Jason Taylor: Can "Definitely" Win Super Bowl with Ryan Tannehill


As quarterback Ryan Tannehill prepares for a critical fourth year as the Miami Dolphins' starter, one former notable player thinks the team can "definitely" win a Super Bowl with him at the helm of the offense.

"I like a lot of things about the team," Taylor said to the Miami Herald. "I love the quarterback. There's not a whole lot of guys in this league I would take over Tannehill. I'm very confident you can win with Ryan Tannehill. You can definitely win a championship with him."

Tannehill unequivocally racked his best season as a pro in 2014, throwing for 4,045 yards, 27 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions -- all personal bests. Unfortunately the team finished 8-8 for the second consecutive year, missing out the playoffs again as the defense collapsed down the stretch, allowing 35 points or more in four of their final six games.

With Miami releasing Brian Hartline this morning, Mike Wallace's future with the team in question, and Charles Clay up for free agency, Tannehill could be throwing to an array of new faces in 2015.
