  Dolphins | Jay Cutler has mixed results in Week 3    Sun Sep 24, 05:01 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler threw 26-of-44 for 220 yards with one touchdown and one interception in a 20-6 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday, Sept. 24.

Footballguys view: Cutler was a dud againast a generous Jets defense. Without a garbage time score, he would have only been better than Joe Flacco today. Even against the suspect Saints defense, it will be tough to plug Cutler into our lineups next week.

  Dolphins | Jay Cutler feeling 'really good'    Tue Aug 29, 12:25 AM

Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler said that mentally, he feels 'really good,' and that he also feels 'good' physically heading into the regular season.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins offense will be more aggressive with Cutler taking snaps. He's not afraid to throw into coverage, and Dolphins head coach Adam Gase will design the passing game to get him deep looks often. From a fantasy lens, Cutler is a QB2...and make sure you don't get dinged for INTs thrown in your scoring system.

  Dolphins | Jay Cutler churns out solid effort    Thu Aug 24, 08:34 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler completed 5-of-8 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in the team's third preseason game Thursday, August 24, against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: Cutler is going to be fine in this offense. In fact, you can make the argument the Dolphins are going to be more aggressive with their passing game because of the "wild card" quarterback.

  Dolphins | Jay Cutler shining Monday    Mon Aug 21, 11:42 AM

Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler made numerous plays in practice Monday, Aug. 21. Beat writer Omar Kelly opined that Cutler provided clear upgrades from QB Ryan Tannehill in arm strength and pocket presence.

Footballguys view: The argument could be made that Cutler will be better for the Dolphins skill position players because of his willingness to challenge a defense. We're not upgrading the players astronomically, but it just makes sense that Cutler is a little more willing to take chances and that could pay off with a few more big plays from this offense that sometimes looked stale with Tannehill calling the shots.

  Dolphins | Jay Cutler works two drives in MIA debut    Thu Aug 17, 08:21 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler made his preseason debut Thursday, August 17, against the Baltimore Ravens, working two drives before being removed from the contest. He completed 3-of-6 passes for 24 yards.

Footballguys view: Cutler targeted DeVante Parker heavily and compared him to Alshon Jeffery after the game. It looks like the pecking order among Miami wide receivers is changing.

  Dolphins | Jay Cutler to debut    Tue Aug 15, 10:15 AM

Updating previous reports, Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler will make his preseason debut Thursday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: Get those smokin Jay Cutler memes ready to go. Cutler knows the system and he shouldn't need that many reps in the second preseason game.

  Dolphins | Jay Cutler has chance to play Thursday    Mon Aug 14, 05:47 PM

Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said he has not decided if QB Jay Cutler will play in the preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Aug. 17, but is leaning toward playing Cutler.

Footballguys view: Cutler knows the offense, so that's not going to be a problem for him. As the team's starter, Cutler needs to build a rapport with the weapons around him in Miami.

  Dolphins | Jay Cutler is fully recovered    Mon Aug 7, 02:46 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) was medically cleared for his surgically repaired shoulder in March.

Footballguys view: Cutler is ready to go with his new team, and Dolphins coach Adam Gase should be able to get the best out of him. Expect a lot of RPO (run/pass option) for Cutler in 2017, and we could see a guy like WR DeVante Parker becoming Cutler's favorite the way WR Brandon Marshall was for him in Denver and Chicago.

  Dolphins | Jay Cutler financials    Sun Aug 6, 02:03 PM

Updating a previous report, QB Jay Cutler's contract with the Miami Dolphins is reportedly for a one-year deal worth $10 million and contains undisclosed incentives.

Footballguys view: That's all they need him for, though you do wonder what the future holds for Ryan Tannehill. The guy was on shaky ground anyway and he just doesn't seem to be able to take that next step forward. Cutler should be productive once he gets acclimated to the scheme again, and with the weapons here, should put up some solid points.

  Dolphins | Miami plucks Jay Cutler to fill QB void    Sun Aug 6, 01:49 PM

Free-agent QB Jay Cutler (Bears) has reportedly agreed to terms with the Miami Dolphins on an undisclosed contract Sunday, Aug. 6.

Footballguys view: This should be an interesting fit, as Cutler is well acquainted with Adam Gase's scheme and had one of his best seasons in it. With the weapons he has in Miami and a much better offensive line than he ever had in Chicago, he could be very productive. In fact, he could look better in this offense than Ryan Tannehill did, and he's definitely an upgrade over Matt Moore. It's going to take a little time to get up to speed, but Cutler could be a big help in getting the Dolphins back to the playoffs.

  Dolphins | Miami not close to deal with Jay Cutler    Sat Aug 5, 10:39 AM

No deal appears imminent between the Miami Dolphins and retired QB Jay Cutler, according to ESPN.com's Josina Anderson, who added that the team had not discussed specific contract numbers with Cutler's representatives.

Footballguys view: It seems like there's still too much baggage around Colin Kaepernick for him to be an option here, plus Cutler is acquainted with Adam Gase's system. He could at least be a solid QB2 if he joins the Dolphins.

