Dolphins considered Tim Tebow before signing Jay Cutler

Here's How Much Jay Cutler's One-Year Deal Is Worth

Here's How Much Jay Cutler's One-Year Deal Is Worth

Gase served as Cutler's offensive coordinator under head coach John Fox with the Chicago Bears during the 2015 season, so there is plenty of familiarity between the two already.

On Sunday, however, that all changed when it was announced that Jay Cutler signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins. So, it made sense that Cutler got the nod for a one-year deal worth $10 million plus $3 million in incentives.

Dolphins offensive lineman Jermon Bushrod, who played with Cutler in Chicago, said he spoke with him over the weekend.

But when Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill went down with a left leg injury last Thursday, Cutler was on nearly any list of options to step in.

He will immediately step into Miami's starting QB role, sending backup Matt Moore back to the bench that he's kept warm for the better part of the past six seasons. Burkhardt had raved to Sports Illustrated about the work Cutler was putting in to be an effective announcer, but that job is done before it got started.

Cutler's demeanor was mostly fine, cracking smiles and giving thoughtful answers.

No one in the Dolphins locker room is thinking Jay Cutler is uncool as their starting thought.

Adam Gase, as a matter of fact, may be one of the few movers and shakers in the National Football League who thinks he has Cutler all figured out.

With the Bears last season, Cutler played in just five games, as he totaled four touchdown passes and five interceptions. Moore has familiarity with the system and with the coaches and players. "And I get it". "But if you win games, nobody says anything". Last season Miami went 10-6 and lost in the Wild Card game.

"He didn't come out of retirement to stand on the sideline", Gase told reporters at his Monday press conference.
