Flores: QB Tannehill's future in Miami undecided

INDIANAPOLIS – New head coach Brian Flores continues to plot the future of the Miami Dolphins, and quarterback Ryan Tannehill is not guaranteed to be along for the ride.
Flores, speaking Wednesday morning at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine, said Tannehill, 30, still could be part of the team going forward. But his fate is not yet determined.
“Right now, everything is in the evaluation process,” said Flores, who was hired the day after helping the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl over the Los Angeles Rams.
Tannehill’s salary-cap hit for next season is extremely high at $26.6 million. Tannehill missed all of 2017 due to an injury and missed five games because of a sore throwing shoulder in 2018.
Tannehill, a 2012 first-round pick from Texas A&M, did have flashes of brilliance, including games against Flores, as the former Patriots defensive coordinator noted Wednesday.
But Miami also has a chance to select either an understudy or replacement in the first round of the 2019 draft. The Dolphins own the 13th overall pick in April.
“Everything is on the table. … No decisions are final,” Flores said. “We have time to make those decisions.”
