However, that potential trade took a major hit on Friday as the Miami Dolphins traded Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans.

The Titans' current quarterback is the oft-injured Marcus Mariota, the former second-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Dolphins are receiving a seventh-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and a 2020 fourth-round pick.

As part of the trade for former #Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill, the #Titans released QB Blaine Gabbert.

Along with Tannehill, the Dolphins will send Tennessee a sixth-round pick in the 2019 draft.

Stay tuned here at Dolphins Wire for updates to this developing story. He completed 64.2-percent of his passes for 1,979 yards, 17 touchdowns and 9 interceptions in 2018.

Tannehill, the eighth pick of the 2012 draft, had some good moments.

The Raptors , showing signs of being exhausted in their third straight road game, struggled throughout the game. Kevin Love , with 16 points and 18 rebounds, recorded his ninth double-double in 14 games this season.

He departs Miami with a career 62.8 completion percentage and an 87 passer rating, and left money on the table.

It was widely rumored that Tannehill, once expected to be the team's savior, would leave. He did not play in 2017 due to injury.

For the Titans, they've been looking for multiple seasons to find a top-end backup as injury insurance for Mariota. He went unsigned in free agency each of the last two offseasons, causing the 31-year-old to file a grievance against the National Football League and its owners for collusion, a case that was settled out of court last month.

Tannehill's skill set should fit well behind Mariota as both players rely on accuracy and movement to succeed.

In order to make the trade work, the 30-year-old Tannehill has restructured his contract, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Well, except one quarterback who's been sitting on the sidelines for the last two years, waiting for his next opportunity in the NFL.
