Miami Dolphins trade Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans

The Miami Dolphins have traded Ryan Tannehill to the Tennesse Titans.

According to Ian Rappoport of NFL Network, the Dolphins are receiving a 4th round pick in 2020 and the 2019 7th round pick. Tennessee gets a 6th round pick in 2019 and Tannehill.

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

Tannehill's departure from Miami had been expected. He became the Dolphins' starting quarterback as a rookie in 2012 and has still never taken a postseason snap.

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. His agent tweeted that as part of the trade, Tannehill signed a one-year deal with the Titans.
