Tannehill: QB runs 'always a part of our offense'


While Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is a thrower first, the former college wide receiver still has a little runner in him, too.

Tannehill took off on his feet 49 times for 211 yards and two touchdowns in his rookie season. We expect those numbers to increase in 2013.

“It’ll always be a small part of our offense,” Tannehill said Wednesday in conference call with season-ticket holders, via the Palm Beach Post. (photo: June Rivera, Flickr)

“I don’t think that we’re going to rely heavily on my feet. … But with the evolution of the NFL, how things are trending at this point, it’s a good switch-up to have in your back pocket.”

Here's a little something from us in February on Tannehill and the read-option.
