Last season Miami went 10-6 and lost in the Wild Card game.
Cutler is expected to compete with Matt Moore for the starting spot and will likely see his first game action on August 17th when the team hosts the Baltimore Ravens in their second preseason game.
Considering how he looked a year ago, it would be hard to expect Cutler to be able to save the Dolphins.
“He didn’t come out of retirement to stand on the sidelines”, Gase told reporters Monday. Some are upset because they are Dolphins fans and believe he was the best option, while others support Kaepernick and everything he stands for and want to see him get a shot with an National Football League team. “We just have to get all of the strength and stuff back in it”, proclaimed Cutler. “He’s really good at his job”.
Jay Ajayi will have to carry a massive load this season to keep the pressure off of Cutler. “But I’ll be fine”. “I know Adam very well”.
Dilemma: Cutler, who was prepared to work as an analyst for Fox Sports this season, said he “went back and forth on” another shot at a Super Bowl ring before committing to the Dolphins.
Tebow had thrown 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions in his three-year pro career with the Denver Broncos and New York Jets.
Cutler played just five games last season after suffering a season-ending shoulder injury.
Gase reached out to Cutler shortly after Tannehill was hurt Thursday and said the veteran quarterback needed no persuading to launch a comeback. “By March, I was cleared on that one”. But it won’t take long. We have to be smart with that because I’m sure he wasn’t in the backyard throwing a hundred balls a day.
“This morning I think I woke up in the hotel and I didn’t know where I was at. It’ll come back quickly”. “I’m not anxious about the throwing part”. “One, because we haven’t even started it”. Several doctors are being consulted, including renowned orthopedic surgeon James Andrews.
The damage is similar last year’s injury, a personal familiar with the diagnosis said, which has left the Dolphins consulting with specialists to determine whether surgery is the best option for Tannehill.
“It’s been a tough few days for him”, Gase said of Tannehill.
Cutler and Dolphins’ head coach, Adam Gase, have history.
That’s the good news for Miami. “I’m very excited for the future for him”.
