The Miami Dolphins have agreed to trade quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans, as first reported by SportsTrust Advisors. He became the Dolphins' starting quarterback as a rookie in 2012 and has still never taken a postseason snap. "We wish him the best with the next step of his career". Tennessee has signed the 30-year-old signal caller to a one-year deal that is reportedly worth $7 million in fully guaranteed money, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Tannehill was a survivor in Miami, earning two contracts that paid him $67.6 million over the past seven years and playing under three head coaches and four offensive coordinators.

Between the Tannehill trade and potential compensatory picks based on this year's free agency activity, the Dolphins could end up having double-digit picks in the 2020 draft.

Tannehill's time in Miami was marked by his lack of availability due to injury and inability to get the Dolphins over the playoff hump. She called the moment the "ultimate career high". 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.

He had an 8-5 record as a starter that year before he went down with a knee injury in a Week 14 game against the Arizona Cardinals at Hard Rock Stadium.

The Dolphins spoke with quarterback Tedddy Bridewater, but were unable to come to a deal. Tannehill earned a ideal 158.3 passer rating and was rewarded by being named AFC Offensive Player of the Week. He's also battled injuries for nearly all of his career, and the Titans have struggled when Mariota has missed time.
