With news breaking today that Jay Cutler has officially signed a one year $10 million dollar contract with the Miami Dolphins you have to be excited for what the future holds if you’re a Dolphins fan. Adam Gase is easily one of the league’s best offensive play callers and that was evident in the fact that Gase was able to take the Dolphins to the playoffs in his first year as a head coach. Now Gase has a veteran signal caller in Cutler who understands the basic concepts of his system already and that knowledge could be priceless. The terminology that goes into offensive play books is always so complex and every team has there own unique way of labeling certain things. The fact that Cutler spent time with Gase while in Chicago back in 2015 is a huge reason why Cutler was a great option for this football team. It also gives Cutler the best chance of executing on the field come game day. The familiarity will be there for Cutler when hears Gase call in the offense plays and that means less thinking for the new Dolphins quarterback, instead Cutler will get to play instinctively. That’s always the ideal goal for a football player because the game moves so fast in real life you don’t have time to think, you just have to react. The Dolphins do have some weapons in Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, and DeVante Parker. Those guys won’t be as impressive as Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, and Martellus Bennett. However Stills, and Parker offer a different type of talent in their speed. Stills and Parker can work the vertical game better than those old Bears receivers did and that should pair nicely with Jay Cutler’s arm strength. Expect much more big plays to come from Miami’s offense this season and the Dolphins are the biggest threat to the New England Patriots in the AFC East.
