Titans acquire Tannehill from Dolphins

Share

Tannehill was originally due $18.7 million in salary in 2019 and was set to count as $26.6 million against their salary cap.

The 30-year-old Tannehill will reportedly have his contract restructured in Tennessee to pay him a guaranteed $7 million with a chance to make an additional $12 million in incentives.

Tannehill's time in Miami was coming to a close with a new regime in place. Tennessee will get a sixth round pick in 2019 along with the veteran QB.

Now we're left to wonder exactly what their plan is at the position.

Their attempt to get Teddy Bridgewater failed, which leaves them with only Luke Falk and Jake Rudock at quarterback.

If Johnny Hekker were to somehow be traded to the Dolphins, he would immediately become their most experienced passer.

He was the first quarterback taken in the top round since Dan Marino. Maybe they're fine with that? He will replace Blaine Gabbert as the backup to Marcus Mariota.

For the Titans, this is a high-end move but a smart one.

His time with the Dolphins was marred by mediocrity and injuries.

Mariota, the former second-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, hasn't necessarily proven himself as a guy worthy of a monster contract. You could argue that he and Tannehill are incredibly similar - both are athletic, accurate quarterbacks and their playing style feels similar. It's a luxury buy, allowing Miami added flexibility to ensure they can move up the draft board as much as necessary to target players.
