Dolphins Trade QB Ryan Tannehill to Titans for Draft Picks

Colin Kaepernick

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.

Miami will get a 2020 fourth round pick and a seventh round pick in this year's draft in exchange for Tannehill.

Tannehill received a one-year deal from the Titans that will pay him $7 million with the possibility for more than $12 million.

Past year head coach Adam Gase said that Tannehill had yet to reach his ceiling.

The Fins have virtually no backup QB. You could argue that he and Tannehill are incredibly similar - both are athletic, accurate quarterbacks and their playing style feels similar.

One possibility is Tuanigamanuolepola "Tua" Tagovailoa, the quarterback of NCAA champion Alabama Crimson Tide. He hasn't played a full season in two years.

A detail of the official National Football League NFL logo is seen painted on the turf as the New York Giants host the Atlanta Falcons during their NFC Wild Card Playoff game at MetLife Stadium on January 8, 2012 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

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

To that part, the Dolphins recently hosted quarterback Teddy Bridgewater on a free-agent visit before Bridgewater elected to re-sign with the New Orleans Saints. In Tennessee, Tannehill will back up starter Marcus Mariota.
