. The Dolphins are still waiting on a final determination on Ryan Tannehill's knee, but it sounds like there's a strong chance Cutler is going to be brought in. Cutler had one of his best years under Gase in 2015, posting the highest passer rating (92.3) of his career. He figures to start over Matt Moore if signed.
Aug 4 - 6:11 PM

The Miami Herald reports Dolphins coach Adam Gase "personally" has reached out to "retired" QB Jay Cutler since Ryan Tannehill suffered a potentially year-ending knee injury.

In 2015 as Bears offensive coordinator, Gase managed and manipulated Cutler in the same way he did Tannehill last season. In arguably one of the best years of his career, Cutler threw 25 TDs to only 11 INTs under Gase, and Gase parlayed their success into the Dolphins' head-coaching job the next year. ESPN's Jeff Darlington reported Thursday that Cutler would indeed be willing to come out of retirement to reunite with Gase, and an "industry source" told the Miami Herald the same thing. Cutler currently has a broadcasting job with FOX.
Aug 4 - 2:43 PM

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports "retired" QB Jay Cutler would be willing to play for ex-coach Adam Gase and the Dolphins.

Darlington reports Cutler would be willing to reunite with Gase — who momentarily revived Cutler's career in 2015 — if he "gets the chance to be the full-time starter (and get starter money) for the entire season." That would require a season-ending Ryan Tannehill (knee) injury. Cutler is still only 34. He could be managed and manipulated by Gase, and is probably still better than Matt Moore.
Aug 3 - 7:23 PM

Jay Cutler said his retirement is "permanent."

"I don't really see anything else happening," said Cutler of his playing career. "I'm happy with where I am, you know, in my life and really in the future going forward. So, yeah, we can go ahead and say it. It's permanent." Cutler was more or less forced out of the league after generating little to no interest on the open market. He seems committed to his new role at Fox Sports, though it would be a little surprising if Cutler turned down a starting job should an opportunity arise. Cutler turned 34 last week.
