On Saturday during practice, Tannehill, after a couple of practice squad players forced turnovers, Tannehill made negative comments toward them, including saying: “Enjoy your practice squad paycheck, enjoy your practice squad trophy.”
Sources say this has been going on for the past few weeks as the practice squad players have been intercepting Tannehill and frustrating the former Texas A&M wide receiver turned quarterback.
Philbin told the practice squad players to take it easy on Tannehill to not affect the young quarterback’s confidence.
You lavish a QB with big money in the offseason, and less than a month into the season he’s suffering from a confidence issue? Something doesn’t add up there.
The fact that practice squad players are turning him over doesn’t bode well for the rest of this season. [via National Football Post]
