Ryan Tannehill has agreed to a restructured contract.
$16.7 million of Tannehill's $17.475 million base salary has been converted to a "signing bonus" that will be pro-rated over the final three years of his contract. It's a classic cap maneuver, one that teams come to regret if they do it too many times. Mar 14 - 4:40 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill (knee) "is going to be our starting quarterback."

"And I don't see that changing anytime soon," Gase added. That said, the coach did not dismiss reports the Dolphins are considering a quarterback with the 11th overall pick, instead saying Tannehill will embrace the competition if someone else is brought in. Tannehill has not played since December of 2016 because of ACL injuries.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins "remain committed" to Ryan Tannehill as starter for 2018, but that there is "some willingness" inside the team to "genuinely consider" a quarterback at No. 11 overall.

This isn't the first time Miami's paper of record has passed along word that the Dolphins could go quarterback in the first round. The team has been loosely connected to Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield. Tannehill has been a fine, competent option under center but seems to have reached his ceiling. He's also missed 19 straight games with ACL issues and turns 30 in July. We wouldn't dismiss the Dolphins going quarterback out of hand.

The Dolphins could restructure Ryan Tannehill’s contract.

Tannehill has a $19.8 million cap hit, with $5.5 million of his salary guaranteed on the fifth day of the new league year. The Dolphins can save $17.5 million from cutting him and may ask Tannehill for a pay cut coming off knee surgery. Reshad Jones, Kenny Stills, Kiko Alonso and Andre Branch are also candidates to restructure.
Feb 24 - 4:12 PM

The Miami Herald reports the "expectation" is that Ryan Tannehill (knee) will be ready for the start of the Dolphins' offseason program in April.

Tannehill is roughly five months removed from "partially" tearing his left ACL and undergoing surgery. It's hard to believe he will be full-go for OTAs — the Dolphins have no reason to be that aggressive — but it's looking like he could be 100 percent for training camp. With Tannehill sidelined, the Dolphins' offense took a major step back in 2017.
Jan 9 - 6:59 PM

Coach Adam Gase said he envisions Ryan Tannehill being "our starting quarterback" in 2018.

Tannehill missed all of 2017 after needing a second knee surgery on his ACL, but the Dolphins aren't openly concerned. Jay Cutler will be a free agent and won't be back in Miami. Tannehill is likely going to miss spring workouts but should be ready to roll by training camp. The Dolphins will have to figure out his weaponry with Jarvis Landry set to be a free agent and Julius Thomas certain to be cut. The Dolphins also need to start taking the guard positions seriously.
Jan 3 - 1:19 PM

Ryan Tannehill's ACL operation will take place on Thursday.

Tannehill will require 10-12 months of rehab. Now 29 and coming off two ACL injuries in eight months, Tannehill is due a guaranteed $17.47 million in 2018.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill (knee, I.R.) will "absolutely" be ready for the start of next season.

Tannehill made the decision to undergo season-ending ACL surgery on Friday. "He's got a good plan mapped out," said Gase. Tannehill's knee injury wasn't as severe as the one suffered by Teddy Bridgewater last summer, and it's reasonable to expect him back at full strength for the start of 2018. With Jay Cutler under center, Miami will feature a run-heavy scheme with Jay Ajayi as the focal point.

Dolphins placed QB Ryan Tannehill on injured reserve on injured reserve with a torn ACL, ending his season.

After opting not to undergo surgery last offseason with a partially torn ACL, Tannehill is choosing the opposite this time around. He will likely be ready to go for training camp next season. Jay Cutler will take over as the starting quarterback. Cutler has supported numerous top-24 fantasy receivers in his career, so fantasy players should not bump Dolphins skill players too far down their boards.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Ryan Tannehill (ACL) will undergo knee surgery and be placed on injured reserve.

Tannehill avoided surgery after partially tearing his ACL late last season, but it is not surprising he is opting to get the knee repaired this time after re-tearing the same ACL last week. Going under the knife this early means he should be a full-go for camp next season. With Tannehill done for the year, Miami will turn to Jay Cutler as their starter.

The Miami Herald reports Ryan Tannehill's left ACL is again partially torn.

A source told the Herald that a pre-training camp exam on both of Tannehill's knees showed his left knee was "stronger and in better shape" than his right knee, despite last year's partial ACL tear. Unfortunately, the joint simply wasn't stable enough, and Tannehill re-tore the ACL (partially) in Thursday's practice. The Dolphins have not yet determined whether Tannehill will undergo ACL surgery, but we would be surprised if he didn't.

Coach Adam Gase offered no update on the status of Ryan Tannehill (knee) on Friday morning.

While leaving the practice field, Gase said the team has yet to decide its course of action for Tannehill. Miami plans to be thorough with this one, seeking more than just one or two opinions. Both surgery and rest/rehab remain options. As for now, Gase said Matt Moore is the quarterback while Tannehill is out.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Dolphins now "fear" Ryan Tannehill (knee) will require season-ending surgery, but have yet to make a final decision.

The Dolphins have gone from "not ruling out" surgery to "fearing" it in three hours. Tannehill didn't fully tear any ligaments, but appears to have aggravated his partially torn ACL and MCL from last December. Rather than again opting for rest and rehab — which he could do for 6-8 weeks — it appears Tannehill will need to go under the knife. If that's the case, Matt Moore will step in as starter, though Jay Cutler could be an option. Free agent Colin Kaepernick could also be brought in as a backup. We should get final word on Tannehill's status Friday.

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports the Dolphins haven't ruled out season-ending surgery for Ryan Tannehill (knee).

Tannehill avoided "full tears" on Thursday's practice fall, but team officials haven't ruled out "a procedure that would fully repair" the ACL and MCL Tannehill partially tore last December. The team is still awaiting further test results. It's possible Tannehill and the Dolphins won't fully trust his troublesome left knee until it has been surgically repaired.

The Washington Post confirms there was no "significant damage" found in Ryan Tannehill's MRI, but reports there is still "further evaluation needed."

Per reporter Mark Maske, the "situation is still uncertain." The Miami Herald called Tannehill's MRI "inconclusive." Structural damage wasn't detected on first blush, but Tannehill has at least a hyperextension. It's possible something more nefarious is still discovered with further testing.
