    Not to be a downer, but I'm pretty sure Tannehill and his agent set all this up so he could come in after our QB failed and then put in a good statistical season so he could land a gaudy contract somewhere. If he puts a good season together, I don't think he's going to go for a one year extension and the like. Robinson tried to get him for two years back when they signed him and he wouldn't go for it. Lets just enjoy it while we can and take note of what our offense can be with semi-competent QB play. I'm not sure it's wise to give Tannehill a big contract (assuming he has a great season), no matter how great a season he has.

    I think he can at least be a good stop-gap for us. Use this next offseason to rebuild the offensive line and see what he looks like next year with better protection. If he doesn't get it done, tank it for Lawrence.

    we are gonna be losing a lot of vets this year in FA most likely. if he walks we potentially get a 3rd in comp picks. might not be worth trading.

    Even if we want to resign him and can't agree on a deal, we can still put the franchise tag on him. That's a big number contract wise, but it's only one year.

    Sign him to a 3 year deal, and draft a guy to groom (Eason, possibly Love in the 2nd)

    I don't think Tannehill would be the kind of guy to milk a franchise after signing an extension. He's made plenty of money, yet he took a paycut and grinded out as a backup in order to get an opportunity.

    Also, I'm not sure what we think a guy with potential will do that Tannehill can't. Does Fromm really have a higher ceiling? The positive marks he gets are for his accuracy. Tannehill is completing 80% of his passes to guys that he has no chemistry with. I'm honestly hoping this works out. You can win with a QB who consistently puts the ball in the playmakers hands, and he appears to be good at doing that. Also, several of those throws were ones that you draft a QB early to make.

    some rumors are floating about a possible trade to KC. (I assume that it is largely based on how long Mahomes might be out).

    Exactly what I came to say. If Tannehill continues to play at a high level for the rest of the year, then to think he is going to be content to resign here as a one year bridge to a TBD rookie is pretty delusional imo. You have to strike while the iron is hot in this league. He is going to want pretty big money and a commitment from this organization. Otherwise he'll walk. Hell, he could walk regardless. This is in all likelihood his last chance at big money. He's gonna follow the money.

    Again, all of this is assuming he actually plays well for the rest of the season. Which is far from guaranteed.

    I'm still partial to trying to get one of the rookies in here.
