The answer is no.
“Never happening,” is what I’ve been told by folks familiar with the Miami Dolphins thinking. “Has never come up. Never happening.”
And so if you are thinking the Dolphins are about to dump Ryan Tannehill by the November 1 trade deadline or after this season to replace him with Jay Cutler … no. Just no.
Why is this a topic?
Well, my friend Mike Florio asked me about it on his highly entertaining (at least when I’m on) PFT Live radio show on NBC Sports Radio. Then he wrote about on ProFootballTalk.com and then radio shows elsewhere picked it up. And then it got onto some social media circles.
And now it’s a thing because Tannehill didn’t play great in a 22-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday night.
Except it is not a thing with the Dolphins.
They haven’t discussed it. The salary cap ramifications are moot because it is not being considered. The Dolphins, at least, aren’t planning for it. They are not going to do it, based on what I’ve been told.
