For the first time in his young career, Tannehill worked with the first-team on Thursday.
The Miami Herald reported Tannehill made some nice throws in his time, including a deep pass to Chad Johnson that was broken up by Nolan Carroll. He showed good touch and accuracy in hooking up with Johnson on some short and intermediate routes.
"I think I've gotten better every practice," he said. "I want to be the guy. It's not a goal to be a backup. I want to play; I want to get in there."
