The Dolphins get a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a 2019 seventh-round pick, and the Titans get Tannehill and a 2019 sixth-round pick according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

One of those teams who is looking to tank next season is the Miami Dolphins.

The Miami Dolphins traded quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Titans.

Tannehill was drafted by the Dolphins in the first round of the 2012 draft.

Tannehill was originally due $18.7 million in salary in 2019 and was set to count as $26.6 million against their salary cap.

He's 42-46 as a starter with a 62.8-percent completion rate, 20,434 passing yards, 123 touchdowns and 75 interceptions. But he didn't have enough of them and then injuries really hit, including an ACL injury that wiped out his 2017 season. You could argue that he and Tannehill are incredibly similar - both are athletic, accurate quarterbacks and their playing style feels similar.

From the Titans' end the move is probably a reaction, in part, to Marcus Mariota's constant healthy issues.

Mariota, 25, hasn't played a full 16-game season in his career.

Somehow, general manager Chris Grier managed to finalize a deal to send Tannehill to reunite in Nashville with fellow former Dolphin Cameron Wake, who signed a 3-year deal with Tennessee earlier this week after a decade in South Florida.

The Dolphins now face a new era without a clear answer at quarterback.

He was the first quarterback taken in the top round since Dan Marino.
