Miami Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler allayed worries about his surgically repaired shoulder, saying he was already cleared to play last March and it won’t take long before he gets into playing shape. One day after signing a one-year, $10 million deal with the Dolphins, Cutler addressed concerns about his physical condition. According to Cutler, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase was aware of his activities in the offseason, so they have to develop some kind of system to get him into football shape. Cutler said he played basketball and joined a football camp at Vanderbilt University to keep himself in good condition.

Cutler added that he’s not worried about his arm and the throwing part, saying he will get everything working quickly.

The Dolphins gave Cutler starting quarterback money after last season’s starter Ryan Tannehill went down with a knee injury and the timetable for his return is not clear. During his meeting with the press, Cutler said his wife, Kristin Cavallari, convinced him to accept the Dolphins’ offer. In May, Cutler announced his retirement and later agreed to become a Fox Sports’ football analyst. Now that he has signed with the Dolphins, his broadcasting career will have to take a backseat for another year in the NFL.

Broncos announce starters for first two preseason games

The Denver Broncos announced that Trevor Siemian will start at quarterback in their preseason game against the Chicago Bears Thursday, while 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch will take charge against the San Francisco 49ers the following week.

Denver coach Vance Joseph will use the preseason to determine their starting quarterback in the regular season. According to reports, Siemian is slightly ahead in the race for the starting quarterback spot, but Lynch has a chance to supplant him in the preseason. Last season, Siemian started 14 games for the Broncos, while Lynch started in two games.

Brock Osweiler to start for Browns in first preseason game

Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson has named veteran quarterback Brock Osweiler as their starter against the New Orleans Saints Thursday. The following week, Cody Kessler will get his turn, while DeShone Kizer and Kevin Hogan will also get a chance to show their skills.

Osweiler’s selection came as surprise as Jackson earlier tabbed Kessler as No. 1 quarterback heading into training camp. The Browns acquired Osweiler via trade with the Houston Texans. Earlier, they were planning on cutting him to create salary cap room, but instead decided to keep him as a quarterback option.
