Dolphins GM: Tannehill Needs Help On O

Jeff Ireland effectively saved his job with the selection of Ryan Tannehill as the Miami Dolphins’ first-round pick last April.

Had Tannehill been a Blaine Gabbert-level misfire, it’s likely Ireland would have used the last of his nine lives as the Dolphins’ general manager.

Instead, Tannehill won the starting job out of training camp and showed enough progress during the season to give the Dolphins confidence that he’s their longtime solution at quarterback.

With $46 million in cap space and nine draft picks, Ireland’s next task becomes building an offense around Tannehill.
