The guarantee is made up of an $11.5 million signing bonus and his 2015 and 2016 base salaries. Tannehill's 2017 salary is guaranteed for injury, with $3.5 million becoming fully guaranteed on the 5th day of the 2016 League Year and the balance becoming fully guaranteed on the 5th day of the 2017 League Year. $5.525 million of his 2018 salary is also guaranteed for injury and becomes fully guaranteed on the 5th day of the 2018 League Year. Miami increased his 2015 cap charge by $842,477 with the extension but decreased his 2016 charge by $4.515 million.

based on multiple reports Tannehill restructured his contract on March 14, 2018.

We will update when we confirm the actual amount.
