Miami Dolphins trade Ryan Tannehill to Titans for draft picks

Adjust Comment Print

The Miami Dolphins are in desperate need for a starting level quarterback in 2019 after they traded former 1st-round pick Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans on Friday.

The Titans will send a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a 2019 seventh-round selection to the Dolphins, who will also ship a 2019 sixth-round pick to Tennessee.

The Dolphins chose to move on from Tannehill earlier this offseason and they've spent the last few weeks actively pursuing a trade.

Sirens rang out in southern Israel early Friday and the Israeli military said it identified four "launches" from Gaza. Israel's Channel 10 news, citing anonymous military officials, said the rockets were Iranian-made Fajr rockets.

Tannehill, in all likelihood, was going to be released by the Dolphins this offseason, pending what they could figure out in the quarterback market.

Blaine Gabbert served as Mariota's back-up last season.

In his last National Football League season, Kaepernick threw for 2,241 yards and 16 touchdowns. But he didn't have enough of them and then injuries really hit, including an ACL injury that wiped out his 2017 season.

Tannehill's skill set should fit well behind Mariota as both players rely on accuracy and movement to succeed.

He was the first quarterback taken in the top round since Dan Marino. Titans general manager Jon Robinson got creative in a trade to find the best option to fill the role. The 21-year-old, a committed Christian, has played two years for Nick Saban, who formerly coached the Dolphins.

Tannehill threw for 230 passing yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in Miami's 27-20 win over the Titans in Week One of the 2018 season.