  Dolphins | Miami, Jay Cutler talk possible deal    Fri Aug 4, 07:23 PM

Retired QB Jay Cutler's representatives have talked with the Miami Dolphins about a possible contract but nothing has been agreed to at this point, according to sources. Cutler is considered the team's top quarterback target.

Footballguys view: Cutler could be a good fit in Gase's offense and has experience with it. If Miami has aspirations of a playoff run, Matt Moore is not their guy. With these weapons Cutler could be very dangerous.

  Dolphins | Miami has already contacted Jay Cutler    Fri Aug 4, 03:19 PM

Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase has been in contact with free-agent QB Jay Cutler (Bears) the last two days in the wake of Ryan Tannehill's potentially season ending knee injury. Gase, who stated he will be talking to a lot of people regarding Tannehill's injury and potential replacements, worked as Cutler's offensive coordinator in 2015 and guided him to the most efficient season of his career before accepting the head-coaching job with Miami.

Footballguys view: Cutler did well in Gase's system 'back in the day' and there are enough weapons there to think he could be very effective if the offensive line holds together. We like this combination, though you have to wonder what shape Cutler is in as a retired guy. Even if he throttled back to what normal people do (or more) it's not the same level of care and work he would have put into as an active player getting ready for the season.

  Dolphins | Jay Cutler would return for Adam Gase    Thu Aug 3, 09:19 PM

Retired QB Jay Cutler would be willing to delay the start of his broadcasting career at Fox, according to sources, and return to the National Football League to play under Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, who was Cutler's offensive coordinator with the Chicago Bears in 2015. Cutler would only consider such a move if he gets the chance to be the full-time starter (and get starter money) for the entire season. The Dolphins have not yet gone down this road, as it is Cutler who has exhibited the initial interest in potentially returning.

Footballguys view: This is obviously in play now that the specter of Ryan Tannehill going on the shelf for the season has been raised. Cutler played well with Gase in 2015 and he would keep the team's playoff window open. There is a non-zero chance of this happening, as Matt Moore is likely ticketed as a backup if the team can help it.

  NFL | Jay Cutler says decision is permanent    Fri May 5, 05:59 PM

Updating a previous report, retired QB Jay Cutler said his decision to retire and become a broadcaster will be permanent.

Footballguys view: Cutler could be good as a broadcaster with his "long hair, don't care" attitude. If he starts really talking how he feels, then it could actually turn into must-see TV for football fans.

  NFL | Jay Cutler moving to broadcasting?    Thu May 4, 11:31 AM

Free-agent QB Jay Cutler (Bears) has auditioned for a broadcasting career, which could signal his retirement is imminent.

Footballguys view: We'd draft Tony Romo over Jay Cutler in a fantasy broadcaster league, but the train wreck factor of Cutler's "I have no cares to give" personality could be worth the price of admission. We're a bit surprised there's no interest in Cutler. Then again, the teams who need a quarterback are looking for younger talent with more upside and less grouchiness.

  NFL | Jay Cutler not done?    Tue Apr 25, 01:18 PM

Free-agent QB Jay Cutler's (Bears) agent, Bus Cook, said Cutler isn't retiring and hasn't mentioned retirement to him.

Footballguys view: If Cutler still wants to play, then teams who miss on a quarterback in the 2017 NFL draft could show more interest. There are a lot of project QBs in this class, so it's possible a team could select a player like DeShone Kizer (Notre Dame) and still go after Cutler.

  Bears | Jay Cutler expected to retire    Mon Apr 17, 04:53 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is likely to retire, according to ESPNChicago.com's Jeff Dickerson. Dickerson said he would be surprised if Cutler doesn't hang up his cleats.

Footballguys view: There's just not a lot of interest in Cutler right now. We don't see that changing with the draft less than two weeks away. He's 34 years old and has collected over $100 million during his time in the NFL. It could be time for Cutler to retire so he can pose naked on a deck overlooking the ocean....again.

  Bears | Retirement still possible for Jay Cutler    Thu Apr 13, 09:14 PM

Free-agent QB Jay Cutler (Bears) is still contemplating retirement, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: With nobody knocking on the door, we are guessing Cutler is considering the right thing. Someone might sign him during camp but he feels he is a starter, not a backup so that will - and has - limit his options.

  NFL | Jay Cutler to sit out?    Tue Mar 28, 11:45 AM

Free-agent QB Jay Cutler (Bears) has given NFL owners a strong belief that he's not going to play in 2017, according to sources.

Footballguys view: We could see Cutler just walking away from the game. That could be a permanent retirement or it could be for just a season. Either way, the market is not hot for his services right now but in this QB desperate league that could change with an injury or two in training camp.

  Texans | Texans not interested in Jay Cutler    Tue Mar 21, 11:45 PM

The Houston Texans 'aren't an option' for free-agent QB Jay Cutler (Bears), according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. As a result, Cutler 'may just wait.'

Footballguys view: The Texans seem to be all in on Tony Romo. They don't seem intent on trading anything for Romo, but if/when released the Texans would likely compete hard with the Broncos for his services.

