Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill contract breakdown

Thu, 21 May 2015 09:09:51 -0700

Updating previous reports, Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill will earn $12.2 million in 2015, but only $745,000 of it will be in base salary. His 2016 base salary of $9.34 million is fully guaranteed. In 2017, the Dolphins will have five days into the league year to decide whether to fully guarantee his $17.47 million base salary, which essentially gives the Dolphins an opt-out if Tannehill struggles to meet expectations over the next two seasons. His contract contains no guaranteed money in 2019 and 2020, other than the prorated signing bonus in Year 5, so Miami could save $17 million in 2019 and $18 million in 2020 by releasing him.

Fantasy Tip: The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero said Dolphins executives looked at him like he had a horn growing out of his forehead when he asked what happens if Tannehill flops, which illustrates how much confidence the organization has in their young passer. Tannehill's 2015 season could get off to a rocky start with all of the offensive turnover possibly needing more time build chemistry, but there's no denying his new receiving corps is more explosive than the 2014 cast. He is a fringe QB1.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill signs extension

Mon, 18 May 2015 13:13:01 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill signed an extension through the 2020 season Monday, May 18. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill isn't exactly a top-tier fantasy quarterback, but this is a hefty extension for the young quarterback coming off a career year. With guys like Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings and Jordan Cameron at his disposal, he's safely in the top-15 fantasy quarterback conversation.

Dolphins | Future bright for Ryan Tannehill?

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 19:48:29 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is coming off his best season as a pro, and the team has added WR Kenny Stills, WR Greg Jennings, WR DeVante Parker and TE Jordan Cameron in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill turned out to be a low-end QB1 last year, and with added firepower at his disposal and another year of experience under his belt, he should at least be able to duplicate his results in 2015. He is a great quarterback to target if you decide to pass on the high-end QB1 options in fantasy drafts.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill's option picked up

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 18:09:41 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill had his fifth-year option picked up Wednesday, April 29, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport. The option is worth $16 million for 2016 and is fully guaranteed only in the event of an injury. The Dolphins plan to work out a long-term deal prior to the season opener.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill will enter the season as a top-15 quarterback and will be a late-round option in fantasy drafts. That said, if Tannehill is able to take the next step in his development, it's not out of the question for him to perform as a top-10 player at his position.

Dolphins | Miami waiting on Ryan Tannehill option

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:17:29 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's fifth-year option has yet to be picked up. The deadline for the option to be picked up is Sunday, May 3. "Look, Ryan is here, we're excited he is here, we haven't made any decisions yet," vice president Mike Tannenbaum said. "We know when the deadline is and we'll make those decisions when we get there. The fifth-year option for 2016 is worth about $15 million.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins could still give Tannehill a long-term extension if they don't want to pick up his option. Tannehill had the best season of his career in 2014. A receiving corps of Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and Greg Jennings, not to mention Jordan Cameron and Charles Clay at tight end, should give Tannehill plenty of opportunities to succeed. He has QB1 potential but should still be considered a QB2 at this point.

Dolphins | MIA unsure on Ryan Tannehill extension

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:15:26 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is a player the team has not decided on if they will sign to a contract extension at this point, according to executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill likely will be a candidate for a contract extension at some point, but it may not happen until later in the offseason. Tannehill posted career highs in passing yards with 4,045 yards and in touchdowns with 27 in 2014. Tannehill probably will not be an every-week starter in 2015 but should be a solid option against certain matchup.

Dolphins | Miami wants to lock up Ryan Tannehill

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 19:41:19 -0700

The Miami Dolphins are committed to getting a contract extension done with QB Ryan Tannehill before the start of the regular season. However, there have been no formal discussions between Tannehill's representatives and the Dolphins since the NFL Scouting Combine. If a new deal cannot be reached, the team can still exercise his fifth-year option to keep him under control through the 2016 season. He would be paid roughly $16 million for 2016 under that scenario.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill posted a team record for completions in 2014, and he will now have Mike Pouncey protect him for a while after the center signed an extension. The Dolphins believe Tannehill can be a franchise quarterback, but fantasy owners should still consider him in the middle-third of all NFL starters at his position.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill may have option picked up

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 15:55:59 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's fifth-year option will be picked up if the team is not able to sign him to a contract extension over the next six weeks, according to sources. Tannehill would make $16 million in 2016 if his option is picked up. It is believed the Dolphins have talked about signing Tannehill to a six-year deal worth more than $100 million.

Fantasy Tip: Tannehill play very well this past season and will look to build on his success next season. He will have some different weapons to work with next season, and it is not known if that will affect his performance much. Tannehill probably will be a starting option on FantasyScore against certain teams next season.
