Dolphins trade QB Tannehill to Titans

Adjust Comment Print

The Dolphins will have a new starting quarterback in 2020.

Tannehill, who hasn't appear in any playoff games since Miami drafted him eighth overall in 2012, will back up Titans starter Marcus Mariota.

The team traded Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans on Friday in a deal involving draft picks.

Tannehill finishes his Dolphins career having thrown 123 touchdown passes and 75 interceptions with a 62.8 completion percentage and a passer rating of 87.

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.

The Dolphins will get a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a seventh-round pick this year, while the Titans will receive Tannehill and a sixth-round pick in 2019. He did not play in 2017 due to injury.

His contract was to balloon to $18.7 million in base salary this year, and he would have counted $26.6 million against the salary cap. Tannehill was never able to take the next step in his development. They have been actively examining quarterbacks in the 2019 National Football League draft class, and they seem to be a strong candidate to select a prospect in the first round of this year's draft or the next one. And his departure doesn't come as a big surprise when considering reports surfaced that the team was expected to go a different direction at the quarterback position under head coach Brian Flores.

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