Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill To Start Getting More First-Team Reps
On the final day of the team's offseason program, Miami Dolphins first-round quarterback Ryan Tannehill (finally) got some work with the No. 1 offense after watching David Garrard and Matt Moore split the first-team reps. Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin seemed pleased with the progress that Tannehill is making, but lamented some interceptions in two-minute and red-zone drills. "He made a lot of progress. I thought there were a lot of good things," Philbin said, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. "Ryan threw a couple real nice balls. He made a couple good adjustments in terms of recognition of protection. We like his poise, intelligence, continuity. ... We can't throw interceptions in a two-minute drill."Tannehill said in an interview with NFL Network's Solomon Wilcots after Thursday's practice that he will continue to get more reps with the starters, which will ultimately help him adjust to the pro game. "I got more comfortable as the day went on, just the speed of the game," Tannehill told Wilcots. "It's a little bit faster with the ones than it is going with the other groups. I feel like I got better as the day went on and we'll see what happens and hopefully I can get more reps in August (during training camp)."
