Jay Cutler: I’m a quarterback, I don’t have to be in great shape

Jay Cutler cracked a joke about not having to be in good shape to play quarterback during his introductory press conference with the Dolphins, but Brady Quinn says Cutler knows what he's doing.

Is new Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler in good enough shape to play after spending the last few months in retirement?

“The good thing is I play quarterback so I don’t have to be in that great cardiovascular shape,” Cutler said with a smile today.

Cutler said Dolphins coach Adam Gase called him last week, asked him if he was in good enough shape to play this season, and when Cutler said he was, they quickly agreed that they could make it work.

“I told him I was good to go. It was very short, very brief,” Cutler said.

Cutler said he’s just getting a feel for the Dolphins’ facility and wants to “figure out where the dinner room is.” He’s confident that within a month, he’ll have figured out enough to lead the Dolphins on the field at the start of the regular season.
