News: Head coach Adam Gase said Tannehill (knee) does not have any restrictions, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Impact: Tannehill missed the end of the 2016 season with a sprained MCL and partially torn ACL, but Gase said Tuesday that Tannehill likely would've played in the playoffs if the Dolphins had advanced beyond the opening round, the Herald's Armando Salguero reports. The 28-year-old quarterback is expected to participate in the team's offseason program, albeit with a knee brace he'll likely continue to wear throughout the regular season. Gase doesn't expect the brace to impact his signal-caller's mobility, which has been one of Tannehill's consistent assets during a not-so-consistent career. If he does need to stay in the pocket more, he should at least benefit from an improved supporting cast that now includes tight end Julius Thomas.
