Dolphins Deal Quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Titans

The agents for Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill have announced on Twitter that their client has been traded to the Tennessee Titans.

Tannehill has also reportedly signed a new one-year deal worth $7 million a drastic cut his salary from the $18.725 million he was due to make under the terms of his contract with the Dolphins.

According to multiple reports, the Titans are sending a 2020 fourth-round pick and a 2019 seventh-round pick to Miami for Tannehill and a 2019 sixth-round pick.

The 30-year-old Tannehill, originally the Dolphins first-round pick in 2012 out of Texas A&M, showed flashes of talent during his seven-year run in Miami but proved injury-prone and struggled as a downfield passer.

This is actually a brilliant move by the Titans as it secures them a solid backup quarterback capable of winning games beihind the talented but oft-injured Marcus Mariota. Mariota missed three games last year and has missed at least one game in all four of his NFL seasons so it seems likely Tannehill will be starting some games in Tennessee in 2019.

As for the Dolphins, Jake Rudock and David Fales are the only quarterbacks currently under contract after Teddy Bridgewater spurned the team to re-sign with the New Orleans Saints.
