Miami Dolphins trade Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans

Tannehill was maybe the most polarizing figure in Miami Dolphins history.

The Dolphins traded quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Titans on Friday afternoon, leaving Jake Rudock and David Fales as the only pass-throwers under contract with Miami.

His contract was to balloon to £14.1m in base salary this year, and he would have counted £20m against the salary cap.

"The curious decision of the Dolphins to pay $5 million of his salary in order to get a seventh-round pick and a future fourth round pick for Tannehill and a sixth-round pick increases the cap charge to a whopping $18.423 million". While he never established himself as a great starter, Tannehill should be an excellent backup quarterback for Marcus Mariota. 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.

We've seen Matt Cassel and Blaine Gabbert over the past couple of years have to play meaningful snaps for Tennessee, which is enough to scar a front office and push them into action. Titans general manager Jon Robinson got creative in a trade to find the best option to fill the role.

And, spoiler alert, the Dolphins do not care one iota about the $5M they're sending to Tennessee.

Tannehill's skill set should fit well behind Mariota as both players rely on accuracy and movement to succeed. Over the last seven years Tannehill was an iron man until the end of the 2016 season when he tore his MCL/ACL on a hit against Arizona. 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.
