They'll pick up $1.5 in cap room when Gabbert is inevitably released. Still $500k on the books for him next year though. 

 

$21 million for Mariota plus $7 million for Tannehill plus $500k for a cut Gabbert...That's a lot of cash devoted to the QB position next year, but it had to be done. 

 

I honestly thought they'd stand pat with Gabbert. Don't like giving up that 4th in 2020, but I love Tannehill as the backup/Mariota insurance.

 

I wonder if they thought about trading for Rosen at all? Much cheaper contract and obviously more upside than Tannehill. 

Rosen would have cost a 1st round pick.

I doubt it will be an open competition, but bet your ass the better QB plays. 

 

Having said that, if Marcus really is that injury prone, start his ass and don’t hold back on the RPO or the QB run and know that Tannehill is there.

The 6th round this year is where Trevon Wesco is slotted.  The guy is a wolf and great blocking TE.  

 

 

I hope we draft him. 

 

I know Dews will be pounding the table for him and knows him well.

Rosen likely would've cost more capital though and he's less experienced. You're not sure of what you have in Rosen either, but we know what Tannehill is... personally, I'd prefer Tannehill

Wow I had no idea Tannehill had such a nice, healthy stretch to start his career. 4 straight years he started all 16 games. He has the reputation of being hurt, but that's definitely more of a recent trend. Hopefully he can get fully healthy this offseason.
