  1. We all know in the football world that NFL free agent quarterback Jay Cutler is really the star of his Kristin’s reality show, “Very Cavallari.”Week by week as the show plays out, Cutler never ceases to disappoint his fans with his don’t care demeanor. In the latest episode, Cutler literally lived up to his nickname, “Smokin Jay.” Watch as he accidentally lights a cooking towel on fire, then casually attempts to blow the flames out. That is the same calm and cool dude we used to watch on football Sundays. Not much ever seems to ruffle Cutler’s feathers.Many of us in that same kitchen situation might have freaked out or at least thrown the towel in the sink like Kristin suggested.Meanwhile, the 35-year-old quarterback seems quite content as a stay-at-home dad, part-time farmer and watcher of elk.
  2. Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker is not on the trade block, a source told Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald this week. The Dolphins believe that Parker is having a solid training camp, though Salguero personally disagrees with that assessment.  Some have speculated that the Dolphins could shop Parker thanks to the presence of Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola, Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant. However, they won’t have an opportunity to showcase Parker to interested teams thanks to his broken finger. Even if the Dolphins wanted to explore a trade, Salguero estimates that they would not get more than a fourth or fifth-round pick in exchange for the former first-round selection.In all likelihood, Parker will be with the Dolphins when the season starts in September. However, the same cannot be said for former third-round pick Leonte Carroo.Parker hauled in 57 catches for 670 yards and one touchdown last season. His average of 11.8 yards per catch marked a career low.
  3. The Dolphins are unlikely to sign free agent cornerback Bashaud Breeland after meeting with him last week, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. Miami is searching for a starting corner to play opposite Xavien Howard, but it doesn’t appear as though Breeland is healthy enough to play immediately, per Salguero. Breeland, of course, agreed to a three-year, $24M deal with the Panthers earlier this year, but that contract was voided after he failed a physical. A foot injury that was subsequently infected is reportedly the root cause of Breeland’s health question marks.Breeland, 26, hasn’t been wanting for interest this offseason, as he’s either met with or been linked to the Raiders, Ravens, Browns, Colts, Chiefs, and Jets. However, no club has yet to sign Breeland, and while injury issues are surely playing a part in most teams’ decision not to ink the veteran defensive back, the Ravens — for one — believe he’s asking for too much money.For now, the Dolphins are hoping one of Tony Lippett, Cordrea T
  4. The Miami Dolphins are hoping DeVante Parker will break out in his fourth NFL season now that Jarvis Landry is no longer with the team, but the wide receiver will need to take some time off to heal before he is ready to practice and play again.On Tuesday, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said Parker is considered week-to-week with an injury. Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports that Parker has a broken middle finger, and the team hopes he is ready to return by Week 1. Parker, a first-round pick in 2015, should have plenty of opportunities to make plays this season. However, he has reportedly been struggling in training camp and has been called out in the past for not playing through injuries. The Dolphins can only hope the finger injury doesn’t end up being a major setback.
  5. The Miami Dolphins released a defensive lineman who was involved in an incident with running back Kenyon Drake during practice on Monday.During a session, veteran defensive tackle Gabe Wright elbowed Drake, who was not wearing a helmet at the time. According to The Miami Herald, Wright’s actions were uncalled for.Wright was a fourth-round selection in the 2015 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions. Since then, he has also played for the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles prior to signing with the Dolphins last year.It is not uncommon for players to get into fights with teammates during training camp. The Jacksonville Jaguars recently suspended one of their defensive linemen for getting into with another member of the team during practice. The Dolphins opted to not keep Wright around.
