Ryan Tannehill: I’m really excited to have DeVante Parker

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill signed a contract extension that runs through the 2020 season this week that was a bet on his future by the team after three promising years that have ended without playoff berths.

The team reworked Tannehill’s receiving corps during the early stages of the offseason by welcoming Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings and tight end Jordan Cameron while saying goodbye to Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson and tight end Charles Clay. They then added wide receiver DeVante Parker with their first-round pick in a move that has left Tannehill excited about what the former Louisville wideout can bring to the offense.

“I like what I see so far. He’s an athletic guy. Fast, strong hands, adjusts to the ball really well,” Tannehill said during a Thursday appearance on PFT Live. “He’s a natural pass catcher, he doesn’t fight the ball and it’s easy for him to make the tough catch. A guy with that range, his body size and natural pass catching ability, I’m really excited to have him and like what I’ve seen thus far.”

Tannehill also talked about his growing comfort level with the other new targets and his hope that the offense can be more productive in the red zone and on deep balls this year. Many have pointed to a bad relationship with Wallace as a big part of those problems, but Tannehill avoided pointing fingers at anyone for those shortcomings in 2014 by saying that there were a variety of reasons why the team struggled in those areas.

The Dolphins obviously don’t think Tannehill was a major part of those problems and we’ll find out relatively soon if Parker and company were the right prescription for the offense.
