Without throwing a pass, the Dolphins newest quarterback received a rock star welcome to South Florida.
Jay Cutler arrived in Miami Monday to begin his Dolphins career.
Cutler was seen walking through Miami International Airport, escorted by Miami-Dade Police officers so as to avoid any onlookers from storming the man who agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract.
Unfortunately, Cutler's arrival came over an hour after the rest of the team began practice at the training facility in Davie. The new quarterback is expected to go through his first practice Tuesday morning.
Cutler agreed to return to the NFL Sunday after a brief retirement following the knee injury to Ryan Tannehill.
Tannehill is expected to undergo season-ending knee surgery in the coming days or weeks.
Dolphins head coach Adam Gase was Cutler's offensive coordinater when the two were were with the Bears during the 2015 season.
