I'll make another bold prediction. Watch Miami offer Cutler 5 million next year to back up Tannehill. I'm also guessing Miami has a set price for Landry at around 8 million a year and he walks.
Cleveland GM Sashi Brown was just fired. Mike Silver is reporting that Brown had all say over personnel and the current QBs were not who Hue Jackson wanted. Hue Jackson's job is safe for 2018.
Where am I going with this you ask? There was some discussion about Hue Jackson as a candidate for the Miami job prior to Gase's hiring. One of the key points, and Tannenbaum requirement, was that Jackson really liked Ryan Tannehill. Now that Jackson has won his power struggle in Cleveland and they will get a new GM, some trade possibilities begin to pop up.
Cleveland currently has the following picks in the draft:
Two 1st Rounders
Three 2nd Rounders
One 3rd Rounder
Two 4th Rounders
Two 5th Rounders
One 6th Rounder
One 7th Rounder
Their roster is full of young talent, especially on the defensive side of the ball. They have a ton of cap space, and we saw they were willing to take on a big contract for a guy they could easily cut (Brock Osweiler). With the Ravens aging, Big Ben dabbling with possible retirement, and Cincy in flux, would Cleveland make a bold trade for one Ryan Tannehill?
They could literally deal away their 2nd day of the draft for him, and spend a high pick on a guy Hue Jackson would like to groom. The only 1st Rd prospect who seems ready to start Day 1 is Josh Rosen. Cleveland could make power moves for both the short and long term.
Why would Miami do it? Gase likes Jay Cutler, and word from the beat writers is Cutler wants to play another year. If Miami can get Gase's QB of choice in the 1st Round knowing that they'll have a ton of Day 2 picks to restock the OL and LBs then it makes you think.
Miami lacks cap room. Mike Tannenbaum certainly likes to wheel and deal on draft day. It might not be as crazy as it sounds, especially if Miami has a successful December with Cutler at the helm.
This all just sort of formulated in my head after I read about Sashi Brown's power and the rift that developed between him and Jackson. Crazier things have certainly happened (see the Minnesota deal for Sam Bradford when they knew they had a good enough cast to support a decent QB).
