The Tennessee Titans have acquired Ryan Tannehill from the Miami Dolphins. Tennessee has signed the 30-year-old signal caller to a one-year deal that is reportedly worth $7 million in fully guaranteed money, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

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.

One of those teams who is looking to tank next season is the Miami Dolphins.

Tannehill was drafted by the Dolphins in the first round of the 2012 draft. Tannehill was never able to take the next step in his development.

The Dolphins do need a starting quarterback, so it is possible Bridgewater could find himself as the lead signal-caller in Miami. Bridgewater hasn't gotten much of an opportunity since suffering a gruesome knee injury with the Vikings in 2016.

His career passer rating of 87.0 is the second-highest in franchise history, behind only the 94.5 compiled by Chad Pennington from 2008-10. The belief is Miami might be willing to eschew taking a quarterback in the first round this year in order to set itself up to take one in next year's draft.

The Dolphins' desire to add a quarterback this offseason is headed in the opposite direction.

Tannehill had 16 300-yard passing games for the Dolphins, topped by his 431-yard performance in a 24-21 overtime loss against Arizona during his rookie season. You could argue that he and Tannehill are incredibly similar - both are athletic, accurate quarterbacks and their playing style feels similar. It is a decent deal for the Dolphins that is at least comparable to the trade Denver made for Joe Flacco. That trade came three weeks after the Dolphins signed Chad Pennington, who would go on to lead them to the AFC East title.
