Dolphins extend contract of QB Ryan Tannehill through 2020


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) Calling Ryan Tannehill an "ascending talent," the Dolphins have extended the contract of their franchise quarterback through 2020, per the Palm Beach Post, which is further reporting that he will likely earn more than $15 million per season.

Tannehill peaked in 2014, throwing for a career-high 4,045 yards and 27 touchdowns with just 12 interceptions.

"He is an ascending talent, a team leader and he checks all of the boxes you are looking for at the position," said Miami executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum.

Added general manager Dennis Hickey: "He's a proven quarterback in this league that combines skillset with work ethic, passion, toughness, and a team-first mentality."

The Dolphins had already exercised their fifth-year option on Tannehill's rookie deal, but their latest move adds at least four more years to his time in Miami.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) The Dolphins announced that they have exercised the fifth-year option on quarterback Ryan Tannehill's rookie contract, confirming reports that broke earlier in the week.

The option will keep Tannehill under contract through the 2016 season. He'll be paid $15 million for the final year of the contract. 


Report: Dolphins exercise fifth-year option on Ryan Tannehill


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) The Dolphins have reportedly exercised their fifth-yer team option on quarterback Ryan Tannehill, locking him up through the 2016 season, according to Pro Football Talk.

Tannehill will earn $15 million in 2016 based on the contract clause for Miami to pick up his option. Tannehill threw for a career-high 4,045 yards with 27 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2014.


Dolphins haven't decided if they'll extend Ryan Tannehill's contract


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Dolphins executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said the club has yet to decide if it will extend quarterback Ryan Tannehill, according to the Palm Beach Post

The Dolphins could decide to pick up Tannehill's fifth-year option and wait on an extension. The deadline for doing so is May 3. Doing that would cost the Dolphins $15 million for the 2016 season. 

Previously, NFL.com reported that the Dolphins were hopeful that they could strike a long-term deal with Tannehill before Week 1 of the 2015 season. 

In 2014, Tannehill threw for 4,045 yards with 27 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.


Dolphins have until May 3 to decide on option for Ryan Tannehill


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) The Dolphins are on the clock with quarterback Ryan Tannehill, according to ESPN.com. The team has until May 3 to decide whether they want to exercise their fifth-year option on Tannehill through the 2016 season, worth approximately $15 million.

The team is expected to pick up the option if they cannot reach a long-term extension with him. Tannehill had his best season in 2014, throwing for 4,045 yards with 27 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.


Report: Dolphins looking to keep QB Ryan Tannehill past 2016


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) The Dolphins don't just want quarterback Ryan Tannehill on the field for Week 1, they want him locked up on a long-term contract, according to NFL.com.

If a new deal cannot be struck, the team can still exercise his fifth-year option that will keep Tannehill in Miami through the 2016 season for about $16 million. But the Dolphins are hoping they are not forced to make that a reality.

Tannehill performed well enough in 2014 to motivate the front office to work on a new contract. He set a franchise record for completions with 392 while tossing 27 touchdowns and just 12 interceptions. He racked up 4,045 yards in the process.


Report: Dolphins will use option on Ryan Tannehill if no deal is reached


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) While the Dolphins will spend the next six weeks trying to finalize a long-term contract with quarterback Ryan Tannehill, if no deal can be reached, the team plans to exercise its fifth-year option on his contract, sources told the Sun Sentinel.

If the option is used, Tannehill would earn nearly $16 million in 2016.

"We like the player a lot. Our hope and expectation is he'll be here for a long time," Dolphins vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said. "When a long-term deal gets done, I don't have a timetable right now."

The option must be utilized by May 1.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross confirmed the team's interest when he said Monday he would like to discuss a long-term contract with Tannehill this offseason, reports the Palm Beach Post.


Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill clears air with Mike Wallace


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Dolphins' WR Mike Wallace was benched in the second half of the season finale, and it's uncertain if the team will keep him in 2015. 

The Dolphins can save $6.9 million by cutting Wallace in the offseason, but his quarterback has his back. 

Ryan Tannehill told the Miami Herald he settled any issues with Wallace after the tumultuous final game. "We cleared the air," Tannehill said. "There's no problem there."

Despite that, Tannehill isn't sure if Wallace will return. 

"I like Mike," he told the Palm Beach Post. "He’s a talented player and we’ll see what happens. It’s tough to lose a guy that works hard day in and day out at practice, but at the end of the day it’s a reminder that it’s a business. It doesn’t matter the kind of player you are or the type of relationship you have, it comes down to numbers."


