The Miami Dolphins have traded Ryan Tannehill to the Tennesse Titans.

According to Ian Rappoport of NFL Network, the Dolphins are receiving a 4th round pick in 2020 and the 2019 7th round pick. Tennessee gets a 6th round pick in 2019 and Tannehill.

Teddy Bridgewater recently turned down an offer to play in Miami and re-signed with the New Orleans Saints.

Tannehill's departure from Miami had been expected. He became the Dolphins' starting quarterback as a rookie in 2012 and has still never taken a postseason snap.

His contract was to balloon to $18.7 million in base salary this year, and he would have counted $26.6 million against the salary cap. His agent tweeted that as part of the trade, Tannehill signed a one-year deal with the Titans.
