Miami Dolphins Reportedly Agree to Terms With QB Ryan Tannehill
According to Pro Football Talk:
Dolphins and Ryan Tannehill agree to terms, per league source.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) July 28, 2012
At this time, the terms of the deal are not known, but the bottom line is that Tannehill can start to work with his new teammates, who've already been through two days of training camp.
This is good news for Tannehill and the Dolphins. Rookie quarterbacks don't fare well without consistent coaching and plenty of reps, and if Tannehill has any shot of playing in 2012, he needs to be in camp.
He's already behind the eight ball, and according to ESPN.com's James Walker, Tannehill doesn't have a chance to start in Week 1:
He looked like a rookie in spring practices and was clearly the No. 3 quarterback. Tannehill knows the offense well but wasn't used to the speed of the NFL game. Things were moving fast and Tannehill's reads were shaky.
Will Tannehill Start in 2012?
That isn't surprising. Most rookie quarterbacks aren't close to being prepared for the speed of the NFL game. Tannehill wasn't even considered to be one of the top quarterbacks heading into the 2012 NFL draft until Matt Barkley and Landry Jones both decided to stay in school for another year.
For now, Tannehill will just need to survive his first NFL training camp. The amount of information that gets thrown at the rookies in the summer time is more than most of them can handle, which is why we tend to see players make massive leaps in their second year.
We'll all get to see how well Tannehill performs, as HBO's Hard Knocks are making their home in Miami this summer. It should be interesting, that's for sure.
