Tannehill has signed a new one-year contract for $7 million guaranteed and worth up to $12 million with incentives, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the deal.
Tannehill now reunites with veteran defensive end Cameron Wake, who signed a three-year, $23 million deal with the Titans earlier this week.
Miami will get a 2020 fourth round pick and a seventh round pick in this year's draft in exchange for Tannehill.
The Miami Dolphins have the worst quarterback situation in the National Football League, and it's not particularly close.
Gabbert threw four touchdowns and four interceptions during the season as well.
In his career, Hekker has completed 11 of 19 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown. He missed the 2017 season with a knee injury. He also ranks second all-time on Miami's career passer rating list, behind only Pennington (94.5) and ahead of Dan Marino (86.4). You could argue that he and Tannehill are incredibly similar - both are athletic, accurate quarterbacks and their playing style feels similar. The main remaining question from the trade might be, who plays quarterback for the Dolphins this season?
The Dolphins spent seven years trying to get a full evaluation of Tannehill, and ultimately they decided it would be a counterproductive same-old Dolphins' way of thinking to let him get another shot under a new staff. Brian Flores was hired to replace Adam Gase as head coach after the season ended.
