Dolphins coach Adam Gase reveals details about his conversation with Jay Cutler

If Ryan Tannehill can't play this season, it sounds like Jay Cutler would definitely be interested in heading to Miami to compete for the Dolphins' starting quarterback job.

That news comes directly from Dolphins coach Adam Gase, who recently spoke to Cutler about possibly signing with the team if Tannehill decides to undergo season-ending surgery on his left knee.

"He was interested," Gase said Saturday, via the Palm Beach Post.

However, in the same breath, Gase was quick to pump the brakes on any talk that a Cutler signing is imminent.

"I think he's trying to figure out everything," Gase said. "I mean, you don't expect this to happen. I don't think he looked at our situation. He was surprised, and he has things to work through."

If Cutler makes the decision to sign with the Dolphins, that means he'd have to give up his new job covering NFL games at Fox Sports. It also means that Cutler would have to quickly get into football shape, because the Dolphins would want him at training camp as quickly as possible.

Gase isn't even sure what kind of football shape Cutler would be in if he were to sign with the team.

"When I get there, I'll be able to tell you," Gase said. "I don't think it's even close to anything right now. So like I said I had one conversation with him and that's where we're at When I know more, hopefully in the next few days, I'll have a better idea."

Gase didn't offer many specifics about his conversation with Cutler, but he did say that Cutler never made any demands. ESPN.com had reported that Cutler would be willing to sign with the Dolphins, but only if Miami would be willing to pay him starting QB money.
