Tannehill traded to Titans

In order to make the trade work, the 30-year-old Tannehill has restructured his contract, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

It's no surprise the Miami Dolphins shipped off Ryan Tannehill.

The Titans also received a 2019 sixth-round pick in the swap.

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

Their attempt to get Teddy Bridgewater failed, which leaves them with only Luke Falk and Jake Rudock at quarterback.

From a Dolphins perspective, this trade sets the Dolphins up in a very good position salary cap wise and draft pick wise moving forward.

It's going to be hard for them to find a starting quarterback who can really help them compete in what is becoming an increasingly hard division.

Tannehill will be expected to back up the Titans current QB Marcus Mariota who was drafted by the Titans second overall in the 2015 NFL Draft.

This isn't a move that many saw coming, but that doesn't mean it's a senseless move at all.

His time with the Dolphins was marred by mediocrity and injuries. Mariota, the second overall pick in the 2015 draft, never has played a full National Football League season and is 27-28 as a starter.

Not exactly the most recognizable names, are they? You could argue that he and Tannehill are incredibly similar - both are athletic, accurate quarterbacks and their playing style feels similar. Now the Titans have multiple options, both for the short- and long-term.
