Man, things aren’t going well in Miami right now.
This morning, the Miami Dolphins fired head coach Joe Philbin after a disappointing start to the season. With a midseason firing, there are always follow-up stories that can be pretty interesting — like a franchise quarterback struggling to beat the scout team and then talking shit about their paychecks afterward.
Ryan Tannehill, a former Texas A&M star and current disappointing quarterback for the Dolphins, is doing just that. After throwing multiple picks to a unit of NFL misfits, he proceeded to shit all over them for not making any money.
From National Football Post:
On Saturday during practice, [Ryan] Tannehill, after a couple of practice squad players forced turnovers, Tannehill made negative comments toward them, including saying: “Enjoy your practice squad paycheck, enjoy your practice squad trophy.”
Sources say this has been going on for the past few weeks as the practice squad players have been intercepting Tannehill and frustrating the former Texas A&M wide receiver turned quarterback.
“Enjoy doing your job! Enjoy making me look like shit! Enjoy your shitty one bedroom apartment that you can only lease for six months at a time because at any moment you might get cut! At least I’m still rich, motherfuckers.”
Apparently, Philbin had a talk with the practice squad about taking it easy on Tannehill because he was getting so rattled in practice. How absurd is that?
For what it’s worth, Tannehill signed a six-year, $96 million dollar contract in the offseason — with $45 million in guaranteed money. Practice squad players make $6,300 per week.
What a fucking baby..
