(DAVIE, FLORIDA) — The Miami Dolphins agreed to terms with quarterback Ryan Tannehill, the former Texas A&M quarterback drafted eighth overall in April’s NFL Draft
Tannehill was forced to hold out at the start of training camp because his team was not yet completed. Tannehill did not want to miss any more time as he wanted to join his teammates and get to work.
Tannehill had already missed the first two days of camp and is expected to compete for the starting job along with veterans Matt Moore and David Garrard.
Terms of the contract were not announced. Tannehill started 19 games at Texas A&M and his head coach was Mike Sherman, who is now the offensive coordinator for the Dolphins.
Tannehill is the first quarterback picked in the first round by the Dolphins since drafting Hall of Fame Dan Marino back in 1983.
