Ryan Tannehill is now a former Miami Dolphin.

The Dolphins' desire to add a quarterback this offseason is headed in the opposite direction. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the deal is a one-year contract worth $7 million guaranteed, plus a chance to increase to $12 million based on playing time.


Teddy Bridgewater, an injured Miami Northwestern High graduate whom the Dolphins had courted, signed this week with the New Orleans Saints.

The details of the trade, as broken by ESPN's Adam Schefter, involves Tannehill and a 2019 6th-round pick going to Tennessee in return for a 2019 7th-round pick and a 2020 4th-round pick. While he never established himself as a great starter, Tannehill should be an excellent backup quarterback for Marcus Mariota. Tannehill was named the team's Ed Block Courage Award recipient in 2018 and the Dan Marino Team MVP in 2014. The Dolphins haven't really been linked to many quarterbacks in the upcoming 2019 NFL Draft, but that's largely a result of where they're picking.


Tannehill started all 16 games for the Dolphins in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, and 13 of 16 games in 2016 before missing the 2017 season.
