Tannehill turns 31 in July, and his departure from Miami had been expected.
The Titans restructured Tannehill's contract into a deal that will pay him $7 million fully guaranteed with a chance to make up to $12 million in incentives for the 2019 season, a source told ESPN. In return Miami receives a seventh-round pick in 2019 and a fourth-round pick in 2020. Tannehill was never able to take the next step in his development. The Dolphins will save $33 million in cap over the next two seasons and are adding a 4th-round pick in 2020.
Tannehill's sports agency tweeted that as part of the trade, he signed a one-year deal with the Titans.
He departs Miami with a career 62.8 completion percentage and an 87 passer rating, and left money on the table.

Hopefully, however, this posting will satisfy regulars who feel we have given short shrift to Manafort's plight. Manafort's admitted crimes span several years but do not touch on his work as Trump's campaign chairman.
The former first-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars threw for 626 yards and completed over 60-percent of his passes this season.
For the Titans, they've been looking for multiple seasons to find a top-end backup as injury insurance for Mariota.
Tannehill missed all of 2017 and missed five games in 2019 due to a shoulder issue. General manager Jon Robinson said Friday that Gabbert will be released. Both have had minimal playing time under center. The 21-year-old, a committed Christian, has played two years for Nick Saban, who formerly coached the Dolphins.
A native of Lubbock, TX, Tannehill heads into his eighth National Football League season.
Needless to say, the Dolphins' quarterback room is not in great shape at the moment.