GM Dennis Hickey: Dolphins will explore all options with Ryan Tannehill


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey reiterated that the team will explore all options with Ryan Tannehill, according to NFL.com. The Sun Sentinel reported last week that the Dolphins are discussing a long-term extension with the fourth-year quarterback, with the "framework being a seven-year contract worth about $105 million (depending on incentives)."

"We feel really good about Ryan," Hickey said. "The market is what it is. We're excited about his future as our quarterback."

Tannehill is due $660,000 in 2015, plus a $1.5 million roster bonus. He set career highs in passing yards (4,045) and passing touchdowns (27) while throwing a career-low 12 interceptions last season. He has yet to make an appearance in the postseason.


Report: Dolphins discussing long-term deal with Ryan Tannehill


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/9/2015) The Dolphins are discussing a long-term extension with fourth-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill, a source told the South Florida Sun Sentinel, with the "framework being a seven-year contract worth about $105 million (depending on incentives)."

The paper said the general idea is a $15 million annual salary with only the first two years guaranteed.

Miami has three options regarding Tannehill, per the paper. The team can let him play out the last year of his contract at $2.1 million and allow him to hit free agency; pick up his fifth-year option for 2016 at roughly $15 million, money that would be guaranteed in case of injury; or negotiate an extension.

Tannehill set career highs in passing yards (4,045) and passing touchdowns (27) while throwing a career-low 12 interceptions last season. He has yet to lead the Dolphins to the playoffs.


Dolphins sold on QB Ryan Tannehill


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/21/2015) Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey said the team is excited about third-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill as the long-term starter, reports the Miami Herald. Tannehill set career highs this season in passing yards (4,045) and passing touchdowns (27) while throwing a career-low 12 interceptions.

"We're excited about what Ryan has brought to the Dolphins," Hickey said. "We're excited about his future with the Dolphins."

The paper said the team must decide whether to negotiate a long-term contract extension with Tannehill "or simply exercise a one-year injury guarantee option that extends Tannehill through the 2016 season."

Tannehill is due $660,000 in 2015, plus a $1.5 million roster bonus.


Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill surpasses 4,000 passing yards


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill capped off his career year when he was able to surpass 4,000 passing yards during the Dolphins’ 37-24 loss to the Jets.

Tannehill threw for 259 yards against the Jets in Week 17 which enabled him to become first Dolphins' quarterback since Dan Marino to throw more than 4,000 passing yards in a season. Tannehill completed 23 of his 39 pass attempts and also threw for one touchdown pass. Tannehill connected with Charles Clay for a 23-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.

During the game, Tannehill also broke Marino's record for most completions in a season for the Dolphins. He finished the season with 4,045 passing yards, 27 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions.


Consistency remains out of Ryan Tannehill's grasp


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill snapped a streak of disappointing performances in Week 16 against the Vikings, as he put together arguably the finest performance of his career.

Tannehill, who has found his greatest success this season when utilizing his legs, did it all with his arm Sunday. He racked up 396 yards through the air on 35 of 47 passing, the second-best total of his career, and added a career-best four touchdowns, while tossing one interception as well.

Tannehill has taken his game to another level this season, but consistency remains an issue. He has scored 30-plus points in two of the last five games, but had just 40 in the other three combined. He had consecutive 20-plus-point games just twice overall, heading into Week 17 against the Jets.

With the Dolphins announcing they will be keeping coach Joe Philbin around for the 2015 season, Tannehill's job should be secure. His upside is apparent, but he has still shown it only in flashes. He shouldn't be viewed as a top-10 quarterback for Fantasy purposes heading into the offseason. 


Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill has career day vs. Vikings


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had the best game of his career to help lead the Dolphins to a 37-35 win over the Vikings Sunday.

Tannehill completed 35 of his 47 pass attempts to go along with a career-high four touchdowns and 396 passing yards. After not posting a 300-yard passing game all season, Tannehill has now thrown for more than 300 yards in two consecutive games.

If Tannehill can throw for 215 yards in the season finale, it will mark the first time in his career he surpassed 4,000 passing yards in a season.

The Dolphins host the Jets in the final game of the season.


Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill posts first 300-yard performance


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill surpassed the 300-yard threshold for the first time this season in Sunday's 41-13 defeat to the Patriots in Week 15.

Tannehill's only touchdown pass came on a desperation 32-yard pass to Mike Wallace, who made an acrobatic catch in the end zone with five seconds remaining in the first half. He was picked off by Duron Harmon in the second quarter and Patrick Chung in the third quarter. Tannehill completed 29 of 47 passes for a season-high 346 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. He rushed for 21 yards on three carries.

Tannehill has passed for 3,390 yards with 22 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He has two games left to surpass the 4,000-yard mark for the first time in his three-year career.

