He started 11 games last season, completing 64.2 percent of his passes for 1,979 yards with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions.  Marcus Mariota has an experienced new backup. The Titans announced Friday they have acquired Ryan Tannehill from the Dolphins in a deal that also involves three draft picks. Tennessee will also get a 2019 sixth-round pick in the deal, with Miami receiving a 2019 seventh-round pick and a fourth-round selection in 2020.  His departure leaves Miami with only two quarterbacks under contract: Jake Rudock and Luke Falk. “We would like to thank Ryan for his commitment to the Miami Dolphins over the last seven seasons,” Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said in a release. “Ryan is a tireless worker who always put the team first.
