ednesday regarding the health of his shoulder Akeem Spence Jersey , as he has done daily since rejoining the Miami Dolphins‘ lineup last week.He literally made that gesture to the bench a couple of times during Sunday’s loss at Indianapolis , Tannehill’s first game in seven weeks. He was responding to inquiries via headset from coach Adam Gase.“Sometimes Gase will pop in my helmet and just make sure everything is all right,” Tannehill said with a smile. “He’s like my mom, like, ‘Are you OK?'”Physically Tannehill is OK, yes. Returning from an injury to the capsule in his throwing shoulder, he said the pain is manageable and not as bad as last week. He’s wearing a shoulder harness on the field but said his play isn’t affected by the injury. He participated fully in practice Wednesday A.J. Derby Jersey , which is more than he did last week.More Miami Dolphins newsDolphins sign hometown WR Allen Hurns to 1-year contractNew Dolphins coach Brian Flores has his own daily workout at training campDolphins assistant coach Jim Caldwell takes leave of absence to address health issuesTwo-time Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones rejoins Dolphins after skipping voluntary practicesDolphins QBs Josh Rosen, Ryan Fitzpatrick embrace battle for No. 1 jobBut aside from his health, things are very much in doubt. Tannehill’s streak of never taking a snap in the postseason will likely continue, with the Dolphins (5-6) trying to break a downward spiral when they face Buffalo (4-7) on Sunday.Beyond this year, the 30-year-old Tannehill’s future is very much in doubt. His contract balloons to $18.7 million in base salary in 2019, when he would count $26.6 million against the salary cap, which could compel the Dolphins to seek a cheaper Josh Sitton Jersey , younger alternative at quarterback.Now 40-43 as a starter, Tannehill said he hasn’t been given any assurances beyond this season. He might need to play well in the final five weeks to keep his job.“I don’t know what the agenda is, but that’s my goal — to go play well and lead this team to wins,” he said. “I don’t try to think about things I can’t control; just go out and control what I can control and play as best I can.”He played well last week and ranks 15th in the NFL with passer rating of 97.2, which would be a career high. But he’s leading an injury-riddled offense, which makes Tannehill’s job — and any evaluation of him — more difficult.The line is in patchwork shape, and explosive Daniel Kilgore Jersey , versatile receivers Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant have been sidelined for the season. Gase conceded play-calling options are more limited without Wilson and Grant.“There’s a little bit of change there,” Gase said. “We did a lot of different things with those two guys. Those two guys were able to be in the backfield, in the slot, outside. They just had a lot of variety. Now we have taller guys that are more long-striders. It’s not so much the initial quickness-type things that those two guys had.”Tannehill’s not one to complain about a lack of support, but he could point out the Dolphins went 2-3 without him, which helped create the hole they’re in.Seven teams in the AFC have a better record, leaving the Dolphins and their quarterback with little margin for error in December.“Yeah Albert Wilson Jersey , the margin is small,” Tannehill said. “We have to go out and we have to win. That’s what it is. There’s not a whole lot of sugarcoating it.”Otherwise, it will be thumbs down on 2018. A 37-year-old pass rusher probably shouldn’t be making nearly $8 million per year. But not every 37-year-old is Cameron Wake.Wake, who parlayed a stint in the CFL into a highly successful NFL career, has ended his long-time affiliation with the Dolphins, signing as a free agent with the Titans. Here’s a look at his new deal:1. Signing bonus: $4 million.2. 2019 base salary: $3.25 million, fully guaranteed.3. 2020 roster bonus: $1 million Robert Quinn Jersey , due the fifth day of the 2020 league year.4. 2020 base salary: $5.5 million, $2.5 million of which is guaranteed for injury at signing and becomes fully guaranteed on the fifth day of the 2020 league year.5. 2021 base salary: $7 million.6. 2019-2021 per-game roster bonuses: $46,875 per game ($750,000 per year maximum).That’s $7.25 million fully guaranteed, with a total guarantee of $9.75 million. Wake spent 10 years in Miami, with 98 career sacks.
