Ryan Tannehill traded to Titans

The Tennessee Titans made a bold move Friday afternoon to strengthen their backup quarterback position, acquiring long-time Miami Dolphins starter Ryan Tannehill.
The Titans picked up Tannehill and the Dolphins’ sixth-round pick in this year’s draft in exchange for the Titans’ seventh-round choice this year and a fourth-round pick in 2020.
Tannehill, a first-round pick of the Dolphins (eighth overall) in 2012 from Texas A&M, should significantly upgrade the Titans behind starter Marcus Mariota, who missed three games last season, including the regular-season finale against Indianapolis with a playoff berth hanging in the balance.
Blaine Gabbert started the three games Mariota missed in 2018 and went 2-1, but threw a costly interception in the Titans’ loss to the Colts that eliminated Tennessee from playoff consideration.
Tannehill was reportedly given a one-year, $7 million restructured deal by the Titans.
During his seven seasons in Miami, Tannehill completed 1,829-of-2,911 passes (62.8 pct.) for 20,434 yards and 123 touchdowns. Tannehill has a career completion percentage of 62.8 and an 87.0 career passer rating. Both those stats are second in Dolphins history.
Tannehill also has mobility, which should help the Titans not to have to modify their offensive game plans too much if he has to come in and play for Mariota in the midst of a game.
