Davie (Sun Sentinel) — The Miami Dolphins have traded quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans along with a 4th round pick in 2020 for a 4th round draft pick in 2020 and a 7th round pick at this year's draft, according to our news partners at the Sun Sentinel.
The Dolphins, along with their new head coach Brian Flores, had made it clear they were planning to move on from Tannehill, who had battled with injuries and inconsistency over his 7 years in Miami. Tannehill reportedly agreed to adjust his base salary from a $18.75 million deal, to a $7 million dollar base salary, with incentives adding up to as much as $12 million. The Dolphins clear $13.4 million in cap space, which they can now use in free agency.
“We would like to thank Ryan for his commitment to the Miami Dolphins over the last seven seasons,” said Dolphins General Manager Chris Grier in a statement. “Ryan is a tireless worker who always put the team first. We wish him the best with the next step of his career.”
The move leaves many wondering what the Dolphins' plans at quarterback might be moving forward. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater officially turned out the Dolphins offer to play in Miami on Thursday, instead choosing to resign with the New Orleans Saints.
