Miami Dolphins quaterback Ryan Tannehill traded to Titans for draft picks

Shedding Tannehill, who signed a four-year, $77 million contract extension with Miami in May 2015, saves the Dolphins $33 million in cap space over the next two seasons.

The Dolphins have traded quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Titans, Tannehill's agency, SportsTrust Advisors announced.

In order to make the trade work, the 30-year-old Tannehill has restructured his contract, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Dolphins are receiving a seventh-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and a 2020 fourth-round pick.

The Dolphins finished last season 7-9, and finding a reliable starting quarterback could help them surpass that mark.

Tannehill will leave a $13.4 million dead cap on Dolphins salary cap in 2019.

In Tennessee Tannehill will not likely be given a chance to start but given the injury history of Marcus Mariota, Tannehill will likely see plenty of opportunities to play with the Titans.


He's 42-46 as a starter with a 62.8-percent completion rate, 20,434 passing yards, 123 touchdowns and 75 interceptions. But he didn't have enough of them and then injuries really hit, including an ACL injury that wiped out his 2017 season.

Tennessee, meanwhile, adds an injury-prone quarterback to the one it has.

We've known for awhile the Dolphins were trying to move their QB of the past few years.

The Dolphins are obviously moving in a new direction but where the Dolphins turn to find their next quarterback is anyone's guess at this point.

He was the first quarterback taken in the top round since Dan Marino.
