DAVIE—Jay Cutler doesn’t need a mentor at this stage of his career, but he’ll gladly use Dolphins executive Dan Marino as resource while he’s here.

Cutler and Marino met during today’s practice for the first time, and Cutler came away from it thinking Marino will be a big help going forward.

“It’s awesome to have a guy like that in the building and have him around with his expertise, especially at the quarterback position,” he said. “To see him around, it makes guys fired up to have a Hall of Famer and a guy that played at his level.”

Marino is a special advisor for the Dolphins and is with the team pretty much every day. He’s typically on the sideline during practices and has been good with Ryan Tannehill in that role as well.

He played 17 seasons for the Dolphins and splashed his name all over the team and league record books before retiring in 1999. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005.

“He’s a wealth of advice,” Cutler said. “He’s been through it all, the highs and lows, and played at the top of the game. To have a dude like that at your disposal, I mean, you’ve gotta use him.”
