The Miami Dolphins traded Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans on Friday afternoon, severely shaking up the quarterback situation in Tennessee and leaving us wondering what is happening in Miami.

Tannehill has signed a new one-year contract for $7 million guaranteed and worth up to $12 million with incentives, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the deal.

The Titans will send a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a 2019 seventh-round selection to the Dolphins, who will also ship a 2019 sixth-round pick to Tennessee.

The details of the trade, as broken by ESPN's Adam Schefter, involves Tannehill and a 2019 6th-round pick going to Tennessee in return for a 2019 7th-round pick and a 2020 4th-round pick. Paying big-time money for a backup quarterback has proven to be a viable approach (see: the Eagles and Nick Foles) and it makes all the sense in the world for the Titans, a team with Marcus Mariota now positioned as its starter. The Dolphins haven't really been linked to many quarterbacks in the upcoming 2019 NFL Draft, but that's largely a result of where they're picking. Rudock has appeared in three, completing 3-of-5 passes for 24 yards and an interception.

The Ryan Tannehill era is over in Miami.

From the Titans' end the move is probably a reaction, in part, to Marcus Mariota's constant healthy issues. Mariota has games in all four of his National Football League seasons for a variety of injuries, including knee, hamstring, arm and shoulder. Titans general manager Jon Robinson got creative in a trade to find the best option to fill the role.
