A league source told Florio on Saturday evening that the Dolphins and Tannehill have agreed to terms on a contract. The four-year deal will include a club option for a fifth, as is the case with all first-round contracts. Per Florio's source, the Dolphins made some concessions, but ultimately Tannehill was unwilling to miss a significant amount of practice time. The Tannehill camp did not get offset language fully removed from the deal.
Tannehill will immediately jump into competition for the starting role with the two other quarterbacks on Miami's roster, David Garrad and Matt Moore. The Texas A&M product was selected eight in the 2012 NFL Draft, and is hoped to be the quarterback of the future for a Miami franchise desperately in need of a playmaker under center.
