Miami Dolphins trade Ryan Tannehill to Titans for draft picks

15 March 2019

The Dolphins faced an uphill battle to flip Ryan for assets, given his bloated cap figure, so getting anything in return for him is a win for Miami. He had a wildly uneven season a year ago that ended badly.

The Dolphins will get a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a seventh-round pick this year, while the Titans will receive Tannehill and a sixth-round pick in 2019.

Tannehill, a first-round pick (eight overall) by the Dolphins in the 2012 NFL Draft, will join quarterback Marcus Mariota on the team's roster.

He departs Miami with a career 62.8 completion percentage and an 87 passer rating, and left money on the table. He originally entered the National Football League as a first-round pick (eighth overall) by the Dolphins in the 2012 National Football League draft. He missed the 2017 season with a knee injury.

Tannehill's time in Miami was coming to a close with a new regime in place.

Tannehill played collegiately at Texas A&M, where he threw for 5,450 yards and 42 touchdowns in 50 games, with 25 starts. Tannehill was named the team's Ed Block Courage Award recipient in 2018 and the Dan Marino Team MVP in 2014. One of those teams who is looking to tank next season is the Miami Dolphins.
