General manager Jeff Ireland, speaking about Ryan Tannehill to the Dolphins’ web site: "I’m trying not to put too many grandiose expectations on the kid. I think the kid is our future. Obviously, I wouldn't have drafted him with the eighth pick [otherwise]. I feel like he's the kind of guy you want in the locker-room, the kind of athlete you want running an offense. But we’ve got two other quarterbacks here that are very established, very good competitors, so it’s not going to be easy for him."
Tannehill has been slow in making decisions at times and has taken a lot of sacks. But Ireland said, "the speed of the game is challenging for any rookie.
*** Not exactly "news" but it is further evidence that comes from the GM Jeff Ireland about Ryan Tannehill's camp status. I think the regime is clear on their vision for how they want to bring Tannehill along and they do not seem to be in any hurry to rush him into the starting lineup.
