Dolphins trade quarterback Ryan Tannehill to Tennessee Titans

Ryan Tannehill’s reign as the starting quarterback for the Miami Dolphins is finally over.

In the offseason’s most-anticipated roster move, the Dolphins traded the team’s starting quarterback for most of the past seven seasons to the Tennessee Titans on Friday. Miami also shipped out a 2019 sixth-round pick while receiving a 2020 fourth-round selection and a 2019 seventh-rounder.

The Dolphins had been conspicuously non-committal on Tannehill since the end of the 2018 season, hinting that a trade or his release was on the horizon.

“We would like to thank Ryan for his commitment to the Miami Dolphins over the last seven seasons,” Dolphins General Manager Chris Grier said. “Ryan is a tireless worker who always put the team first. We wish him the best with the next step of his career.”
