Tannehill's struggles passing this past season are an area new coach Adam Gase intends to improve by building better protection going forward, the Palm Beach Post reports. Tannehill was sacked a whopping 45 times during 2015, making him the third-most sacked quarterback in the league. Along with taking so many hits, Tannehill's passer rating and completion percentage dropped. Nonetheless, like he did with Jay Cutler in Chicago, Gase intends to quell any quarterback concerns with the help of improved protection, showing his support for Tannehill as they enter their first season together.
Tannehill completed 25 of 38 passes for 350 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 20-10 victory over the Patriots. He also gained 17 yards on three rushes and recovered a fumble. In what has to be considered one of the unlikeliest outcomes of the 2015 season, the Dolphins thoroughly stymied a Patriots team with plenty of incentive and the much maligned Tannehill spearheaded the victory. He posted his second consecutive 300-yard performance, and his 9.21 yards per attempt was a season high.The 26-year-old finished the 2015 campaign with six 300-yard games, and has progressively increased his passing yards through his first four seasons. He also tied a career-low of 12 interceptions this season, but did suffer a career-high eight fumbles. While there are currently whispers that the team is willing to part ways with the fourth-year quarterback if the incoming head coach were to want to clean house at the position, Tannehill's 4,208 passing yards and 24:12 TD:INT ratio wouldn't be readily replaced by any free agent or 2016 draft choice.

Tannehill is available if you need him this week, but his production over Miami's last four games (the last three of which were losses) has been spotty, with the QB having recorded just two TDs versus one pick during that span.
