The Chicago Bears finally won their first game of the season with Brian Hoyer as the starting quarterback, not Jay Cutler. The latest NFL rumors suggest that the Bears are looking to trade Cutler to the Miami Dolphins before the November 1 deadline.
Hoyer led the Bears to a 17-14 win at Soldier Field in Chicago. He also completed 28 of 36 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns with zero turnovers. According to John Mullin of CSN Chicago, the Cubs might have found their starter for the remainder of the season.
“Cutler’s future in Chicago is problematic, whether this week, this season or whenever. And that was open to question even before Hoyer demonstrated that the Bears may have the second coming of Josh McCown sitting on their depth chart,” Mullin reported.
Jay Cutler has been out with a sprained thumb in his right hand and his future in Chicago looks really bleak. According to Mike Florio of NBC Sports, the struggling Dolphins might be dumping starting QB Ryan Tannehill then trade for Cutler.
It should be noted that Dolphins head coach, Adam Gase, helped Cutler have the best season of his career last year. NFL rumors in Miami imply that Tannehill is having a difficult time under Gase which means he could be traded before November 1.
However, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reported that the Dolphins have no plans to replace Ryan Tannehill with Jay Cutler. Trades have not been considered by the Miami front office and no plan is in place to make any at the moment.
“If you are thinking the Dolphins are about to dump Ryan Tannehill by the November 1 trade deadline or after this season to replace him with Jay Cutler, no. Just no,” Salguero noted.
Nevertheless, it should be noted that these are just NFL rumors at the moment and should be taken with a grain of salt. However, expect more speculations in the coming weeks before the November 1 trade deadline.
