Earlier in the season, there were rumors that Jay Cutler could be traded to teams like the Miami Dolphins. A deal with the Chicago Bears is not happening soon with Dolphins head coach, Adam Gase stating that Ryan Tannehill is Miami’s starting QB for the rest of the 2016 NFL season.
“No. He’s not coming out. You can ask me 100 times, he’s going to be in there the rest of the season,” the Dolphins head coach stated via Miami Herald about Tannehill’s starting QB role in Miami.
The statement should cease any more NFL rumors about the Dolphins trying to get a QB available from other teams. Jay Cutler’s name has been mentioned because the Bears are struggling this season and the quarterback is also struggling with injuries.
Tannehill has only six touchdowns with seven interceptions so far in the 2016 season with the Dolphins owning a 1-4 record. If Tannehill and the Dolphins do not improve, it’s likely Miami misses the playoffs again.
The Dolphins lost back to back games to the Seattle Seahawks (12-10) and New England Patriots (31-24) to start the season then won against the poor Cleveland Browns (30-24). Miami has lost the last two games, to the Cincinnati Bengals (22-7) and the Tennessee Titans (30-17).
Tannehill, who is in his sixth year in Miami, has registered 1,272 passing yards on 100 of 156 completions or 64.1% completion percentage.
