Ryan Tannehill's days in Miami were numbered when the season ended and today they ended for good.

Miami traded Tannehill on Friday to the Tennessee Titans in a deal that also involved draft picks.

In order to make the trade work, the 30-year-old Tannehill has restructured his contract, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Dolphins will get a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a seventh-round pick this year, while the Titans will receive Tannehill and a sixth-round pick in 2019.

The 30-year-old Tannehill has been the Dolphins starting QB since he was drafted with the eighth overall pick of the 2012 National Football League draft out of Texas A&M. The Dolphins will save $33 million in cap over the next two seasons and are adding a 4th-round pick in 2020. Paying big-time money for a backup quarterback has proven to be a viable approach (see: the Eagles and Nick Foles) and it makes all the sense in the world for the Titans, a team with Marcus Mariota now positioned as its starter.

He missed five games this past season due to a shoulder injury but was able to return for the team's final five games leading the club to a 7-9 record.

And, spoiler alert, the Dolphins do not care one iota about the $5M they're sending to Tennessee. Rudock is the only quarterback in Miami who's attempted a regular-season pass, going 3-for-5 with 24 yards and an interception. Both have had minimal playing time under center.

It's unknown whether the Dolphins have any interest in the quarterback.

He was the first quarterback taken in the top round since Dan Marino.
