The Dolphins are fully expected to pick up the $15 million fifth-year option on Ryan Tannehill for 2016.
That's only if the sides can't hammer out an extension before Tannehill is forced to play out 2015 at just $2 million. It's confirmation Dolphins brass remains high on its 26-year-old franchise quarterback, who ranked fifth in completions (392), fifth in completion percentage (66.4), 11th in yards (4,045), T-12th in touchdowns (27) and 14th in passer rating (92.8) this past season. The athletic Tannehill added 311 rushing yards and one score on the ground, boosting his fantasy value. If he can add deep-ball accuracy to his resume, he'll take the next step. Jan 22 - 8:42 AM

Ryan Tannehill completed 23-of-39 passes for 259 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to the Jets.

Tannehill took a major leap in his first season under OC Bill Lazor, who designed a high-percentage offense and emphasized his quarterback getting rid of the football quickly. Tannehill may always be limited from a deep-ball standpoint, but he progressed over the course of the year and is a plus athlete, a trait Lazor consistently put to use on read-option plays and designed QB runs. Tannehill finished the season with a 27:12 TD-to-INT ratio and a completion rate of nearly 67.0. His 392 completions set a Dolphins single-season record. 26 years old, Tannehill is on the fringe of "franchise quarterback" status. He is owed just $2 million in 2015, a contract year for Tannehill. The Dolphins will likely begin extension talks soon.

Ryan Tannehill completed 35-of-47 passes for 396 yards, four touchdowns, and an interception in the Dolphins' Week 16 win over the Vikings.

Tannehill was lucky to have an early would-be pick dropped by Vikings FS Harrison Smith. Smith did pick Tannehill early in the second quarter. Tannehill bounced back to toss a 14-yard touchdown pass to Dion Sims later in the frame. The Dolphins emphasized a quick-hitting passing attack featuring tight ends Charles Clay and Sims, and running back Lamar Miller on screens. Tannehill's second TD was good to Mike Wallace from 16 yards out, and he threw Nos. 3 and 4 to Wallace (7 yards) and RB Damien Williams (3 yards), respectively. It was an excellent rebound from Tannehill after an ugly three-game stretch following Miami's loss to Denver. The Dolphins will close out their season against the Jets in Week 17.

Ryan Tannehill completed 29-of-47 passes for 346 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Miami's 41-13, Week 15 loss to the Patriots.

Tannehill added three rushes for 21 yards. You could argue Tannehill deserved a better fate, as Brian Hartline lost an early deep bomb in the sun, and reserve RB Damien Williams flat-out dropped a 35-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Tannehill's first pick was an absolute lollipop, however, while his second was an aimless bullet that ricocheted off a helmet. Tannehill couldn't make plays in the game's decisive third quarter, where New England turned a 14-13 halftime lead into a 38-13 laugher. Tannehill won't be on the QB1 radar for the fantasy finals against the Vikings.

Ryan Tannehill completed 23-of-33 passes for 227 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' 28-13, Week 14 loss to the Ravens, adding two rushes for six yards.

It was a disappointing day for Tannehill in a plus matchup. The Ravens boast one of the league's most-vulnerable secondaries, but Tannehill refused to challenge it with deep balls. He also missed a wide-open Mike Wallace in the end zone in the second half. Tannehill played worse than the numbers suggest, delivering zero big plays while failing to make things happen with his feet. He won't be on the QB1 radar for next week's trip to New England.

Ryan Tannehill completed 25-of-35 passes for 235 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception in the Dolphins' 16-13, Week 13 win over the Jets on Monday night.

The tape of this game should be burned. Neither defense did anything special, while the offenses could barely function. Tannehill, a popular streaming option in Week 13, predictably busted. He should have had a couple of touchdown passes, but Mike Wallace didn't put in the effort on a would-be 26-yard score. Tannehill later missed a receiver in the end zone. His interception was hilariously awful and a stroke of bad luck. Tannehill threw a swing pass at Lamar Miller's feet. Miller reached down to catch it, but popped it up in the air for an easy pick. Tannehill will be a back-end QB1 against the Ravens in Week 14. The 7-5 Dolphins currently hold the No. 6 seed in the AFC.

