One day after being spurned by free agent Teddy Bridgewater, the Dolphins traded 2018 starter Ryan Tannehill and a sixth-round draft pick in 2019 to Tennessee on Friday for a seventh-round pick this year and a fourth-rounder in 2020. According to a release from Tannehill's agency, the former Dolphins starter signed a one-year deal with the Titans. "We wish him the best with the next step of his career".
Tannehill's time in Miami was coming to a close with a new regime in place.
Tannehill will not count against the Dolphins salary cap in 2020. They have been actively examining quarterbacks in the 2019 National Football League draft class, and they seem to be a strong candidate to select a prospect in the first round of this year's draft or the next one.

A Labour Party spokesman said: "Allowing a free vote on no deal shows Theresa May has given up any pretence of leading the country".
He missed five games this past season due to a shoulder injury but was able to return for the team's final five games leading the club to a 7-9 record.
The Dolphins are obviously moving in a new direction but where the Dolphins turn to find their next quarterback is anyone's guess at this point. That trade came three weeks after the Dolphins signed Chad Pennington, who would go on to lead them to the AFC East title.
Tannehill's skill set should fit well behind Mariota as both players rely on accuracy and movement to succeed.
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.
