The San Francisco 49ers are indeed planning to keep Eric Reid at linebacker for the rest of the season, but the assurances might end there.
“I had some questions at first about it, but now I think I’m really embracing it,” Reid said. “I’ve been at the position for a week and I think I’m starting to pick it up. There’s a lot to learn.”
Whether he’ll be playing at linebacker in 2018 — and with the 49ers — remains to be seen.
“I’m not 100 percent sure right now,” Gase said when asked if Cutler might return next week, via the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “I know Monday he ran with the team and he threw. He felt pretty good. I wasn’t going to put him out there tonight. I just didn’t think it was the smart thing to do. I know he’s tough but I didn’t want to put him in a bad situation where he could get hurt worse.”
Cutler’s struggles have been the focal point behind fans’ ire this season. He’s completing 62.8 percent of his passes, just 165.8 passing yards per game with seven TDs to five INTs, while taking 12 sacks in six games. Dolphins fans previously chanted for Moore to take over during the struggles.
The big question now is whether there’s still a market for him. He didn’t sign with Buffalo until after training camp started, so it’ll be interesting to see if a team is willing to take a chance with Boldin, even if means giving up some sort of compensation for him.
