Ryan Tannehill (knee) still has confidence in his mobility.
"I feel like I am moving well, able to escape, able to get upfield when the window is there," Tannehill said of his offseason practices. "It’s still going to be a weapon for me. When defenses present an open spot, we have to take advantage of it with my legs." Limited to 13 games by his knee over the past two years, Tannehill turns 30 this July. His last full season, 2015, he rushed the ball just 32 times. That should probably be the over/under for his 2018 attempts. Jun 5 - 3:28 PM

Ryan Tannehill (knee) said he has been fully cleared.

"I’m clear to play football, so whatever that entails I can do it," he said. "Honestly, at this point, it’s just, 'Let it rip.'" Tannehill has been practicing without a brace during OTAs, but he plans to wear one during the regular season.

Ryan Tannehill (knee) is practicing without a brace in OTAs.

Doing "everything" in OTAs, Tannehill is either fully recovered or almost there. Practicing without a brace is a change from last offseason, where Tannehill wore one in every practice in an effort to get used to it for the regular season. The brace did not stop Tannehill from re-injuring his ACL. Now surgically-repaired, Tannehill's knee should be stronger than it was last summer.
May 22 - 5:45 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Ryan Tannehill (knee) will "do everything" during OTAs.

The Miami Herald had a similar report last week. Near full health if not already there, Tannehill should have a full offseason to get ready for his first game action since December of 2016.
May 22 - 8:32 AM

The Miami Herald reports Ryan Tannehill (knee) is expected to have "little or no limitations" in OTAs.

That's per "Dolphins sources." Coach Adam Gase has previously said that Tannehill would be ready. The Dolphins flirted with taking a quarterback in the early rounds of April's draft but ultimately signed up for another year of the Tannehill show. Going on 30, Tannehill hasn't attempted a regular season pass since Dec. 11, 2016.
May 15 - 4:17 PM

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Dolphins have assured Ryan Tannehill (knee) he will start in 2018 even if they draft a quarterback in the first round.

Pelissero reports the Dolphins would consider moving up if a quarterback begins to slip, but the "smart money says they stand pat at 11 [and] take the best available defensive player." Miami was strongly linked with Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield early in the draft process, but it looks like he will come off the board well before their pick, perhaps even No. 1 overall. Tannehill was having his best season as a pro before going down with a knee injury late in 2016, and that same knee caused him to miss all of 2017. With uncertainty about Tannehill's health and ability to be a top-flight quarterback, it makes sense for the Dolphins to grab one of the premier quarterbacks if they can.
Apr 26 - 12:12 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill (ACL) will be ready for OTAs.

After attempting to rehab the injury last offseason, Tannehill was forced to undergo surgery last August. The saga led to a lost season, but the surgery should ensure he is returning at close to full health. Although Gase has committed to Tannehill as his starter for this season, the Dolphins have been linked with a move for Baker Mayfield with the 11th overall pick.
Mar 27 - 8:06 AM

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.
Feb 27 - 5:24 PM

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.
Thu, Aug 17, 2017 01:26:00 PM

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.
