The Miami Dolphins have got their new starting quarterback after they persuaded recently retired Jay Cutler to come out of retirement. This move seems to signal that Ryan Tannehill will have season-ending surgery, although nothing has been officially announced. Also, the Atlanta Falcons lost cornerback Jalen Collins for a majority of the season due to suspension.

How Culter and the Dolphins came together

Yesterday, ESPN's sources were reporting that Jay Cutler did talk to Adam Gase, but nothing close to a deal was in the works.

They also said that he was leaning towards staying retire to work in broadcasting and stay with his family. It is possible the one-year, $10 million deal, with up to $3 million extra in incentives, that the two sides agreed to changed Cutler's mind. It is also likely he was guaranteed the starting job since Cutler reported would only unretire to be a starter.

Sources told ESPN's Jeff Darlington that Miami raised its monetary offer and that Gase played a major role in persuaded Cutler to unretire.

In 2015, Gase was the Chicago Bears offensive coordinator and helped Cutler have the most efficient season of his career. He posted a career best 92.3 quarterback rating and only threw 11 interceptions. Clearly, the Miami Dolphins, who were a playoff team last year, are hoping Gase can get that out of Culter again to make another run.

In his career, Cutler has an 85.7 quarterback rating, 61.7 completion rate, 32,467 passing yards and 208 touchdowns to 146 interceptions. He has a career record of 68-71 as a starter, has only made the playoffs once and has one Pro Bowl appearance.

Jalen Collins suspended once again

Atlanta Falcons cornerback Jalen Collins has once again been suspended for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances. Last year he was suspended for the first four games of the season. Now, he will be suspended for the first 10 games. Collins will also be hit hard in the pocketbook, as the suspension will cost him $546,141 of the $928,400 he was due to make this season.

Collins was the Falcons second-round pick out of LSU in the 2015 draft. He played every game his rookie season but only started two of them. Last season, he only played only games due to suspension and injury. However, he started six of them and all three playoff games due to Desmond Trufant's injury. At the start of training camp, Collins was demoted to the third-string defense and this suspension will not help his cause to stay employed.
