Cutler’s previous relationship with Dolphins coach Adam Gase turned out to be the reason the team agreed upon Cutler rather than the popular pick of former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Tannehill’s left knee buckled during a scramble Thursday morning and it was reported he simply experienced a hyperextended left knees.
