Dolphins trade quarterback Ryan Tannehill to Tennessee

The Titans have agreed to a trade with the Miami Dolphins that will send quarterback Ryan Tannehill to Tennessee.

In exchange, the Dolphins get a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a seventh-round pick in 2019. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the deal is a one-year contract worth $7 million guaranteed, plus a chance to increase to $12 million based on playing time.

Tannehill's agency, SportsTrust Advisors, announced the move on Twitter.

Ryan Tannehill #17 of the Miami Dolphins looks to throw a pass during the first half against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium on September 30, 2018 in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

The Fins have virtually no backup QB. He originally entered the National Football League as a first-round pick (eighth overall) by the Dolphins in the 2012 National Football League draft. You could argue that he and Tannehill are incredibly similar - both are athletic, accurate quarterbacks and their playing style feels similar.

Another possibility is Kyler Murray, the Heisman Trophy victor from Oklahoma, who worked out with the Dolphins yesterday.

Teddy Bridgewater recently turned down an offer to play in Miami and re-signed with the New Orleans Saints.

Tannehill, who hasn't appear in any playoff games since Miami drafted him eighth overall in 2012, will back up Titans starter Marcus Mariota.
