Reports: Titans acquire Tannehill from Dolphins

Tennessee sent a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a seventh-round pick in 2019 to Miami for Tannehill and a sixth-round pick. In Tennessee, Tannehill will back up starter Marcus Mariota. Miami has a huge quarterback void to fill, and seems likely to look toward the draft to do so.

The restructured deal with Tennessee is a 1-year contract with $7M fully guaranteed, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Tannehill isn't the only long-serving member of his former team moving on this offseason, either.

His contract was to balloon to £14.1m in base salary this year, and he would have counted £20m against the salary cap. The Dolphins will save $33 million in cap over the next two seasons and are adding a 4th-round pick in 2020.

Tannehill now reunites with veteran defensive end Cameron Wake, who signed a three-year, $23 million deal with the Titans earlier this week.

The ABC hosts debated whether an impostor had traveled with Trump to Alabama to check on tornado damage and survivors. The White House did not respond to a request for comment on who specifically Trump thought had doctored the photos.

It was widely rumored that Tannehill, once expected to be the team's savior, would leave. He missed the entire 2017 season with the Dolphins after suffering a torn ACL early in training camp.

The injuries also sapped some of what made Tannehill an intriguing quarterback early in his career: athleticism, ability to make plays when they break down and a strong arm with precise accuracy. General manager Jon Robinson said Friday that Gabbert will be released.

We've known for awhile the Dolphins were trying to move their QB of the past few years. You could argue that he and Tannehill are incredibly similar - both are athletic, accurate quarterbacks and their playing style feels similar.

A native of Lubbock, TX, Tannehill heads into his eighth National Football League season.

It's unknown whether the Dolphins have any interest in the quarterback.
