The Dolphins traded Tannehill to the Titans on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Tannehill gives Tennessee a high-end backup for Marcus Mariota, who has yet to play a 16-game season through four years in the league. Meanwhile, the Dolphins are left with Luke Falk and Jake Rudock as the only quarterbacks on their roster, having failed to lure Teddy Bridgewater away from New Orleans. It's a safe bet the Dolphins select a quarterback at some point in the upcoming draft, and they also figure to take a look at veterans such as Ryan Fitzpatrick and Blake Bortles. As part of the trade, Tannehill agreed to reduce his 2019 compensation to $7 million, with the potential to go up to around $12 million if he reaches certain incentives, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Given Mariota's inconsistent play and injury woes, it isn't too hard to imagine a scenario in which Tannehill eventually pushes for the top job. The Titans made a couple big additions on offense earlier this week, signing guard Rodger Saffold and slot receiver Adam Humphries.
The Dolphins are actively looking to trade Tannehill, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
This should come as no surprise, given Tannehill seems to have fallen out of favor with the new Dolphins brass. Tannehill's contract, one that will pay him just over $51 million over the next two years, will likely give any prospective team pause, making it unlikely the 2012 first-round pick is moved until well after the 2019 NFL Draft. The most likely course of action will be for the Dolphins to simply designate Tannehill as a post-June 1 cut, saving the franchise $18.7 million of cap space and freeing the quarterback up to explore the open market.
Tannehill may be released during the offseason, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.
Scheduled for cap hits above $25 million in the final two seasons of his four-year extension, Tannehill would need to accept a pay cut to have any shot at sticking around in Miami. The contract will also make it difficult to work out a trade, as teams won't have much interest in acquiring the 30-year-old quarterback unless he verbally agrees to reduce his salary. With the Dolphins bringing in a new coaching staff and eventually a new franchise quarterback, the likeliest scenario has Tannehill being released and hitting the open market as an unrestricted free agent. Possible fits include the Jaguars and Redskins, though he may end up settling for a backup job.
Tannehill completed 18 of 31 passes for 147 yards and two interceptions while also rushing twice for nine yards and losing a fumble in Sunday's 42-17 loss to Buffalo. He finishes the season with 1,979 passing yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
Tannehill's combination of injuries and ineffectiveness rendered him a nearly useless fantasy commodity for most of the season. The Dolphins, who were lucky to even achieve their mediocre 7-9 record, will likely try to get out of the $26.6 million they owe their 2012 first-rounder next season, as no team would even give him half of that total on the open market.
Coach Adam Gase said Tannehill will start in the Dolphins' season finale at Buffalo, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
With Miami sitting at 7-8 and officially out of the playoff picture, Gase would be warranted giving another signal-caller a chance due to Tannehill's mediocre (at best) play in 2018. The QB room currently is composed of Tannehill, Brock Osweiler and David Fales, though, so Gase doesn't have much choice with a .500 record on the line. Tannehill has fallen shy of 200 yards passing in six of 10 appearances this season, including his previous matchup with the Bills in Week 13, but he made up for it with three touchdowns in a 21-17 victory.
Tannehill completed 15 of 22 passes for 146 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 17-7 loss to the Jaguars. He also rushed three times for 22 yards.
Tannehill was unable to get the Dolphins offense going during Sunday's playoff-eliminating loss, capping the day with a fourth quarter, 33-yard interception that resulted in a pick-six. On the day, the Tannehill-led Miami offense was just two of nine on third downs and did not log a single play in Jacksonville territory during the second half. It's fair to question Tannehill's long-term security with the team as the offseason approaches, especially considering his $26.6 million cap hit next year.
Tannehill (shoulder/ankle) doesn't have a designation on the Dolphins' final injury report for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Limited at practice throughout the week, Tannehill may not be at his best in terms of arm strength and mobility, but there's no question he'll get the start in a must-win game for Miami. The Week 16 matchup favors a run-heavy approach, as the Jaguars rank fourth in yards allowed per pass attempt (6.7) and 14th in yards allowed per carry (4.4). The Dolphins offense can probably afford to play it safe with Cody Kessler taking snaps on the other side.
Tannehill (ankle/shoulder) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.
Tannehill picked up the ankle injury during a Week 14 win over the Patriots and then took nine sacks in Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Vikings. He should be fine to face Jacksonville this weekend, though he may not be at his best in terms of mobility or arm strength. Given the weak opponent, Miami likely will try to lean on its rushing attack, which now features Kalen Ballage in tandem with Kenyan Drake in the absence of Frank Gore (foot).
Tannehill (ankle) completed 11 of 24 passes for 108 yards and rushed once for one yard in Sunday's 41-17 loss to Minnesota.
Tannehill didn't turn the ball over, but that's about the only positive takeaway from his performance. Miami could barely move the ball, with the Dolphins' two touchdowns coming on a pick-six and a 75-yard run by Kalen Ballage. Don't expect much offense from either team when the Dolphins host the Jaguars in a battle of Florida-based franchises in Week 16.
Tannehill (ankle) will start Sunday's game at Minnesota, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Tannehill picked up an ankle injury Week 14 against the Patriots that limited him in each practice this week. To ensure he has the proper mobility, he's expected to have his right ankle heavily wrapped against a Vikings defense that has given up 236.1 yards per game but just a 15:12 TD:INT to quarterbacks in 13 games this season.
