Jay Cutler agrees to terms with Dolphins

The Chiefs are a more talented team overall than the Dolphins, but the two playoff hopefuls will square off officially on Christmas Eve in the second to last regular season game for each-another home game for Kansas City. The deal reportedly is for one year and $10 million, plus incentives.

Chicago released Cutler in March, and he made a decision to join the Fox No. 2 National Football League announcing team along with Kevin Burkhardt and Charles Davis.

Cutler, 34, drew little interest in the spring as a free agent, perhaps partly because of his prickly personality and tendency for turnovers. Ryan Tannehill injured his knee in practice last week, and the extent of his injury is unknown.

He's expected to be sidelined a minimum of six weeks, but the deal with Cutler signals the Dolphins anticipate Tannehill will need a lengthier recovery.

In 15 games in 2015, Cutler threw for 3,659 yards and 21 touchdowns against 11 interceptions. Several NFL starting QBs are older, including New England's Tom Brady, who just turned 40. Previous year he helped the Dolphins clinch their first postseason berth since 2008, going 2-1 as a starter to end the regular season before a first-round playoff loss at Pittsburgh.

The Miami Herald reported the Dolphins also considered Colin Kaepernick and Kyle Orton.
