The Miami Dolphins have signed quarterback Ryan Tannehill to an extension that will keep him under contract through the 2020 season, the team announced Monday.
Walker: Dolphins take smart risk with Tannehill[/paste:font]
Securing promising quarterback Ryan Tannehill with a six-year, $96 million extension is a calculated risk for the Dolphins, but a worthwhile one, James Walker writes.
The deal is worth $96 million, including $45 million in guaranteed money, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Tannehill initially was under contract through the 2016 season after the Dolphins picked up his fifth-year option this offseason.
Tannehill thrived last season in his first year under offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, completing 66.4 percent of his passes for 4,045 yards, 27 touchdowns, 12 interceptions and a 92.8 passer rating.
"We are thrilled that we were able to sign Ryan to an extension," Dolphins vice president Mike Tannenbaum said in a statement. "He is an ascending talent, a team leader and checks all of the boxes you are looking for at the position."
Mike Wallace, cutting Brandon Gibson and letting Brian Hartline leave in free agency. Miami acquired receiver Kenny Stills in a trade with the New Orleans Saints, signed veteran Greg Jenningsand drafted rookie DeVante Parker in the first round.
The 26-year-old Tannehill was Miami's first-round draft selection -- the eighth overall pick -- in 2012 and has started all 48 games in the past three seasons. Miami has gone 23-25 in those games.
Tannehill is the first quarterback to receive an extension from the 2012 draft class, which also included the Colts' Andrew Luck, the Redskins' Robert Griffin III and the Seahawks' Russell Wilson.
He is Miami's equivalent to Romo
you had a dude's balls in your mouth
In the words of BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE.... Thank you captain obvious!!
2020 is the year Tom Brady will retire.
No he isn't.
Romo is a great QB and worth his contract.
I think Tanney will be okay. He is probably not the top tier, but he made big strides last year, and has some new weapons in his offensive arsenal.
As a LA Ram.
He'll be in the pro bowl this year
After Manning, Brady, Flacco, Big Ben, Luck and Rivers decide not to play in the Pro Bowl.
Unless Suh will restructure his contract the will be totally fucked in a couple years.