Coach Adam Gase said Tannehill (ankle) looked good during practice Wednesday and will play in Sunday's game at Minnesota "unless something crazy happens," Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Beasley agreed with Gase's assessment of Tannehill looking good Wednesday, noting that the quarterback moved around well even though his entire right cleat was covered in tape. While he may be slightly limited in terms of mobility, Tannehill doesn't seem to be in much danger of sitting out Week 15. The bigger concern is his tricky road matchup with a Vikings defense ranked seventh in the NFL in opponent passer rating (86.7) and 16th in yards per attempt (7.5).
Tannehill (ankle) was spotted on the field at practice Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
While it remains to be seen how the Dolphins will list Tannehill's participation level, his presence on the field Wednesday is a good sign with regard to his status for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Thanks to their improbable last-second win over the Patriots in Week 14, the Dolphins sit at 7-6 and remain in the AFC playoff hunt. As a result, Tannehill will no likely do whatever he can to be on the field this weekend.
Tannehill (ankle) is walking around without any help Monday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Tannehill missed part of the second quarter in Sunday's 34-33 win over the Patriots, returning after halftime to eventually play a role in the thrilling finish. He's still dealing with some soreness Monday, but Wolfe and Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald both get the impression Tannehill will be fine to start Sunday in Minnesota. The quarterback figures to be limited, at best, when the Dolphins release their initial Week 15 practice report Wednesday.
Tannehill had a limp and his right ankle taped following Sunday's 34-33 walk-off win over the Patriots, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Tannehill completed 14 of 19 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns and rushed once for 13 yards, while he briefly left game just before halftime. Overall, it was an efficient afternoon for the 30-year-old, which was capped with a 69-yard touchdown to Kenyan Drake as time expired that featured two laterals to secure the improbable victory. The miraculous play put the Dolphins at 7-6 and provides a boon to their playoff hopes heading into next week's game against the Vikings, though Tannehill's health remains a worthwhile concern.
Tannehill, who headed to the locker room during Sunday's game against the Patriots with a possible ankle injury, was able to return to the contest.
Brock Osweiler finished up the first half at QB for the Dolphins, but fortunately for the team, Tannehill was able to return to the field at the start the third quarter of Sunday's contest.
Tannehill headed to the locker room during Sunday's game against the Patriots with a possible ankle injury.
Tannehill has been working through a shoulder issue, but the injury that forced him out of Sunday's contest is a new one. Brock Osweiler is now in at QB for the Dolphins.
Tannehill completed 16 of 24 passes for 137 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in the Dolphins' 21-17 win over the Bills on Sunday. He also lost five yards on three rushes.
Tannehill found DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Kenyan Drake for passing scores, pushing his TD:INT to 5:1 in the two games since his return from a shoulder injury. The 30-year-old's pass attempts have been in the mid-20s in both contests, a volume that makes him more dependent on touchdowns for fantasy production. However, it's worth noting Tannehill was operating without trusted safety valve Danny Amendola (knee) on Sunday, reducing the number of options at his disposal when dropping back. Tannehill will look to up his yardage totals in a divisional showdown at home against the Patriots in Week 14.
Tannehill (shoulder) logged full practice participation Wednesday through Friday ahead of Sunday's game against the Bills, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Even though he avoided an injury designation heading into last weekend's 27-24 loss to the Colts, Tannehill's practice reps were still limited coming off a five-game absence. After turning in a quality outing against the Colts with 17 completions on 25 attempts for 204 yards and two touchdowns, Tannehill reported no issues coming out of the contest. That was essentially supported by his lack of restrictions in practice this week, which should give fantasy managers an added measure of confidence in rolling with him in lineups over the final quarter of the season. While health considerations shouldn't be much of a factor with regards to his Week 13 outlook, Tannehill may have a tough time producing useful numbers while matching up with a Buffalo defense that has limited opposing passers to 6.4 yards per attempt (second in the NFL) and an 84.2 rating (fourth) this season.
Tannehill (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice but did mention that he feels some general soreness, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Tannehill also made sure to mention that his throwing shoulder feels good, downplaying any possible concern after he returned from a five-game absence for Sunday's 27-24 loss in Indianapolis. His progress is still worth keeping an eye one, given that he was spotted with a harness over the shoulder while practicing Wednesday, per Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald. Tannehill draws a Week 13 home matchup with a Buffalo defense ranked second in yards allowed per pass attempt (6.4) and first in passing yards allowed per game (194) this season.
Tannehill said he didn't have any issues with his (right) throwing shoulder in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Colts, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Tannehill completed 17 of 25 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns, helping the Dolphins take a 10-point lead early in the fourth quarter. The team fell apart down the stretch, but Tannehill wasn't the problem so much as sieve-like defense and questionable play-calling. The 30-year-old quarterback answered any questions about the health of his shoulder on a 74-yard touchdown pass to Leonte Carroo, though the ball was slightly underthrown. A limited practice participant all last week, Tannehill may be ready for full participation heading into a Week 13 home matchup with a tough Buffalo defense that has allowed just 6.4 yards per pass attempt this season.