Free-agent QB Jay Cutler (Bears) is a poor fit for the New York Jets as they begin to rebuild their roster and improve the culture in the locker room, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Footballguys view: Cutler may have a harder time finding a new home than some thought. Unless he wants to be a backup at this point in his career, there's not going to be a lot of teams lining up to give him a starting job.

  Jets | New York eyeing two quarterbacks    Thu Mar 9, 02:20 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian and free-agent QB Jay Cutler (Bears) have both drawn interest from the New York Jets. The Jets would like to trade for Siemian, but Cutler would be another option if a Siemian trade does not come to fruition.

Footballguys view: The Jets are clearly not sold on Christian Hackenberg, but it does seem like they are sold on rebuilding as they have cut a lot of aging player. Cutler would be more of a bridge quarterback, though whether he would play for a team which won't contend at this point in his career is a question. Siemian could be more of a long term move, in the hopes he could continue to develop into a starter.

  Bears | Jay Cutler considering retirement    Thu Feb 23, 08:49 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) is still considering whether he wants to continue playing in 2017, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: That would change the landscape a bit. The Bears are definitely shopping him, and there has been some interest, but that could cool with this news. What team will want to take a chance on trading for a guy who might then retire? On the other hand, this could be a ploy to get cut so he can dictate his destination himself. Cutler is a decent quarterback with something left in the tank, but he's not really a game-changer either in the NFL or in fantasy.

  Bears | Jay Cutler likely cleared in March    Wed Feb 22, 11:30 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) has been rehabbing and working out following shoulder surgery, and he's expected to receive medical clearance by March.

  Jets | NYJ has some interest in Jay Cutler    Wed Feb 22, 09:46 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has drawn some interest from the New York Jets, who like his moxie and arm talent. Jets quarterback coach Jeremy Bates worked with Cutler in his younger days with the Denver Broncos, and he has always been a big believer in him.

Footballguys view: The connection with Bates and star WR Brandon Marshall makes the difference here. The Jets could be interested in Tyrod Taylor (Bills) if he becomes available.

  Bears | Chicago seeking Jay Cutler trade     Tue Feb 21, 06:25 PM

The Chicago Bears are actively seeking a trade for QB Jay Cutler, according to ESPN's Jeff Darlington.

Footballguys view: The Bears want to get something for Cutler, but they may just end up having to cut him. He's got a big arm, but Cutler has not developed much else to his game and still gets stuck in bad habits like throwing off his back foot. Cutler is a starter in the NFL, but he is not the type of quarterback to build around.

  Cardinals | Jay Cutler not in the cards for Arizona    Tue Feb 21, 10:53 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is of no interest to the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: It was speculated that Arizona would be interested in Cutler as a backup to Carson Palmer in 2017 and a QB of the future for Bruce Arians. That looks great on paper with Arians' vertical system and Cutler's rocket arm. However, it appears the team isn't interested in the complicated veteran. We think they take a QB in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft.

  Cardinals | Arizona may consider Jay Cutler    Mon Feb 20, 12:18 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is expected to be released this offseason, and the MMQB's Peter King 'wouldn't be shocked' if he ends up with the Arizona Cardinals to serve as the backup for Carson Palmer.

Footballguys view: That would be an interesting move...and we're not sure Cutler would be happy as a backup. If he did go to Arizona as a reserve player, he might not sit the bench for long. It just doesn't seem like Palmer has much left to offer.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is unlikely to land with the New York Jets, according to sources.

  Jets | NYJ a landing spot for Jay Cutler?    Wed Feb 8, 10:48 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is a 'possibility' to join the New York Jets if he is released as expected this offseason, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Confora.

Footballguys view: That sound you heard was thousands of Jets fans screaming as they tore their hair out. Clearly, the Jets think they are closer to contending than they looked in 2016. Also, would this mean the end of Brandon Marshall, who Cutler reportedly feuded with before the former left the Chicago Bears?

  Bears | Bears moving on from Jay Cutler?    Thu Feb 2, 08:05 PM

The Chicago Bears are 'moving on' from QB Jay Cutler, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

Footballguys view: This is no surprise. They seemed open to moving on from him at the beginning of the John Fox era, but there were no takers. Adam Gase revived Cutler in 2015, but 2016 was an injury-riddled and mostly lost year for Cutler in Chicago. He might not be as coveted as Tony Romo or Jimmy Garoppolo in the free agent market, but he should start somewhere next season, even if it is as a bridge to a first-round rookie passer.

  Bears | Jay Cutler ahead of schedule    Thu Jan 5, 11:30 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) is rehabbing hard and is ahead of schedule in his recovery from shoulder surgery, according to general manager Ryan Pace.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's future with the team 'hasn't been completely finalized,' according to general manager Ryan Pace, but Pace said Wednesday, Jan. 3, 'everything is on the table' when it comes to the quarterback position.

Footballguys view: We'd be shocked if Cutler sticks around in Chicago. With John Fox (and plenty of his assistants) sticking around it means Cutler has to go. Where he winds up -- and who the Bears replace him with -- is up in the air.
