Titans Trade for Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill

Colin Kaepernick

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

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.

Tannehill's deal reportedly reaches $12 million when playtime and other incentives are taken into consideration. Tennessee gets a 6th round pick in 2019 and Tannehill. The only two on the depth chart are Luke Falk, a rookie from Washington state; and Jake Rudock, a three-year veteran out of MI.

Tannehill was drafted by the Dolphins in the first round of the 2012 draft.

Teddy Bridgewater recently turned down an offer to play in Miami and re-signed with the New Orleans Saints. Maybe they're fine with that? While he never established himself as a great starter, Tannehill should be an excellent backup quarterback for Marcus Mariota.

@Titans have traded for and signed @ryantannehill1 to a one year contract. You could argue that he and Tannehill are incredibly similar - both are athletic, accurate quarterbacks and their playing style feels similar. The Titans are trying to compete this year and they don't know if they can trust their starting quarterback enough to stay healthy, much less extend him over a lengthy period of time.
