May 9, 2018 2018 offseason, Jason Lieser.

The Dolphins are one of the lowest-spending teams in the NFL when it comes to quarterbacks this season, and one reason they’re able to do that is a Ryan Tannehill contract that looks increasingly reasonable with every new deal that’s signed. ...

The average salary of his original deal — the total money coming his way has stayed the same — at remains $19.3 million, which ranks 18th in the league each of the next two seasons and 10th in 2020. In the 2015 and ’16 seasons, he ranked 21st and 12th in passer rating, respectively, so the money lands right around what his production has been. ...

The $8.7 million he counts for this year is the 24th-biggest cap hit among NFL quarterbacks this season. His hit jumps to fifth next year and seventh the year after, though that will likely drop in the rankings once new deals are awarded to guys like Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson.




So it is reasonable contract now and next year he will be the 5th and year after 7th highest paid qb in the league. Is that still supposed to be reasonable? And after 2 other qb's deals are done maybe he drops to 7th and 9th. I hope his play/production rank matches up with his pay rank then. Seems like that is the only way to make it reasonable.

People forget that Tannehill's contract isn't a franchise QB contract. In fact, it is a "prove it" quarterback contract for a decent starting QB. I'm happy with Tannehill.

After further investigation, Miami can get out of his deal without too much pain next year. $18.75 million savings if cut Pre June 1 with $7 million in dead money.

The only issue would be his agent asking for an extension should he have a Pro Bowl caliber year in 2018.

Next year looks like another decent QB year in the draft.

I was on the David Fales train but now I'd like to see if Gase can transform Bryce Petty into the talent he was supposed to be. He has a live arm and is very intelligent. Question is can he process the NFL game. Coming from that one read system made him a project.
