Tannehill missed the final three games of the regular season and the Dolphins' playoff loss to Pittsburgh after spraining ligaments in his left knee.
That season, Cutler threw for 21 touchdowns and posted a quarterback rating of 92.3 which was a career high, but the most important stat was that Cutler only threw 11 interceptions that season.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the one-year deal pays Cutler $10 million, plus $3 millino in incentives.
Cutler, who was a Pro Bowler for the Broncos in 2008, was immediately tied to Gase and the Dolphins after news of Tannehill's injury broke. Based on the fact that Cutler has been signed to start and is willing to come out of retirement, it looks like we should not expect to see Tannehill on the field at any point in the 2017 season. However, after Tannehill went down, it was reported that Cutler might be willing to postpone the new gig for a shot at playing for coach Gase. Ryan Tannehill was sidelined for that game due to a sprained knee with backup Matt Moore stepping in.

Prior to Thursday's injury the Dolphins and Tannehill were confident the knee would not be any more prone to another ACL injury than if surgery had been done after the first injury. Gase was Cutler's offensive coordinator for much of the QB's time in Chicago, and the two apparently have a good relationship.
This hasn't been the best week for the Miami Dolphins in regards to injuries. The strengths of Landry and Cutler is one of the bigger question marks regarding the personnel fit for Cutler.
There are plenty of potential alternatives to signing Cutler, Gase said. If Cutler plays sloppy, half-hearted or lackadaisical, it will be the end of the Dolphins' hopes to continue their positive momentum from the prior season.
As of Saturday, Cutler was reluctant about a possible return to football, although he hadn't made any decision with certainty.
