Dolphins Trade QB Ryan Tannehill to Titans for Draft Picks

Dolphins Trade QB Ryan Tannehill to Titans for Draft Picks

He became the Dolphins' starting quarterback as a rookie in 2012 and has still never taken a postseason snap.

The Tennessee Titans have acquired Ryan Tannehill from the Miami Dolphins.

Ryan Tannehill is now a former Miami Dolphin.

Miami will receive a 2020 fourth-round pick along with a 2019 seventh-round pick in exchange for Tannehill and a 2019 sixth-round pick, a source told ESPN. Miami then got involved with Teddy Bridgewater, but the former first-round pick ultimately elected to return to the Saints to backup Drew Brees on a similar deal to what Tannehill is receiving in Tennessee.

With Tannehill now on board, Titans general manager Jon Robinson said Friday the team will release Blaine Gabbert, who backed up Mariota last season.

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. 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 missed the full 2017 season in which Jay Cutler came in as the team's starting quarterback on a one-year deal.

The first game that comes to mind was the 2016 rout of the Houston Texans in Dan Campbell's first home game as Dolphins interim head coach.

@Titans have traded for and signed @ryantannehill1 to a one year contract.

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