In a report from Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are likely to move on from the 2012 first-round pick rather than pay him $19 million next year and the season after.
Tannehill has had major issues staying on the field in recent years for Miami. After going the first four years of his career without missing a game, Tannehill suffered a partially torn ACL in late 2016. Just six months later the quarterback again partially torn that same ACL in training camp.
This year, Tannehill has only been on the field for 10 of 15 games, and when he's leading the offense, he's just not as effective as the Dolphins need him to be.
With the news, the Fins are now all but officially in the quarterback market. They could choose to target a veteran in free agency such as Joe Flacco, Tyrod Taylor, Teddy Bridgewater or Nick Foles.
Then again, Miami could opt to pick their next franchise signal caller in the draft, with names like Dwayne Haskins, Will Grier, and Drew Lock all projected to be high picks.
