Tannehill was a survivor in Miami, earning two contracts that paid him $67.6 million over the past seven years and playing under three head coaches and four offensive coordinators. That has been rumored all offseason. Paying big-time money for a backup quarterback has proven to be a viable approach (see: the Eagles and Nick Foles) and it makes all the sense in the world for the Titans, a team with Marcus Mariota now positioned as its starter.
The move makes sense for the Titans in that way. He has rarely stayed healthy, and the Titans struggled last season with Blaine Gabbert at quarterback when Mariota was out.

To that part, the Dolphins recently hosted quarterback Teddy Bridgewater on a free-agent visit before Bridgewater elected to re-sign with the New Orleans Saints. Miami believed it was going to be a player in the Tyrod Taylor sweepstakes, but then Taylor went and signed a backup quarterback deal with the Chargers. Miami's current depth chart is Jake Rudock and Luke Falk.
His career as a starter was 42-46 and he never appeared in a playoff game.
