Dolphins Sign Retired QB Jay Cutler
$10 Million is good enough to buy Jay Cutler out of retirement. The Miami Dolphins have officially signed the former Chicago Bears quarterback to a 1-year contract after Ryan Tannehill went down with a non-contact, partial ACL tear during fall camp.
Cutler played under Dolphins Head Coach Adam Gase in Chicago during the 2015 season when Gase was the Offensive Coordinator. During that year, Cutler threw for 3,659 yards, compiled a 21-11 TD to INT ratio, and set a career high 92.3 quarterback rating. Gase says Cutler will not play in the Dolphins preseason opener Thursday, August 10th vs. the Atlanta Falcons.
Bringing Boldin to Buffalo
Retirement is also not on the menu for 15-year veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin. The Buffalo Bills signed the 36-year-old to a 1-year contract making upstate New York Boldin’s fifth stop of his career. The former Florida State Seminole spent the 2016 season with the Detroit Lions totaling 67 catches for 584 yards and 8 receiving touchdowns.
There’s a New Sheriff on the Track
On the flip side, retirement may be an option for 31-year-old Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt. The 8-time Olympic Gold Medalist received his first Bronze Medal of his career at the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London. Bolt ran the 100m in 9.95 sec, which ends a 45-race winning streak, dating back to June 2013. American sprinter Justin Gaitlin, who beat Bolt in that June 2013 race, won Gold with a time of 9.92 sec. Fellow American, Christian Coleman, won Silver with a time of 9.94 sec.
Following the race, the crowd at Olympic Stadium “boo’d” the newly crowned, and oldest, 100m World Champion for his questionable past. Gaitlin, 35, served two drug bans stemming from races in 2001 and 2006. Despite his two offenses, Bolt calls Gaitlin, “a good person”, and has repeatedly said that this will be his final appearance at the world championships. No word on if Usain Bolt, the 8-time Olympic Gold Medalist, will compete at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
