Tannehill is getting a multi year contract a big one.

 

Stop pounding your chest for a minute and answer this question. Are you really comfortable signing Tannehill off one good season?

What type of contract would you sign Ryan Tannehill ? Lay out the numbers.

 

I'm not going to guess specifics but you know RT's agent is going to be pointing directly at guys like Wentz, Jimmy G and Goff contracts. 

 

It's going to be somewhere between Cousins/Jimmy G and Goff/Wentz. 

 

100+ mill total, 50+ mill guaranteed and around 30 mill annually

First fo all, no concerning pounding my chest. It has to be said. Some of the stuff I've read the last few days is borderline retarded. 

 

And secondly of course I'm comfortable signing Ryan Tannehill. He wasn't some fluke this year. He played consistently well all year. He was a solid QB with Miami who got into a good situation with a talented offense. 

 

He's not going to turn into a bum. 

 

We got super lucky to get him, now keep him. 

 

Tagging him makes you lose another player and his salary goes up again next year

0% chance I’m paying RT 30 million.  If that’s his asking price he can walk.  There’s a lot of young players coming down the pipe The next 3-4 years I’d keep over paying RT 30 million per year.  I think he’s a humble guy and knows he’s in a good spot, so I can’t see him pushing to break the bank.  But at 30 million, I’m out.

Haha all good. Like I said I would be pounding my chest as well if I was out in front of the Mariota situation. As for Tannehill I guess that makes sense if you think his body of work in Miami is a factor. Personally I think he was better than most remember in Miami however I'm not ready to use that as a factor for signing him long term. As far as I'm concerned he delivered at a high level for one season and it's always risky signing players to big contracts on a single season's worth of work.

unless you want to watch crap football for possibly the next decade plus, you pay the man. 


do we need to go through another VY/Locker/Mariota cycle? Drafting a QB is always a gamble, Id say much more so than expecting RT to maintain his level of play. Those players your hoping to sign later are useless without a legit QB to lead your team

I would rather see him another season before signing a long term high dollar contract, but it won't be an option, and there are plenty of teams that would love to scoop him up.

 

It is impossible to know if he drops off next year. Something to think about though is Henry carried a lot of the load, and he also sat on the bench 6 weeks, so he was rested coming in.  It's really hard to say how long Henry can play the way he is and put up these otherworldly stats, but we all know it won't last forever. And if Henry was to regress or get injured, how far can Tannehill carry this team on his own?

Some of the comments are so ridiculous it is hard to even answer them.  Who else is as good as Mahommes?  Who comes close?  Rodgers?  Dumb comment.  

 

First of all Tannehill didn't play that much less of a game than Mahommes.  He had more pressure on him and his WRs weren't getting as good of separation.

But the dumbest thing is thinking we can get a better QB picking where we pick in the draft.  That is fing insane logic.  

Then saying he is 31, like he is a RB or something is ridiculous.  He easily has 5 more good years left.  He is in his prime.

Thirdly, we can sign him and not blow whatever draft picks we would need to blow to draft a comparable guy.  We just made it within 11 points of the SB.  

Not sure anyone beats the Chiefs at home the way they were playing.  They were like a machine.  Of course our late seaon pick up off waivers geve up a long TD pass which basically kept us from having a legit chance at the end.

 

Makes way more sense to sign Tannehill and support players like Henry and use draft picks to upgrade the team even more on defense.

Our best WR was a rookie.  Brown will get even better.   Humphries was decent today but not what he could have been if not coming off an injury.

Davis needs to be replaced with a guy with more big play ability and speed.  He is too easy to guard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Right. First question: does anyone want to rebuild after last season? No? Then sign Tannehill. He is the answer for at least a few seasons. 

 

We don't have a ton of draft capital, so we should use that wisely. This is the year to pay Tanney and not immediately undercut that with a high draft pick. Sign a reasonable backup for next season and move on. We need to draft a pass rusher. We need to draft a RB compliment to Henry. We will need Oline and DB help. Any 3 of those 4 in the first round of the draft  would be gravy to me. 

 

2021 draft? That's when we'll have a better eye towards getting a developmental QB. 

 

I think if we have this mindset, we can take what falls to us (maybe a really good QB is passed on and we draft one in R3. Fine.). 

 

Bringing up Mahomes is irrelevant. No one in the league is Mahomes. Mahomes is also in the absolute right situation in that offense with speedy receivers. 

 

And yet, we had a chance to beat those guys with Mahomes, and would have been in it even more if we adjusted play calling and put the game more in Tannehill's hands. 

 

We need to roll this whole team back and improve it. Blowing it up now would waste the confidence and culture we built with this run.

We are heading into Andy Dalton/Blake Bortles territory, IMO.  Locking up Ryan Tannehill long term is a huge risk, some are willing to pay an absurd amount of money for 1 year of production.

I have no issue with Tannehill.  I hope to sign him for the next few years.  I’m not fine, however with making him one of the highest paid QB’s in the NFL.  He is what is.  A very, very good game manager.  And that’s fine with the offense we run.  We don’t necessarily need a Mahomes type under center. But he’s not  a QB who can carry the team and I don’t think he should be paid like one.

Tannehill is getting a multi year contract a big one.

Of course he will.  We all understand that he has created value.  That is not the argument.  Kerry Collins got a new contract after the 13-3, 2008 season.  Same scenario.  He led a team that was a run first offense.  He insisted on being named the starter too.  He’d earn that also.  The very next year, Collins started 0-6 and lost the job to Vince Young.

 

We have all seen this before.  It’s nothing new.  Scrubs don’t become superstars.  And we’ve had our share of fixer uppers...Hasselbecks, Collins, Fitzpatricks, Chandlers, Carlson’s, etc.  In my 40 plus years of being a fan, I’ve seen 18 playoff appearances.  14 were led by Pastorini, Moon and McNair.  The fixer upper’s have led us to 2 (Mariota and Young were drafted).  We’ve seen this strategy before.  In fact, we’ve seen this strategy too much by this organization.  It’s not a winning formula.  

 

Tannehill will get paid.  I just hope it’s not from us.

and the overall numbers don’t really matter. I’m not worried about anything until I see the structure. Hopefully Jrob gets the guaranteed money front loaded. It would set up an easy out on his contract if he fails to perform.

The only people who should be pounding their chests are the ones who knew RT would be as good as he was this year given a chance, that would be ZERO people,

I think if you assume that Tannehill’s level of play turns out to be better than his MIA level but below whatever he accomplished this year it’s a pretty safe re-sign.

 

Length of deal doesn’t really bother me 3 years later isn’t long term.