Miami will face Minnesota at home in Week 16.


Ryan Tannehill fading at the wrong time


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill posted another subpar effort in Week 14, in a 28-13 loss to the Ravens.

Tannehill had just 15 Fantasy points in Sunday's game, though he avoided any sort of mistakes in the loss. He just did little of note as the Dolphins offense fell completely silent after a few strong early drives. He picked up 227 yards though the air in the game, but rushed for just 6 on two carries, his fifth straight game with fewer than 20 rushing yards.

From Week 4 to Week 9, Tannehill averaged 24.0 Fantasy points per game, a good chunk of which came with his legs, as he averaged 45.4 yards per game on the ground. In five games since, he has just 50 rushing yards total, and is averaging 17.6 Fantasy points per game.

Tannehill is a solid enough passer, but the Dolphins really found another level of success when he was involved as a runner. With teams slowing him down on the ground, Fantasy owners should probably steer clear of Tannehill down the stretch. 


Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill fails to impress Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 23 of his 33 pass attempts for 227 yards during a 28-13 loss to the Ravens Sunday.

Tannehill’s lone touchdown came on a 3-yard pass to wide receiver Brian Hartline. The 227 passing yards helped Tannehill surpass 10,000 passing yards for his career. He also added 6 rushing yards on two attempts. Tannehill has not thrown for more than 300 yards in any game this season.

The Dolphins play at New England Week 15.


Ryan Tannehill struggles in lackluster victory


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/1/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was held without a touchdown for the first time this season in Monday's 16-13 win at the Jets. Tannehill completed 25 of 35 throws for 235 yards with an interception, and he ran four times for 13 yards.

Tannehill and wideout Mike Wallace failed to hook up on two potential touchdowns. One was a wildly inaccurate throw, the other a bad drop. Tannehill got picked off in the third quarter when running back Lamar Miller couldn't handle a low throw and the ball ricocheted to cornerback Darrin Walls.

Tannehill also threw a pass directly at linebacker Calvin Pace, but Pace couldn't catch it. Tannehill will try to get back on track Week 14 against the Ravens.


Ryan Tanehill keeps rolling, even in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill put together arguably the finest performance of his career in Week 12, in a 39-36 loss to the Broncos.

Tannehill found the end zone for the first time all season on the ground, and added three more through the air, en route to a 32-point Fantasy game that stands as his second best of the season. However, he also delivered a crushing late interception as the Broncos worked their way back for the win.

This might have been the most promising performance of Tannehill's career, as he was effective in the red zone and made plays with his arm and his legs. He heads into a solid matchup against the Jets in Week 13 riding high, and could be a solid Fantasy play against a defense that ranks dead last against quarterbacks. 


Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill accounts for four touchdowns in loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had one of his better games of the season in Week 12, accounting for four touchdowns in a 39-36 loss to Denver.

Tannehill completed 26 of his 36 pass attempts for 228 yards and threw for three touchdowns. He also added a rushing score which was his first of the season and the first time he scored four touchdowns in a game this season. He added 15 rushing yards on four attempts.

Tannehill connected with rookie wide receiver Jarvis Landry on two of his passing touchdowns, with Mike Wallace also catching a touchdown from Tannehill. The Dolphins next Monday against the Jets.

Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill on new offense: I think I turned a corner


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill told the NFL Network following a 22-9 victory over Buffalo in Week 11 that he's finally starting to feel comfortable in Miami's new offense.

"I definitely think I have been playing better. It took me a little while to get comfortable in the offense. The guys around me have really stepped up and played well," Tannehill said, per the Miami Herald. "We were West Coast last year, so a completely different system. All kinds of zone reads. Spreading things out. A lot of new concepts. But it's been a lot of fun. I feel great [in this system]. When I went to London, I took a step back and said make plays, have fun and stop thinking so much. I think I turned a corner."

Tannehill compiled 240 yards through the air while completing 26 of 34 passes. He added two touchdowns, no interceptions and 17 rushing yards in the win. He had eight touchdowns and five interceptions through his first six games. Over his last five, he has nine touchdowns and two interceptions.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw for two scores Thursday against the Bills.

Tannehill completed 26 of 34 passes for 240 yards. He also finished with 17 rushing yards. The game was mostly a defensive struggle early, as neither team could muster a touchdown in the first half. Tannehill finally broke that streak with 2:25 left in the third quarter. Tannehill hit Brandon Gibson on a 7 yard pass, giving the team a one point lead. Tannehill wouldn't stop there, throwing an 8 yard score to Jarvis Landry in the fourth quarter.

Tannehill will take on the Broncos Week 12.
