News broke on Sunday that former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler signed to the Miami Dolphins. However, according to the Miami Herald, Tebow was one of several out of work National Football League quarterbacks who was thrown into the mix as the team looked for a possible replacement injured starter Ryan Tannehill.
After Ryan Tannehill suffered a potentially season-ending knee injury in training camp, the Miami Dolphins were in need of a veteran gunslinger.
According to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, Tim Tebow was one of the players the Dolphins were considering signing before Cutler agreed to join them. If you don't believe, just look at the recent quarterbacks who have won Super Bowls.
Sadly, the world will not get to see Cutler call a game for his former team, at least not yet.
Cutler will eventually get into shape, but it will take some time. "They get a leader, a natural leader on their football team and can win some games". With Tannehill done, the Dolphins went out and made a move that they hope will be able to save their season. "[Dolphins head coach Adam Gase] knows kind of what I've been up to, so we'll figure it out along the way".
"I think he's a great teammate".
"Kristin probably talked me into it more than anybody else", Cutler said.
Despite the injury, Gase feels confident that Cutler can return to his 2015 form. "I think our guys understand that".
How about Jay Cutler? All the Bills fans I talk to scoff at the Fish, even though they went 10-6 past year and beat the Bills twice. We've seen this situation countless times, and most recently in Dallas, where a 4th round draft pick took a job from the franchise's leader in passing yards and touchdown passes. Cutler is a prototypical pocket passer who showed an ability to run throughout his career.
There's already speculation about Tannehill and Cutler beyond this season, but the Dolphins' new quarterback isn't anxious about 2018. Although Cutler is just arriving in South Florida, Gase indicated that he will soon be the Dolphins starting quarterback.
