Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, citing two sources with knowledge of the situation, reports that the Dolphins haven’t ruled out the possibility of bringing back QB Jay Cutler for the 2018 season. However, Jackson does say that the Dolphins are committed to Ryan Tannehill being their starting quarterback next year. According to Jackson, if Cutler plays well over the final two weeks of the season, Miami could face a decision whether to bring back Cutler or Matt Moore as Tannehill’s backup next year. As of now, it remains to be seen whether Cutler would entertain being a backup, even though it’s unlikely that a starting job will surface for him with another team. Cutler would also have to agree to a reduced salary from tthe$10 million he’s making this year and Jackson believes he would likely target at least the two-year, $11 million contract Nick Foles signed with the Eagles this offseason.
