Cutler has a connection with Gase, but this still surprised me. Matt Moore deserves a chance here I would think.

Incredible. Did not see this coming. Bringing Jay Cutler in seems like a desperate move to me. Matt Moore must feel a bit underappreciated.

Obviously the Dolphins do not have any young quarterback in the pipeline whom they currently have any confidence in, and they have opted for two veteran quarterbacks who both know the Gase system and can back each other up.

On that basis, it seems signing Jay Cutler for one season makes sense. Some reporters claim that his $10M contract is a bargain compared to the current median starting quarterback salary in the NFL.

Either way, the key will be the health and effective play of the offensive line.

And I have been pointing that out for YEARS now...that the priority should have been the O Line
Many losses over the past several years come down to poor blocking and a basic fundamental failure of the front 5 . A lot of people blame Tannehill, but if we take away the number of hurry up passes which are not going to be accurate, and the number of sacks, the blame falls NOT on the QB but on the inability of the line to protect him.

Next year, Jonathon COoper will be a free agent guard. I would pay him what he wants. Within reason.
I would also draft the best offensive lineman Queen Elizabeth could stand behind.

Surprised by the Jay Cutler signing. He just seems so disengaged with a poor attitude a lot of times. Plus his play isn't consistent. May should have signed Matt Moore. A lot think Fins should've signed Kaepernick but we all know why he isn't getting a chance to be a backup or 3rd string.

It really sucks that Tannehill waited until so late in the offseason to get injured . In my opinion he either should have gone easy on his problem knee in practice or, and this is the far better option, just have gone in for the surgery when it became clear he wasn't going to be able to play in any more games last season.

So Frustrating.

The Dolphins are even more beat up where it counts most, the offensive line: guard/center Kraig Urbik already had a bad back, and now a knee injury will keep him out of at least first regular season game.

Veteran guard Ted Larsen is out at least half the season with a bicep injury.

All-Star center Mike Pouncey has been battling a hip injury for two years and he has not really gone full throttle so far this pre-season.

Without a solid, forward-moving offensive line, Ajayi will get pounded at the line of scrimmage and the offense may be limited to the short passing game, typical of the past several years.

On the defensive side, on the front seven, where consistently penetrating the line of scrimmage counts most, second-round draft choice Raekwon McMillan, slated to be starting middle linebacker, is out for the year with a knee injury, and we just don't know how the front line will gel.

Indeed, a repeat performance required good health, improvement, and significant contributions from new acquisitions, but so far on that first pillar it is not going well and the first game has not even started yet.

Good Luck!

Pats fan
The objective for the Miami Dolphins this year is simply to play more consistently aggressive football on both sides of the line of scrimmage. Period.

The organization acquired new players on both accounts during the off-season through draft, trade and free agency, and some key injured players are slated to return, but early injuries so far this preseason have cast doubt on that humble objective, and they are now scrambling to fill holes with cast-away veterans, maybe a few rookies.

No one is talking about overtaking the New England Patriots who are favorites to repeat.

Good Luck!

mod note to samiamnh--respectful conversation is what goes on team threads.

Good response by Bale002.

The Dolphins waived guard/center Kraig Urbik, electing not to keep him on injured reserve; over the next four weeks another team could sign him or, after that, the Dolphins could sign him again ... or not.

For the time being, the Dolphins have Anthony Steen, uninspiring one year experience, rookie Jesse Davis, and rookie Isaac Asiata competing for starting spots alongside injury-prone Mike Pouncey, Jerom Bushrod, James Ja'Wuan and Laremy Tunsil, with experience ranging from one to 11 years. Behind them, there are several lesser known names.

On the defensive side, they have signed veteran inside linebacker Rey Maualuga, replacing injured rookie Raekwon McMillan, out for the season. Maualuga will probably receive significant playing time alongside Kiko Alonso, Lawrence Timmons, Neville Hewitt and Mike Hull, with experience ranging from two to 11 years.
