  • Dolphins Name Ryan Tannehill Starting Quarterback

    Tannehill chosen Dolphins' starting QB - Yahoo! Sports

    DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- With his NFL debut still more than two weeks away, Ryan Tannehill can already boast of an achievement unprecedented among Miami Dolphins quarterbacks: He won a starting job in his first training camp.

    New coach Joe Philbin gave Tannehill the job Monday, meaning the Dolphins will have a rookie QB start a season opener for the first time when they play at Houston on Sept. 9.

    Not even Pro Football Hall of Famers Dan Marino or Bob Griese started the first game of their rookie season.

    Tannehill beat out Matt Moore, who started the final 12 games last year.
