Former Denver Broncos QB Jay Cutler To Face Former Team
After clearing the concussion protocol, Miami Dolphins and former Broncos QB Jay Cutler will be squaring off against his former team.
For only the second time in his career since being traded to the Chicago Bears, Jay Culter will get to go up against the team that drafted him on Sunday. The veteran quarterback cleared the concussion protocol and will start for the Miami Dolphins on Sunday against the Broncos.
The Denver Broncos surprisingly took Jay Cutler in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He lasted three years with the team before being traded away. Now he will face off against his former team for the second time.
There is no doubt that Jay Cutler has been on a roller coaster ride his entire NFL career. He totaled over 9,000 yards 54 touchdowns and 37 interceptions during his time in Denver.
Meeting with the Miami media, Jay Cutler was asked if he looks back at his time with the Broncos. He replied with only three words. “No, I don’t.”
It appears as if the Denver Broncos are in the rear-view mirror for Jay Cutler at this point. He was even at the point of retiring after the 2016 season. But an NFL team needed help.
Jay Cutler came out of retirement for the Miami Dolphins when the team suffered a season ending injury to Ryan Tannehill. He has a 4-5 record as a starter for the Dolphins. His stats include over 1,600 yards passing, 13 touchdowns, and nine interceptions.

It will be interesting to see how Cutler performs in his second and perhaps final time against the team that drafted him. But if the Denver Broncos pressure him and force him into mistakes, the Broncos could well be on the path towards ending their losing streak.
