Miami Dolphins, Jay Cutler Agree To 1-Year $10 Million Deal

Just when we thought Jay Cutler was out of the NFL for good, he’s back.

Following a very disappointing 2016-2017 season with the Chicago Bears, Cutler elected to retire and was hired by Fox Sports as an in-game analyst in May.

“We loved our time working with Jay and wish him the best back on the field this year with the Dolphins,” Fox said in a statement Sunday.

Now, however, everything has changed as Adam Schefter reported that Cutler and the Miami Dolphins agreed to a 1-year deal worth $10 million.

This now puts Cutler in a starting quarterback position in front of Matt Moore who many thought would assume this role with the absence of Ryan Tannehill due to injury. Moore is now entering what will be his seventh season. This shows a lot about how the Dolphins organization feels about the veteran quarterback. Not only has he been with the team for many years, he knows the offence in and out. For Miami to bring in a quarterback who was on vacation and in retirement mode for the past months reveals the immense lack of confidence Miami has in Moore.

Cutler, who started in 15 games in 2015, finished the season throwing for 3,659 yards with 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
