DAVIE, Fla. – Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill came out firing on Wednesday to reports that he disparaged teammates in London.

Tannehill admitted that there was a confrontation with members of the practice squad as the team tried to get ready for their game against the Jets.

The fourth-year quarterback did tell the players that they would receive a "scout team trophy."

However, Tannehill claims he did not make fun of their salary, as had been reported.

"I'm upset," Tannehill said Wednesday. "Honestly, it's slanderous to report things that, first of all, I didn't say. To put words into my mouth that I didn't say, to degrade my reputation and what I stand for, honestly, it's sickening to me. On top of that, just the fact that something inside the locker room gets out upsets me as well."
