Tannehill avoided surgery after partially tearing his ACL late last season, but it is not surprising he is opting to get the knee repaired this time after re-tearing the same ACL last week. The 29-year-old will aim to return to the field in 2018.

The Dolphins also have Matt Moore, who started the four games last season in Tannehill's absence and who started 12 games for Miami in 2011, becoming a backup when Tannehill arrived the following season. Tannehill will be placed on injured reserve, the person said. It's unfortunate for him.

Cutler, who parted with the Chicago Bears after eight seasons, postponed retirement and his TV job, signing a $10 million, one-year contract. Brandon Doughty and David Fales are further down the Dolphins' quarterback depth chart.

Tannehill does have his flaws-including throwing at least 12 interceptions in each of his first five National Football League seasons-but he's had more positives than negatives throughout his career to this point.

Tannehill completed 67.1 percent of his passes previous year, throwing for 2,995 yards, 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions with a career-best 93.5 passer rating in 13 games.

Tannehill will have surgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament, a person familiar with the decision said Friday.
