But then, there’s no denying he’s a good playmaker, no wonder the Fins head coach insisted he was relevant enough to remain the team’s starting quarterback. Adam Gase made the announcement recently (in March 2008), regardless of the fact that the team did well without Ryan after his anterior cruciate ligament injury and a repair operation that kept him off the field all throughout the 2017 season, giving Jay Cutler his place in the team.
Sure, there’s something about Ryan that the coach thinks is crucial to his team, but the likes of Miko Grimes, the wife of ex-Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes wouldn’t be eager to believe that Mr. Tannehill adds unique value to the Dolphins. In case you missed it, Lady Grimes had a good time whipping Ryan on Twitter sometime in 2015 over the team’s poor performance. She tweeted that Ryan “stank” wondering how many people the quarterback would be fired before management realized he was the team’s problem.
You don’t have to make up your mind about this player’s caliber Ryan is all Miko has to say about the man, his deeds speak for themselves. Although he finished his first season with The Killer Bees Defense, setting new rookie records for passing yards and completions, his performance in the 2013 season game against the New England Patriots was super- doping. With 3 touchdowns, he went for 312 yards, had no interceptions and was fired four times.
He followed his great performance in 2014 season and he brought him a 6-year contract extension worth $96 million; that was May 2015. Ryan has proven his worth this season by racking up 12 interceptions, 24 touchdowns and 4,208 passing yards. The 2016 season arrived and he hit a career-best 67.1 winning percentage, 12 interceptions with 19 touchdowns and 2,995 yards.
Among other things, his franchise records with The Fins include his most consecutive successful passes in 2015. At 25, the record also stands as the NFL record for the year. From 2012 to 2016, Ryan Tannehill had the highest completion percentage at 62.2%. In 2014, he was the team’s player with the highest number of successful passes and the highest completion percentage in a single season, at 392 and 66.4% respectively.
That’s not all, he set a record 48 yards in 2013, becoming the longest rush by a quarterback. That was after he rushed for 31 yards, the longest rush by a rookie quarterback the previous year (2012). The year also saw him set other team records for most pass attempts, most passing yards, and most completions during a rookie season. As a result, it surpassed previous records reaching 484, 3,294 and 282.
Who is Ryan Tannehill’s wife?
As far as anyone knows, Ryan Tannehill’s love life revolves around his wife, Lauren Tannehill, whom he married in January 2012 after courting her for about two years. Although the details of how they met and fell in love have been left to the imagination of those fascinated by their adventure, the two are said to have met in Florida in 2009.
While it’s been hard to learn a thing or two about Lauren as her life has been somewhat overshadowed by her husband’s career, we can say that her marriage to Ryan has so far produced a son who they have called Steel Ryan Tannehill. Shortly after, (May 2018), Lauren announced via Instagram that she and Ryan were expecting their second child.
According to the quarterback, Lauren has been a good and good wife. He expressed that a lot of his inspiration to stay strong and get through tough times comes from her. In particular, the man is happy with his wife for dealing with her emotions throughout the 2017 season as he battled ACL injuries.
