Jay Cutler’s retirement seems to be short-lived, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Schefter reported Cutler is finalizing a one-year deal to join the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins are coached by Cutler’s former offensive coordinator with the Chicago Bears in Adam Gase. Cutler will make $10 million with the Dolphins.
Miami's one-year deal with QB Jay Cutler is worth $10 million, plus incentives, per source.

Cutler will stand in for Ryan Tannehill, as the Texas A&M product has been sidelined with a left knee injury.
The former Vanderbilt star appeared in just five games for the Bears last year because of injuries, but the season before, when Gase was his offensive coordinator, Cutler threw for 21 touchdown passes to only 11 interceptions. Cutler was set to join the broadcast booth with FOX this year, but that will be put on hold when he’s with the Dolphins.
