Ryan Tannehill is now practicing with the Miami Dolphins at training camp, after agreeing on a deal with the team. The former Texas A&M star was the eighth overall draft pick.
Terms of the deal, which is said to be for four years, weren't immediately disclosed.
Tannehill missed the first two days of camp while the Dolphins and his agent, Pat Dye Jr., tried to work out a contract.
The rookie is expected to be part of the competition for the starting quarterback job along with returning starter Matt Moore and offseason acquisition David Garrard.
"If he was any other rookie that didn't know the offense, it would be definitely tough on him, but he knows most of the offense," Garrard said Friday. "I think just not being out here with the guys is probably the toughest thing for him. But he'll be fine. For him, coming from this offense in college, that's a big plus for him."
Tannehill is the first quarterback selected in the first round by the Dolphins since Dan Marino in 1983. Tannehill started 19 games at Texas A&M after being switched from wide receiver and his head coach was Mike Sherman, now the offensive coordinator for the Dolphins.
