Tennessee Titans Trade For QB Ryan Tannehill

As part of the deal, Tannehill's salary will be cut from the $18.725 million he was scheduled to make in 2019 to $7 million in guaranteed money with up to $5 million more in incentives, according to NFL Network.

Tannehill will back up Marcus Mariota at quarterback. Miami has a huge quarterback void to fill, and seems likely to look toward the draft to do so.

But Tannehill never lived up to expectations in Miami.

So from that perspective, it's quite logical to make the move for Tannehill, especially when it doesn't cost them anything more than a fourth-round pick down the road.

He's 42-46 as a starter with a 62.8-percent completion rate, 20,434 passing yards, 123 touchdowns and 75 interceptions.

Brown trade expected by Friday; Jets, Cardinals out of mix
Although the Steelers would emerge victorious, a Baltimore Ravens victory in Week 17 would wind up costing them a spot in the playoffs.

The deal with Tennessee marks the first time the Dolphins have traded a veteran quarterback since 2008 when they sent Josh McCown to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a seventh-round pick.

The past two seasons have been marred by injuries as Tannehill missed all of the 2017 season due to a knee injury suffered in training camp.

For the Titans, they've been looking for multiple seasons to find a top-end backup as injury insurance for Mariota.

Tannehill's skill set should fit well behind Mariota as both players rely on accuracy and movement to succeed. Titans general manager Jon Robinson got creative in a trade to find the best option to fill the role. Dan Marino's career passer rating was 86.4, but he played under different rules and there's no one who would argue about him being the greatest quarterback in franchise history.
