Tannehill signed a contract extension with the Dolphins through the 2020 season on Monday.

Tannehill is coming off a career-high 4,045 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and just 12 interceptions last season, making him the sort of ascending talent the Dolphins feel comfortable locking down as their quarterback long-term. Additionally, Tannehill will have new offensive weapons DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Jordan Cameron surrounding him this season, offering further reason to like Tannehill's rising fantasy value heading into the upcoming campaign.

The Dolphins have reportedly exercised Tannehill's fifth-year contract option, NFL.com reports.

The move ensures that the Dolphins will be able to retain Tannehill's playing rights through the 2016 season. Moreover, the 26-year-old QB, who finished the 2014 season with a career-high 4,045 passing yards, to go along with 27 TDs and 12 picks, is a candidate work out an extension with the Dolphins down the road. In any case, per the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Tannehill will make $2.1 million between base salary and a roster bonus this coming season and when his fifth-year option is triggered, he'd be in line to earn a base salary of $16.15 million in 2016.

The Dolphins have had internal discussions about signing Tannehill to a long-term contract, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.The report suggests that such a deal would be similar to the one signed by Andy Dalton, as opposed to the contracts signed by Joe Flacco, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and others. Dalton's deal really only ties him to the Bengals for two seasons, with the total value of the contract inflated by money that will only be earned if the team ultimately decides to hold on to him. This type of contract would make sense for Tanehill, who is arguably the best quarterback the Dolphins have had since Dan Marino, even though he hasn't quite been good enough to commit to for the long haul. Tannehill posted career-best numbers in every key statistical category in 2014, but his inability to throw an accurate deep ball has been somewhat of a hindrance on the Miami offense.

Tannehill is likely to be the Dolphins quarterback of the future, according to the Miami Herald.

Tannehill's early results have been somewhat inconsistent but the team seems encouraged about what his future will bring to the organization and is likely to offer him a long term contract.

Tannehill completed 23-of-39 passes for 259 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 37-24 loss to the Jets.

Tannehill connected with seven different receivers, throwing his lone touchdown to tight end Charles Clay. He passed the 4,000-yard mark for the first time in his career, though he failed to throw for multiple touchdowns in four of his last five games, as the Dolphins were eliminated from playoff contention in Week 16. Tannehill will be the starter next season, and if he can continue to develop with wideouts Jarvis Landry and Mike Wallace, he could certainly improve on his solid 2014 campaign.

Tannehill completed 35-of-47 passes for 396 yards, with four touchdowns and one interception Sunday against the Vikings, becoming the first Dolphins quarterback since Dan Marino to throw that many touchdown passes in a game, according to ESPN.com.

Tannehill connected with seven different receivers, throwing his touchdown passes to wide receiver Mike Wallace (two), running back Damien Williams and tight end Dion Sims. He has now thrown for at least 345 yards in back-to-back games, and he could keep the solid play going in Week 17 against the Jets, who have allowed the third-most passing touchdowns this season.

Tannehill completed 29-of-47 passes for a season-high 346 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions during Sunday's 41-13 loss to the Patriots. He also added 21 rushing yards on three carries and fumbled twice, though both were recovered.

Tannehill connected with eight different receivers, focusing on starting wideouts Mike Wallace and Jarvis Landry, who combined for 13 catches on 18 targets for 203 yards. Tannehill has now failed to throw for multiple touchdowns in three straight games, and he may have a tough time yardage-wise in Week 16 against a Vikings defense allowing the sixth-fewest passing yards per game this season.

Tannehill completed 23-of-33 passes for 227 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Ravens. For the fifth straight game, he didn't make any impact as a rusher, running for just six yards on two carries.

Tannehill got off to a decent start, throwing his lone touchdown pass late in the first quarter. He struggled to do much over the final 45 minutes, however, leading the Dolphins to just three points. After rushing for at least 35 yards in five straight games during the middle of the season, he's now gone five contests without 20+ yards on the ground. To help fantasy owners, he'll need to really bump up his passing production over the final few games, if the recent lack of rushing stats continues. Next up for Tannehill and Miami will be the Patriots on the road.

Tannehill completed 25-of-35 passes for 235 yards, with no touchdowns and one interception, in Monday's 16-13 win over the New York Jets.

Tannehill added 13 yards on four carries, marking a fourth straight game with 16 rushing yards or fewer. Per usual, the Dolphins largely moved the ball with short and intermediate passes, rarely trying to hit anything deep down the field. Tannehill was mostly accurate on the shorter throws, but he did make one terrible decision, which led to an ugly dropped interception by Jets linebacker Calvin Pace. Tannehill also saw Mike Wallace drop a touchdown, though it would have been a difficult catch. While this wasn't a terrible showing, Tannehill produced very modest numbers against a defense that has consistently been roasted by opposing quarterbacks this season. He gets a similar matchup at home next week, as the Ravens have a strong front seven but a terrible secondary, much like the Jets. Of course, the Baltimore offense is far more threatening than New York's, which means the Dolphins will likely need more from Tannehill in a crucial game for the AFC playoff picture.

Tannehill completed 26-of-36 passes for 228 yards, with three touchdowns and an interception. He also ran four times for 15 yards with a score on the ground.

While it was a monster fantasy performance, Tannehill missed some throws, and posted a mediocre 6.3 YPA. He continues to show a good rapport with slot wideout Jarvis Landry, as the duo hooked up seven times for 50 yards and two touchdowns. He could find statistical success again in Week 13, facing a suspect Jets' secondary.
