Looking at things from CV's POV.
With quarterback Ryan Tannehill having surgery on his ACL, the Miami Dolphins should be doing their best to try and lose as many games as possible.
Even when Tannehill was healthy, the Dolphins have been nothing more than a mediocre team at best. Couple that with the Dolphins being able to cut Tannehill after the season without much of a cap hit, you are hard pressed to find a reason to keep him after this season.
If you're the Dolphins, is a less than 100% quarterback really worth $19 million next season?
I understand the Dolphins came off a 10-win season, they made the playoffs, and now the fans are excited but does Jay Cutler make them Super Bowl contenders? He doesn't. All he is, is a name and someone who knows head coach Adam Gase's offense.
Cutler is not a long-term solution and that is what the Dolphins need. He was signed to a one-year deal and at best, he will lead the team to an 8-8 record this season. If you are a team that could potentially be in the market for a quarterback, that is not where you want to be.
Taking the New York Jets kind of approach without being so obvious about it would be in the best interest of the team in the long-term. We all know the best way to build a team is through the draft.
While they will not be as bad as the Jets or 49ers, a pick in the top 10 would ensure the Dolphins to get one of the better quarterback prospects.
This situation, I believe, has been mismanaged and it could push the team back quite a bit.
Only time will tell and the clock is ticking on Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins.
