Titans acquire Tannehill from Dolphins

  • Ryan Tannehill's contract was to balloon to £14.1m in base salary this year

The Miami Dolphins have agreed to trade quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans, as first reported by SportsTrust Advisors.

The Titans will send a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a 2019 seventh-round selection to the Dolphins, who will also ship a 2019 sixth-round pick to Tennessee. Paying big-time money for a backup quarterback has proven to be a viable approach (see: the Eagles and Nick Foles) and it makes all the sense in the world for the Titans, a team with Marcus Mariota now positioned as its starter. Miami has a huge quarterback void to fill, and seems likely to look toward the draft to do so. 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.

The Dolphins chose to move on from Tannehill earlier this offseason and they've spent the last few weeks actively pursuing a trade. 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.

Tannehill's deal reportedly reaches $12 million when playtime and other incentives are taken into consideration. He posted a 42-46 record over six seasons, while throwing for 20,434 yards and 123 touchdowns with 75 interceptions.

Tannehill, in all likelihood, was going to be released by the Dolphins this offseason, pending what they could figure out in the quarterback market. Tannehill has missed 25 games over his last three seasons due to a variety of injuries including a right shoulder capsule injury that cost him five games in 2018.

From the Titans' end the move is probably a reaction, in part, to Marcus Mariota's constant healthy issues. Now the Titans have multiple options, both for the short- and long-term.
