Dolphins Trade Tannehill to Titans

The restructured deal with Tennessee is a 1-year contract with $7M fully guaranteed, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

The Dolphins made a decision to move on from Tannehill earlier this offseason and they've spent the last few weeks actively pursuing a trade. With now two 4th round picks in the 2020 draft, and most likely two 3rd round picks (JaWuan James compensatory pick) the Dolphins will enter the 2020 offseason a year from now with over $120 million in salary cap space and multiple draft picks in the middle to later rounds.

The Dolphins finished last season 7-9, and finding a reliable starting quarterback could help them surpass that mark.

He's 42-46 as a starter with a 62.8-percent completion rate, 20,434 passing yards, 123 touchdowns and 75 interceptions.

Tannehill turns 31 in July, and his departure from Miami had been expected.

Tannehill, 42-46 as a starter, missed all of 2017 with a knee injury, and sat out five games previous year with an injury to his throwing shoulder.




Tennessee, meanwhile, adds an injury-prone quarterback to the one it has.

The number could go up to $12 million if certain incentives are met, which seems highly unlikely as long as Marcus Mariota is healthy. Titans general manager Jon Robinson got creative in a trade to find the best option to fill the role. The main remaining question from the trade might be, who plays quarterback for the Dolphins this season?

Tannehill's skill set should fit well behind Mariota as both players rely on accuracy and movement to succeed.

A native of Lubbock, TX, Tannehill heads into his eighth National Football League season.

Now the Miami Dolphins need a new quarterback.
