Cutler and the Dolphins have agreed to a deal, according to reporting by both ESPN's Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Schefter is reporting the one-year deal is worth $10 million plus incentives.
As Profootballtalk.com's Michael David Smith notes, the Dolphins have been talking to Cutler since Ryan Tannehill injured his knee in practice last week. Although there’s been no official word on Tannehill’s status, it now appears that he’s set to miss significant time and perhaps the entire season.
Dolphins head coach Adam Gase worked with Cutler in Chicago in 2015, and Cutler had a good season in Gase’s offense. The two see eye-to-eye on and off the field.
Cutler would come in and compete with Matt Moore for the starting job. Presumably, Cutler has been told he’ll have every opportunity to beat Moore out and be the Dolphins’ starter in Week 1.
From a fantasy perspective, it seems that whoever wins the starting job will be capable of keeping the fantasy hopes of players like Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Julius Thomas alive.
We will, of course, continue to follow up on that aspect as the month unfolds.
