Dolphins Trade QB Ryan Tannehill to Titans for Draft Picks

A native of Jackson, Miss. The Dolphins get a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a 2019 seventh-round pick, and the Titans get Tannehill and a 2019 sixth-round pick according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Paying big-time money for a backup quarterback has proven to be a viable approach (see: the Eagles and Nick Foles) and it makes all the sense in the world for the Titans, a team with Marcus Mariota now positioned as its starter. Miami has a huge quarterback void to fill, and seems likely to look toward the draft to do so.

Tannehill received a one-year deal from the Titans that will pay him $7 million with the possibility for more than $12 million.

His contract was to balloon to $18.7 million in base salary this year, and he would have counted $26.6 million against the salary cap.

Tannehill entered the league in 2012 as the eighth overall pick with the Dolphins, but he never lived up to his lofty draft status. But they did get trade value out of a player they were set to release this offseason.

He departs Miami with a career 62.8 completion percentage and an 87 passer rating, and left money on the table. In 11 starts, he completed 64.2 percent of his passes for 1,979 yards and 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

It was widely rumored that Tannehill, once expected to be the team's savior, would leave.

From the Titans' end the move is probably a reaction, in part, to Marcus Mariota's constant healthy issues.

Mariota, 25, hasn't played a full 16-game season in his career. He had a wildly uneven season a year ago that ended badly. Both have had minimal playing time under center.

In order to make the trade work, the 30-year-old Tannehill has restructured his contract, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.
