Ryan Tannehill will be available for the entirety of the Miami Dolphins’ offseason program after missing the last three regular-season games and the postseason with a severe knee sprain.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported late last month that Tannehill’s partially torn ACL is no longer an issue and full reconstructive surgery will not be necessary.
Allen Bailey Elite Jersey Spielman’s vague comments mesh with coach Mike Zimmer’s assessment after the 2016 season.

“I’m worried about Teddy getting better,” Zimmer said in January, via the Minnesota Star Tribune. “He comes in here every single day, busts his rear end and I just want him to get better right now, so we will worry about those things later.”
Zimmer added that the nature of Bridgewater’s injury adds to the uncertainty about when, or if ever, the QB could return.
“With this injury that he has, it’s different with everyone,” Zimmer said at the time. “They went back and, whoever has had this injury, they’ve studied it and the ones [who] have come back and how long it’s taken to come back, how long it hasn’t come back. But they’re all different, there’s no exact injury where they’re all the same.”
The Vikings won’t put a timeline on Bridgewater’s rehab, but it sounds more and more like a return won’t happen in 2017, if ever.
Tony Romo to The Windy City: In this scenario, look for (a) Chicago to release Jay Cutler and (b) Dallas to cut ties with Romo, making the Cowboys veteran a perfect fit for the quarterback-needy Bears. The relationship with Pace — who served as team captain at Eastern Illinois during Romo’s 1999 freshman campaign — only helps. (By the way, who knew Eastern Illinois was such an ultra-flaming hotbed of signal-calling drama?)
