    Yeah the idea would be to recoup the draft picks spent on Mayfield by trading Tannehill. I still will be stunned if Miami pulls this off.

    I'll chop off my dick if this happens. That's how confident I am that this would never happen. They may trade up for Baker but no way they trade Ryan this year.

    Ryan is here for at least a year with the restructure he just did. We would not cut him and take on a -$12.6M cap hit. These people floor me sometimes.

    While the New Times is generally best reserved for lining bird cages from what I've seen, this isn't an awful take. If the Fins DO pull a trigger on a move like this (and I don't think they do), it would be a nice problem to have if Tannehill continues the path he was on before he got injured.

    Yeah. I think the article meant he'd be gone in 2019.

    So much wasted time writing about the Dolphins selecting a qb in the first. It ain't happening.

    Actually, this is the last thing I want to see happen if Ryan continues on the path he was on prior to injury.

    Let's surround him with as much talent as possible, instead of squandering valuable draft assets on his potential replacement.

    Agreed. Then instead of bitching about FA and getting Mayfield, everybody can bitch about how badly we ****ed the draft up.

    I swear, guys can’t wait to hate the team that they love.

    This time of the year would be easier to bear if I had even the slightest hope that we wont **** up the draft.

    They have already loaded up the next gms salary cap issues, I wonder how many of his picks they will trade away over the next few weeks?

    One thing is for sure. This draft will be extremely suspenseful.

    Gase loves Tannehill (full stop PERIOD).

    He came to Miami In part bc he LOVES Tannehill.

    Gase thinks Tannehill is good enough for Gase to hang his star on him.

    Tannehill has poor pocket presence so Gase’ love for him will not materialize a Super Bowl win.

    We will draft a q.b later in the draft.

    Maybe the biggest "No Duh!" article I've read in a long time.

    Still ain't happening.

    Rumor I heard, so take with a grain of salt: Multiple teams (2 were very interested) called about Tannehill and were told that he wasn't available. As in, Miami just wasn't interested in trading him, even though there was a good market. At the time, I took this to mean that his rehab was going very well and not much else.

    However, in a hypothetical scenario in which Miami trades up to draft a quarterback, I have to think that would change immediately. You don't give up a draft ransom for a quarterback if you don't intend to hitch yourself to him.

    As always, I have no idea what the team will do during the draft and I am very leery of smokescreens. But the premise of the article, "If Miami were to trade a draft ransom to draft a quarterback, Ryan Tannehill would likely be traded" seems very reasonable. Just like I think if Miami were to draft a quarterback in rounds 2-5, it would likely be as a backup/insurance policy.

    As for what I personally HOPE will happen? Well, drafting a quarterback at 11 if the right guy is there is FINE, and I'd support that move. But I really don't want to see the team getting into the insane QB trade-up bidding war that's going on right now, especially not when there's prime defensive talent to be plucked off the board as the QBs rise to the top.

    Right now....
    4 QBs got top 10
    Chubb
    Barkley
    Nelson

    That is 7 picks...

    Should leave us with one of...Fitz, James, Smith, Edmunds, or Vander Esch...

    In the end, we should end up with defensive help, which we need...badly.

    And that's not even counting a surprise like Ward to the Bucs or Vea to the Raiders. I'm definitely NOT trading up in this draft, there will be a stud at 11

    Trading up to 11 would cost a ton of picks which we need to build up the team. If Mayfield is there at 11 then fine, take him but stop trading away picks that you need to build thru the draft

    And, the Dolphins without fail, make it easy year after year to do so.

    Fast forward 20 days, 12 hours and all we will be talking about is which TE we might land in the 2nd round to go with the (insert best defensive player available) we took in the 1st round.

    I couldn't imagine Adam Gase taking a hard look at Darnold, Rosen, Allen, Mayfield and Jackson and somehow coming out of that enamored with Baker with the most.

    If he's secretly drooling over a QB, it's the one from UCLA.

    I am not in favor of drafting Lamar Jackson, but mostly because I believe in the QB returning to the helm in Miami. I could see Gase falling in love with Jackson's potential though.

    If we do actually end up with Baker Mayfield and he's a better option for the Miami Dolphins than RT, he will get 100% of my support. I just don't think it's something I need to worry about.

    I don't think Mayfield will end up being a better QB than Tannehill. I think all the QB talk is a smoke screen to entice QB needy teams to trade up and drive other players out of the top 10 right into Miami's lap at 11.

    I hope QBs go 1-10......

    If that's true, Denver and Arizona were those teams.

    No question in my mind John Elway would love to have Tannehill.

    LOLO@ "The New Times" the freebie that used to have 3 back pages full of phony pain center oxy contin distribution ads before the state finally clamped down on what was well-known up and down the east coast as the primary questionable source for Oxy. Still, I do appreciate the paper's yearly selections for best of pizza, happy hours and sushi in SoFL Tri-Counties.

    If Gase and Co are sold Mayfield or hell, any of the other prospects, then I'm all for it. Even if that means losing RT. They certainly know more than I ever will, so just have to trust they're making the right call.

    Some of the guys clammorring for Mayfield better be aware of potentially pushing Ryan Tannehill right to the New England Patriots in 2019.

    It's a sickening thought but a potential outcome of telling RT he's not our guy. Belichek will call him instantly.

    Finally...a NE quarterback we'd have no problem defending against.

    I'll settle for 8 QB's, Chubb and Barkely.

    Quenten Nelson is still my pipe dream.

    Are you saying Miami's defense is better than New England's?

    Tannehill's had some good games against New England.

    Ummm...no...I'm saying Tannehill vs Brady as a Patriots QB doesn't exactly make me worry.

    Until now I used to favor Tannehill over Mayfield.

    Thankfully I don't have to worry about it either because Ryan Tannehill is entrenched as the Miami Dolphins QB, he deserves to be on a better team a lot more than we deserve to have a better QB.

    Right... because we have done so well vs other QB's that the negative Nancy experts here thought were terrible too. Carry on.

    I hope to God we never have to find this out. because I have a feeling that would haunt this team for another 5-6 years.

    Exactly. If a QB happens to fall to 11 and they take him, fine. But is they trade up to get a QB, then Tannenbaum has officially lost his mind!

    or maybe they don't trust the health of Tannehill? hes been injured back 2 back seasons I think OTAs will say a lot of Tannehill's health thats why Gase is saying he isn't going to limit him in his activities by much.
