Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill's expectations tempered

Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said the team will not rush QB Ryan Tannehill into a starting role, particularly when QBs Matt Moore and David Garrard are capable starters. "I'm trying not to put too many grandiose expectations on the kid," Ireland said. "I think (Tannehill) is our future. Obviously, I wouldn't have drafted him with the eighth pick in the draft. I feel like he's the kind of guy you want in the locker room, the kind of athlete you want running an offense. But we've got two other quarterbacks here that are very established, very good competitors, so it's not going to be easy for him. But you want him to learn from these other veterans and let it play out."