Ryan Tannehill (non-throwing shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 13.

Playing the best football of his career — and coming off his first four-touchdown effort — Tannehill will be a legitimate QB1 against the Jets' ridiculously bad pass defense.

Ryan Tannehill completed 26-of-36 passes for 228 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Miami's 39-36, Week 12 loss to the Broncos, adding four rushes for 15 yards and an additional score.

Today was the first time in Tannehill's 43-game career that he accounted for four total touchdowns. Tannehill was on point from the beginning, being decisive in the pocket, and accurate on the run. He had a hard time keeping up with Peyton Manning, however, as injuries mounted for the Dolphins' defense. Tannehill's pick was a tipped pass thrown to a tightly-covered Jarvis Landry. A second INT was overturned by defensive holding. It wasn't a perfect game, but Tannehill did all that could reasonably be expected in a high-scoring road jaunt. Much more consistent than he was the first two years of his career, Tannehill will be in the QB1 conversation against the Jets' dreadful secondary next Monday.

Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Tannehill played through his shoulder injury last week and didn't have any setbacks. He should be upgraded to full Thursday. Tannehill will be a QB2 against Denver in Week 12.

Ryan Tannehill completed 26-of-34 passes for 240 yards and two touchdowns in Miami's 22-9, Week 11 win over the Bills.

He added four rushes for 17 yards, and also lost a fumble. Tannehill took a few bad sacks, holding onto the ball for too long, but was otherwise efficient as the Dolphins slowly squeezed the life out of the Bills. As usual, Tannehill displayed disastrous accuracy the few times OC Bill Lazor tried to go deep, but the missed throws didn't result in any turnovers or other cataclysms. Tannehill now has 10 days to rest up for the Dolphins' trip to Denver. The point outlook in that one will have Tannehill on the streaming radar, though the Broncos' defense is formidable.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Dolphins are "cautiously optimistic" Ryan Tannehill is their franchise quarterback.

However, Rapsheet reports "Dolphins officials" are not yet ready to "declare Tannehill is the quarterback of the future." Tannehill had the best stretch of his career in Weeks 4-9, but it came against a soft schedule. He struggled against the Lions' elite defense in Week 10. It will almost feel like Tannehill is back to square one if he has a grim showing against the Bills' stout defense on Thursday Night Football.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports there's "no doubt" Ryan Tannehill (shoulder, ankle) starts Thursday night's Week 11 game against the Bills.

Tannehill took a few shots last week against the Lions and actually hurt his throwing shoulder while attempting to make a tackle following an interception. He's been limited in practice all week, but is fully expected to be fine for the important AFC East tilt. Tannehill will be a mid-to-low QB2 option.

Ryan Tannehill (ankle, shoulder) remained limited in Tuesday's practice.

Tannehill is in no danger of missing Thursday's game against the Bills. The Dolphins are just limiting his live reps on a short week. On only three days' rest against a tough opponent, Tannehill will be a lower-end QB2 for Week 11.

Ryan Tannehill (ankle, shoulder) was limited in Monday's practice.

Tannehill got roughed up by the Lions on Sunday when he took three sacks. He also left his starting LT Branden Albert on Sunday to a season-ending knee injury. Tannehill is fully expected to play Thursday night against the Bills.

Ryan Tannehill completed 27-of-38 passes for 201 yards, one touchdown and an interception in Miami's 20-16, Week 10 loss to the Lions.

Tannehill wasn't a factor on the ground, gaining zero yards on two carries. Tannehill's hot streak was stopped in its tracks against the Lions' elite defense, though he could have had a much-better day had he simply hit Mike Wallace on a second-quarter deep bomb. Instead — as usual — Tannehill missed what would have been an easy 60-yard touchdown. Tannehill's pick was a horrific read where he never saw James Ihedigbo. Tannehill has an extremely tough Week 11 matchup in the Bills on a short week, especially since the Dolphins will be adjusting to life without LT Branden Albert (knee).
