Former Bears quarterback Jay Cutler to sign for Miami Dolphins

Tannehill reinjures left knee in practice

That move suggested that both Cutler and Fox were open to the possibility of Cutler returning to the National Football League at some point this season without causing a major shakeup in game assignments for Fox. While medically speaking Tannehill is at no greater threat to fully tear his ACL than he would be otherwise, it's quite apparent after the fact that the stability of his knee is too compromised to overlook.

Cutler still has not given the Dolphins an outright "no", the sources said, and the team does have some willingness to remain somewhat patient, given how much of an unexpected situation this has become to all involved. A possible plan B for the team in the immediate aftermath of Tannehill going down came in the form of Jay Cutler.

Regardless of Tannehill's long-term outlook, Cutler is the starter for now, and we'll see just how long that lasts.

The Miami Dolphins took to the field at Hard Rock Stadium for their annual intrasquad scrimmage but six key members of the offense were missing. I had one conversation with him, that's where we're at. Schefter also reports that the New York Jets made a storng puch for Cutler early in the offseason.

Fortunately, Miami has a complementary set of skill players around the quarterback that could ease this transition.

That mentality is, of course, a double-edged sword. The strengths of Landry and Cutler is one of the bigger question marks regarding the personnel fit for Cutler. Miami is still waiting to hear back the full extent of the injury, and how they should proceed from there.

"Source: Dolphins & Jay Cutler are close on deal". Miami reportedly feared that Tannehill could need season-ending surgery, and Sunday's signing of Cutler suggests Tannehill likely will miss significant time.

You have to imagine that by this point both Fox and the Dolphins just want Cutler to make a decision so they can move forward one way or the other.
