DAVIE, Fla. – Ryan Tannehill will be getting his starting job back in 2018.

"I see him as our starting quarterback," Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said during an end-of-season news conference. "There was nothing we could do once he got injured. We made the adjustments that we had to make."

Gase said signing Jay Cutler was the right decision. 

"Somebody that had been in this system before, thought we could get our guys moving in the same direction very quickly," Gase said. "Didn't happen as quickly as I hoped it would happen."

Mike Tannenbaum, Dolphins vice president of football operations, said he expects 2018 to be a fresh start.

"I believe in the people in our building," he said.

General manager Chris Grier was asked if the Dolphins would draft a quarterback in the first round. 

"We'll always take the best player on our board," he said.

Gase was also asked about the brawl that ended the game against the Buffalo Bills.

"I think this last game was probably the pinnacle of what I've ever seen with him (Jarvis Landry) during a game," Gase said. "Last game, that was about as embarrassing as I've seen in a long time. It's something that we can't have happen."
