The Dolphins have reached out to multiple veteran quarterbacks, including retired pivot Jay Cutler, the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero reports.
Cutler is reportedly open to delaying his broadcast career at FOX to join Miami.
Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, Cutler’s offensive coordinator with the Chicago Bears in 2015, has been in contact with his former quarterback over the past two days.
Cutler hung up his cleats this offseason, but his production and experience in Gase’s system mean he could be a solid stopgap if Tannehill misses significant time – though his injury history, penchant for turnovers, and retirement rust should concern Miami.
Tannehill went down Thursday with a non-contact knee injury, and the Dolphins allegedly fear he will need season-ending surgery, though no decision has been made.
Gase confirmed Friday that the Dolphins are exploring every avenue for Tannehill.
“Everything is on the table right now,” Gase said. “We are going to talk to a lot of people.”
Matt Moore sits atop the Dolphins’ depth chart with Tannehill sidelined, and Gase said Moore was the team’s quarterback “right now.”
