​The Tennessee Titans have a new backup quarterback, as they've acquired ​Ryan Tannehill from the ​Miami Dolphins.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the Titans are sending a 2020 fourth-round pick and a 2019 seventh-round pick to Miami, and along with Tannehill, Tennessee is receiving a 2019 sixth-round pick from the Dolphins.

​​With the injury history of Titans starter Marcus Mariota, bringing in someone like Tannehill who has experience as a starter and has won some games is a good move by Tennessee. Tannehill might not be able to start an entire season and lead a team to the playoffs, but he instantly becomes one of the more talented backups in the sport and can play a game or two here and there.


The Dolphins have been ​trying to trade him, but he carries a $26.6 million cap hit. Thankfully for Tennessee, they were able to restructure Tannehill's deal to a more modest one-year, $7 million contract.
