Ryan Tannehill still not in contract talks with Miami Dolphins

Published Add your comment

The Miami Dolphins are still yet to open contract negotiations with quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

According to reports from ProFootballTalk, while Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck and other star young quarterbacks are in discussions with the Seattle Seahawks and Indianapolis Colts respectively, Tannehill is still waiting to hear from the Dolphins.

But it's not all doom and gloom for Tannehill though, with rumours circulating that the Dolphins could offer him over $100million. Not bad for a player who was one bad game away from being benched last season.

The deal reportedly would be for seven years with a maximum value of $105 million, which includes incentives. Doing simple math, this type of contract gives Tannehill an average of $15 million per year. The contract would be similar to Andy Dalton's, with get out clauses after a couple of seasons as a safety blanket.

But Tannehill is 23-25 as a starter for Miami, has never delivered them to the playoffs, and doesn't even put up great stats. He's just meh, but apparently that earns you $100million in the NFL now.
