Lost in all the Super Bowl talk the past few days seems to be the fact the Miami Dolphins are moving on from starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

According to a report from the Miami Herald late last week, the Dolphins won’t be keeping Tannehill as their starting for the upcoming season. They might try to trade him, but the outlook isn’t great considering the fact he has a ton of money left on his deal.

It’s kind of crazy that the Dolphins are moving away from Tannehill. Is he the best quarterback in the NFL?

No, but he’s extremely solid. In a league with a terrible quarterback market and a premium on the position, you’d think the Dolphins would want to hang onto him. (RELATED: Patriots Beat The Rams In The Super Bowl)

They must feel there’s a better option out there, but I’m not sure I see it. Is there anybody who actually believes any of the guys in the draft would be better than the former Texas A&M star right now?

I just don’t see that happening.

We’ll have to wait and see who the Dolphins target, but this is an example of a move that could really come back to bite them hard.

Trust me, there’s a good chance we’ll be sitting here in a year talking about how the Dolphins should have hung onto him. The Dolphins are rolling the dice, and that’s always risky when quarterbacks get involved.
