For #Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill, instead of a $17.475M base, he gets a $16.7M Signing Bonus and the base went to a minimum. All upfront… which is nice.

He has never been fantastic, but he’s the best the Dolphins have. That’s not to say he’s bad, of course. But his career interception rate of 2.5 percent leaves plenty to be desired. However, in 2016, the six-year signal-caller would complete 67.1 percent of his passes. That currently stands as a career-high.
Meanwhile, the Dolphins are coming off another poor season (6-10). With a healthy Tannehill in 2016, though, the Dolphins would fall in the wild card round.
Players like Jay Ajayi, Jarvis Landry and Ndamukong Suh won’t be coming back. But Tannehill is still the franchise quarterback. And don’t forget: the NFL draft is right around the corner.
