The Miami Dolphins have consistently said Ryan Tannehill is their franchise quarterback despite him missing the 2017 season due to a torn ACL.

On Wednesday, they reportedly backed that claim up.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Tannehill and the Dolphins agreed to a restructured contract that will convert $16.7 million of his $17.5 million base salary to a signing bonus. The move essentially acts as a guarantee of Tannehill’s salary for the 2018 season while giving the Dolphins extra salary cap room.

Miami can now spread that $16.7 million over the next three seasons.
