Dolphins : NFL club lure quarterback Cutler back to league

The retired life was not for Jay Cutler.

But how hard it must be for Tannehill to help a guy who is presumably taking his job for this season.

The Miami Dolphins and former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler agreed to a one-year deal on Sunday, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

As if the confidence of Dolphins fans wasn't already plummeting with the signing of Cutler, comments like this certainly aren't going to help.

"It's got a lot of dudes", Cutler said about Miami's roster.

He missed time previous year with a sprained right thumb and a labrum injury that required season-ending right shoulder surgery in December, but he said he's healthy now and confident his arm will be fine.

Some believed that Kaepernick may perhaps a ideal fit for the Dolphins who are accustomed to quarterbacks with a non-conventional skill set.

When Tuesday's workout ended, the 34-year-old Cutler said he had no second thoughts about deciding to renew his working relationship with Gase and return for another season.

For now, the Dolphins have a new leader and many interested observers in Chicago.

That was to be expected.

And his opinions may have cost him his career as well.

Miami's receiving corps is far superior to that of the Bills.

"My original position was, I thought that the situation previous year with him taking a knee didn't have anything to do with it", Baldwin said. Weighed back and forth on this.

"I was very upfront with everything", Gase said. "I'd probably say my wife, Kristin, talked me into it more than anyone else could". Then, he announced in May that he was retiring from football and would be working as an NFL analyst for Fox Sports.

If you lose your starting quarterback in this league, you're generally in deep trouble. Matt Moore is capable of that, but start projecting him over 16 games and things start getting tricky quickly. "He takes care of quarterbacks". "Why he doesn't have a job?"

The Baltimore Ravens have been pondering whether to sign Kaepernick, which seems logical given Joe Flacco's back issues. In Gase's eyes Cutler merely needs time in order to develop chemistry with his wide receivers.

Cutler is 68-71 as a starter with a career quarterback rating of 85.7, 208 touchdown passes and 146 interceptions. Cutler said at his press conference that he was a quarterback, so that meant he really doesn't have to be in the best shape. But that logic doesn't remove the fact that Jay Cutler is just not the guy.
