The Dolphins are set to report for 2018 training camp later this week, and a lot of the eyes of observers, analysts and fans will be immediately focused on Ryan Tannehill.

Tannehill, as you probably are aware, is coming off an ACL re-injury in last year’s training camp and missed the entire 2017 seaosn after surgery. And, Miami coach Adam Gase and the front office are banking on him being back not full health and excellent play from the beginning of things this season.

Tannehill is ready to go and wanted to get the Fins fans ready with a short “hype video” that he posted Tuesday afternoon before things get underway:

Granted, it’s video of the QB in a hat and shorts throwing 3/4 speed short pass routes to receivers who aren’t even being covered. Still, there is reason for some measured excitement to have him back.

Earlier this summer, Gase spoke openly on the Fins website podcast “The Audible” about his hopes for Tannehill. He said in part:

“He’s rehabbed really hard. He’s been grinding not only physically, but mentally. I think he did a great job last year of taking it all in…. He took a step back and asked, ‘Ok, what would I do different here.’ or ‘Why’d he do this?’ Gase continued, “You can see now…when we are going over schemes…when we are going over concepts, he knows the ‘Why’ behind everything we are trying to do.”

He will obviously have much more to say on this subject, including backups Brock Osweiler, Bryce Petty and David Fales, beginning  later this week.

And Tannehill will get first shot to either begin to silence the doubters or reinforce his critics. Critics, who believe the Dolphins should have done more in free agency or the draft to have someone backup that’s better than a couple of cast-offs and an unproven guy from their roster last year.
