This evening the Miami Dolphins and Ryan Tannehill came to terms on a rookie contract that will pay the Quarterback out of Texas A&M $12,668,502 and receive a signing bonus of $7,653,456.
The exact terms of the deal are not yet known, but believed to be a 4 year contract with a 5th year option. It is possible that offset language is in the deal, but the Dolphins are believed to have made some concessions.
Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported the deal through an NFL source and Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post contributed the possible contract details.
We should have more reaction on Tannehill’s signing and what this means for Miami. What it means for Tannehill, is he gets to compete for a spot on the depth chart and avoids a lengthy holdout.
