Tannehill will receive a four-year contract that's worth $12.688 million, and features a fifth-year option that is held by the team.
The majority of Tannehill's money will be guaranteed, which is standard for first-round deals under the new CBA. However, the holdup for Tannehill, who was selected eighth overall after starting 19 games at quarterback for Texas A&M, was "offset language," which involves how much of his salary Tannehill would receive from the Dolphins if Miami released him before the deal expires.
According to ProFootballtalk.com, Tannehill and his agent, Pat Dye, agreed to a contract that included "offset language." That report couldn't be immediately verified by the Sun-Sentinel.
