Dolphins' QB situation murkier after Ryan Tannehill dealt to Titans

Perkins Tannehill era marked by frustration and mediocrity but it’s not really his fault

Perkins Tannehill era marked by frustration and mediocrity but it’s not really his fault

In Tennessee, Tannehill will back up starter Marcus Mariota.

One day after being spurned by free agent Teddy Bridgewater, the Dolphins traded 2018 starter Ryan Tannehill and a sixth-round draft pick in 2019 to Tennessee on Friday for a seventh-round pick this year and a fourth-rounder in 2020.

Ryan Tannehill has a new home.

The 30-year-old Tannehill will reportedly have his contract restructured in Tennessee to pay him a guaranteed $7 million with a chance to make an additional $12 million in incentives.

"We would like to thank Ryan for his commitment to the Miami Dolphins over the last seven seasons", Dolphins General Manager Chris Grier said.

As usual, it will take a more immediate emergency for Congress to act. We're not going to be bashful about that. He called the proposal "malicious".

Tannehill was drafted by the Dolphins in the first round of the 2012 draft.

Before the trade, Tannehill had two years remaining on his contract and would've been paid a base salary of $18.7 million in 2019 and $19.4 million in 2020. Dan Marino's career passer rating was 86.4, but he played under different rules and there's no one who would argue about him being the greatest quarterback in franchise history. He did not play in 2017 due to injury. Tannehill was never able to take the next step in his development.

His time with the Dolphins was marred by mediocrity and injuries.

The Dolphins spoke with quarterback Tedddy Bridewater, but were unable to come to a deal.

For the Titans, this is a high-end move but a smart one. Tannehill earned a flawless 158.3 passer rating and was rewarded by being named AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
