MIAMI GARDENS–All things considered, the Dolphins did well to get someone of Jay Cutler’s stature on such short notice. That he happened to be available and happened to have history with Adam Gase made it an even better break for Miami.
“We were very lucky he was retired and a free agent,” owner Stephen Ross said during local CBS’ broadcast of tonight’s game against Atlanta. “It didn’t cost us a draft pick. It cost me a lot of money, but that’s a different story. But we all want to win.”
Cutler did not dress for the game tonight, but it’s possible he’ll make his Dolphins debut next Thursday against Baltimore.
Ross did not give any insight into the plan for Ryan Tannehill going forward, saying only, “We’re all going to miss Ryan.” Tannehill’s pressing decision is whether to rehab his left knee injury or opt for season-ending ACL surgery. The Dolphins already appear to be ruling him out for this year considering Cutler would’ve been unlikely to come out of retirement for a short-term role.
