Titans Acquire Ryan Tannehill From Dolphins

15 March 2019

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

The Tennessee Titans have acquired Ryan Tannehill from the Miami Dolphins. In exchange, the Dolphins will receive a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a seventh-round pick in 2019.

Tannehill's new contract is for $7 million for one season and is fully guaranteed. He had a wildly uneven season a year ago that ended badly. His career completion percentage is 62.8 percent, and his career passer rating is 87.0.

In 2018, Tannehill started 11 games for the Dolphins, and he completed 176-of-274 passes for 1,979 yards and 17 touchdowns, with nine interceptions. He did not play in 2017 due to injury.

Tannehill's time in Miami was coming to a close with a new regime in place. He became the Dolphins' starting quarterback as a rookie in 2012 and has still never taken a postseason snap. The belief is Miami might be willing to eschew taking a quarterback in the first round this year in order to set itself up to take one in next year's draft.

The Titans' current quarterback is the oft-injured Marcus Mariota, the former second-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
