Miami Rookie QB Ryan Tannehill Off to a Rocky Start at Fins Camp

Is there any doubt that Ryan Tannehill is going to be the Dolphins starter come opening day?

Maybe not.

Today Fins owner Stephen Ross said that a starter from last season, Matt Moore is likely the starter heading into the season.

And don’t forget about offseason pickup David Garrard.

“I’ve consulted with the jury, and we’re giving today’s OTA session to David Garrard. Decision-making is quick. Tannehill is slow,” wrote Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

As for the rookie, he said that Tuesday things were a whole lot quicker than when he was in college.

“It’s faster,” Tannehill told reporters. “I mean it kind of is what I thought it would be. It’s faster. Guys are faster. The play happens faster. But I was expecting it. You know, I wasn’t in a situation where I kind of sat back and said. ‘Wow, so fast.’ It is what it is. It’s … just about getting adjusted to it.”

If he can get adjusted to it, he can expect to be in a dogfight with the two other QB’s for snaps during OTA’s and heading into camp.
