Dolphins have reached out to Jay Cutler about National Football League return

Matt Moore best option to replace Ryan Tannehill as Dolphins' No. 1 QB Matt Moore best option to replace Ryan Tannehill as Dolphins&apos No. 1 QBMatt Moore best option to replace Ryan Tannehill as Dolphins No. 1 QB

The team was left scrambling when starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill went down after a non-contact injury to his left knee, the same knee he partially tore the ACL and MCL last December.

In May, it was announced that Cutler would join Fox Sports as a game analyst. Cutler, 34, played the last eight seasons with the Bears and was released by the team last March. After months of speculation, the Miami Dolphins signed Cutler to a one-year deal. That includes a base salary of $5 million. Aware of his reluctance, but after a day of no direct communication with Cutler, head coach Adam Gase was eventually able to talk to him. The duo connected 521 times for 6,423 yards and 46 touchdowns during their six seasons together.

With this injury, Tannehill and Dolphins are still debating if surgery is the best option as if Tannehill does chose to have surgery he will be out for the entire season.

While Tannehill's ultimate status for the 2017 season remains up in the air, it's clear that with or without surgery he is going to miss significant time. "So I don't think he looked at our situation like, 'oh this is going to happen'".

Cutler would likely compete with backup Matt Moore for the No. 1 job while Tannehill is out. 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. However, for now, he is still leaning toward remaining retired.

It's easy to swap out Tannehill and Cutler in our minds and say, "They both have big arms!"

This news comes not only as Cutler had seemed like he was contemplating retirement, but also as Miami is in peril in regard to their starting QB's situation.

Aside from the connection between Gase and Cutler, Kaepernick generally doesn't fit the type of scheme Gase is looking to run in Miami.
