DAVIE—While coach Adam Gase seems hyped about the Dolphins signing free agent Jay Cutler to replace injured quarterback Ryan Tannehill, it was difficult to gauge the players’ excitement after practice.
One complication: They’re being pulled between someone they’ve rallied around for years in backup Matt Moore and a total outsider in Cutler, who still has to pass a physical and sign his contract to be on board.
Cutler was at the facility today, but obviously didn’t practice.
“Nothing’s changed for us,” receiver Kenny Stills said. “The guy’s not here, he hasn’t signed. We’ve got our guy in Matt Moore. We trust in him and that’s about it.”
Like most Dolphins, Stills has never played with Cutler. He’s never even met him.
When asked what steps were necessary to familiarize himself with Cutler, Stills mentioned a few things but returned to Moore.
“It’s not something we’re worried about,” he said. “We’ve got our guy. You guys know what he can do. We’re confident in this building in the people upstairs to do the right thing for this team. That’s where we’re at.”
