The Miami Dolphins will have to make a decision with Ryan Tannehill moving forward. According to sources, the Dolphins will move on from Tannehill after the season.

There are expected to be several changes with the Dolphins in the off-season. The team is expected to fire general manager Mike Tannenbaum.

Head coach Adam Gase is also likely to be fired. That would leave new leadership to deciding Tannehill’s future.

The Dolphins do have a way to rid themselves of his contract. Following this season, the franchise has a potential out before the start of the 2019 season, according to Spotrac.

By releasing Tannehill, the team would be responsible for $13.4 million in dead cap space. That would save the franchise to paying nearly $40 million over the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

Tannehill is 5-5 in 10 starts this season. He has gone 158 of 243 for 1,832 yards. He also has 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

The 5-5 record in 10 starts is his worst in his career, as he went 6-10 during the 2015 season.

In the past two games, though, he has had just 254 yards. He had 146 yards on Sunday in a 17-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. One week earlier, he had 108 yards in a loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

His best game of the season came in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders as he went 17 of 23 for 289 yards with three touchdowns.
