Over his years with the Miami Dolphins, Ryan Tannehill has been the only constant on the team’s offense. Depending on your view, this is either a good thing or a bad thing. No matter though, with all of the change that has taken place around him, Tannehill has had plenty of experience when it comes to knowing and evaluating those around him.

Interviewed last week about the offense this year, Ryan Tannehill openly told everyone how excited he was about the amount of talent present on the offense this year. Specifically, Tannehill sounded out the talent in the team’s receiving corps this season.

“Honestly, I can say it’s definitely the most talent we’ve had with the receiving corps, bringing everyone back, having a second year together in the same offense. That’s going to be huge for us. Adding Julius Thomas and Anthony Fasano, veterans who have played a lot of football, is big.”

Tannehill has a really good point here. Bringing back Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, and Kenny Stills, the Dolphins have one of the best if not the best receiving corps in all of the NFL. Adding Julius Thomas and Anthony Fasano to the list is like adding a cherry to the top of your milkshake. In total, the passing offense this year should compete with those in the upper echelon of the NFL.

Tannehill was also happy with the status of the offensive line thanks to some movement and added talent that took place during this past offseason.

“Keeping most of the offensive line together, adding a few pieces. Putting Laremy Tunsil back at his natural position. That’s going to be huge for us. You start to stack all those pieces together and we have a good unit. Now it’s a matter of being able to elevate our play throughout the season.”

With the addition of Ted Larsen and Isaac Asiata to the unit, Miami’s offensive line seems to once again have a solid base for this season. Given Tannehill’s past experiences with offensive lines, this unit must look like an All-Pro unit. If they can all keep it up though, the best may be yet to come for the Miami Dolphins.

    Miami will have a very good offense in 2017. If the OL is significantly upgraded and Julius Thomas returns to form Miami will have an excellent offense.
