Titans trade for QB Ryan Tannehill

Titans trade for QB Ryan Tannehill

Tannehill's agency, SportsTrust Advisors, announced the move on Twitter.

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.

The Dolphins will receive a fourth round pick in 2020 and a seventh rounder in 2019 while the Titans will also acquire a 2019 sixth rounder along with Tannehill.

The Dolphins faced an uphill battle to flip Ryan for assets, given his bloated cap figure, so getting anything in return for him is a win for Miami. And his departure doesn't come as a big surprise when considering reports surfaced that the team was expected to go a different direction at the quarterback position under head coach Brian Flores. Tennessee gets a 6th round pick in 2019 and Tannehill.

O'Rourke, whose given name is Robert Francis, acquired his nickname while growing up in El Paso, Texas. O'Rourke is the 15th Democrat in the field and the second from Texas, and his opponents took notice.

He was the first quarterback taken in the top round since Dan Marino. He originally entered the National Football League as a first-round pick (eighth overall) by the Dolphins in the 2012 National Football League draft.

@Titans have traded for and signed @ryantannehill1 to a one year contract.

He'll become the backup to Titans starter Marcus Mariota, who missed time during the 2018 season with a shoulder issue. He's also battled injuries for nearly all of his career, and the Titans have struggled when Mariota has missed time.
