not bad for a starting QB
Kind of an odd description (supplanted), not sure what they are getting at...it was obvious the team performed worse last season with Cutler at the helm.
If you look at the names above him....the 17 million doesn't seem all that bad.
his pay in 2018 is just about perfect- a good deal for him and good deal for Miami if he returns fully.
If he has the season a lot are expecting, I see a 5-year $110 million contract post-season.
Gotta love a bargain.
2018 is fine. It's that 2019 cap figure that is going to make a lot of people lose their minds. That'll be fun.
Wow, compared to some of the others on that list, he is quite a bargain!!
We have no idea what we'r getting. How in the hell is that a bargain?
low amount for a starting QB
Sometimes questions can only be answered on the field. I suspect that after the season there will be a lot more clarity about our entire team and it's direction.
Generally, in this league, your either worth a lot more or a lot less than what your actually making. Right now, Ryan Tannehill is perfectly compensated.
Only to those who haven't already made up their minds one way or the other. At this point the opinions have become linked with the individuals espousing them and it will be difficult to ever . I suspect RT will have a good enough season that we can finally all get behind him but there will always be those that will find enough "evidence" to cling to their own beliefs. Unless we go winless or win the Super Bowl I doubt that this year alone will be enough to change minds for some. For the record I am a Tannehill supporter but I admit I have no way of knowing the future so I'll keep an open mind and hope for the best.
You'll get no argument from me. My point is that unless the Dolphins go deep into the playoffs this year, there will be an outcry from the "no more excuses for Tannehill" crowd.
17 mil isn’t awful for a vet who still may have some upside
That's a quality post.
Some of you act as if no other QB has ever come back from an injury.
So, is there anyone here that thinks we should have paid Landry? I know he would have paid him the franchise money this year, but OMG, the Browns are paying him 21 mil this year!
I'm not concerned about other Qbs. I was uncertain about Ryan before he got hurt although I dp recognize the solid performance at the end of his last season. I can't say he's going to come back as that guy or the guy before that 8 game stretch so it's an unknown to me
Yeah, I found that word a little out of place about the circumstances. “Supplanting” usually implies that the guy beat you out for your job. Maybe he meant “substituting”. Makes me think this was written by a sophomore in high school carrying a strong c-minus in vocabulary.
Right on the money here brother.
Funny how some are trying to convince themselves that this is a good deal. Meanwhile Brady, Russell Wilson, and Ben Roethlisberger are making less than Tannehill, those teams are the real winners and ita not even close. But let's continue to compare our franchise with the jags and blake bortles contracts and tell ourselves it's ok.
Yeah, well, those teams can get discounts on good QBs because they have a track record as good organizations and their QBs want to compete for the super bowl.
Our team has a track record as a clown show that's on fire, as the clown fire truck sprays vegetable oil on the flames to put them out. If a QB wants to compete for a super bowl, why on earth would they take a discount to be here?
not true. all of them are making many more millions than Tannehill.
The article references "cash payout". That's the money Tannehill earns this year and is a totally different thing to his cap number, which is 8.7 million in 2018. Compare that to Brady's 22 million, Roethlisberger's 23.2 million and Wilson's 23.8 million cap numbers for 2018.
Also, just taking one year of the contract in isolation to evaluate if it's a good deal or not is questionable, much less cash payout in a single year. Yearly average salary and guaranteed money for the life of the contract is the way to measure contracts against one another. These are Tannehill's numbers compared to the QBs you mentioned (all numbers at the time of signing, no restructrings included because that makes those contracts not comparable). All those QBs signed their contracts in 2015 except for Brady who signed in 2016. So this makes them pretty comparable if you ask me.
Not sure how anyone can conclude that Tannehill's deal is worse than any of these other QBs.
you mean "better" i think
Cap # is all that matters, but nice try none the less lol.
