First, Tannehill was reunited with Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman, his former head coach at Texas A&M. Next is was Dolphins assistant quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor.http://blogs.sun-sentinel.com/sports_fo ... -jump.html
Then it was Tannehill’s No. 2 wide receiver with the Aggies, Jeff Fuller, who was one of 16 undrafted free agents signed by the Dolphins last week.
The latest connection? Dolphins third-round draft pick Michael Egnew, a tight end from Missouri.
How do they know each other?
“I ran track against him, played him in football,” Egnew said Friday after a rookie minicamp. “We were in the same district so we competed against each other.”
Yeah, the triple jump.
“I mean, I won,” Egnew said. “I did pretty well in triple jump, but he’s a heck of an athlete. He’s really good.”
To be fair, I came across an article from 2006 that shows Tannehill defeated Egnew in a Class 4A, District 4 meet.
No, there’s no hard feelings regardless of who owned the rivalry. Tannehill and Egnew are rooming together this weekend in a Plantation hotel, and they seem to be getting along – good for a potential red zone combination.
