DAVIE, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins and quarterback Jay Cutler have agreed on a one-year contract, per multiple reports.

The reported signing comes after Ryan Tannehill reinjured his left knee during training camp last week. 

Cutler is coming out of a brief retirement to be reunited with Dolphins coach Adam Gase. The two worked well together when Gase was the offensive coordinator with the Chicago Bears in 2015.

According to reports, the deal is worth $10 million for one year, plus incentives.

Cutler had a television job waiting for him at Fox, but during a recent interview at Vanderbilt University, he implied that he wasn't satisfied with calling it quits.

"Yeah, I mean, there's days you definitely regret the decision to do that and there's days that, you know, I'm feeling really good. I'm like, hey, you know, this is the best decision I could have made," Cutler said last month. "So, it goes back and forth. At the end of the day, I'm happy with where I'm at."

Tannehill suffered a season-ending knee injury last December against the Arizona Cardinals.

Cutler was a 2006 first-round draft pick of the Denver Broncos. He spent the last eight seasons with the Bears.
