Thursday October 30th, 2014

Miami Dolphins quarterback, Ryan Tannehill has been working with Hall of Famer Dan Marino, Steve Wine of the Associated Press reports.

The Dolphins hired Marino as a special assistant to owner Stephen Ross in August, and Tannehill said they have watch film together a few times.

"Dan has been great," Tannehill said following practice Wednesday, which Marino attended. "He has been around a lot as of recent. I've watched tape with him, and he has been in the QB room. He's a great resource to have around, just because of his knowledge of the game and obviously the success he had during his career."

"It's cool," Tannehill said. "Just him being around showing that he cares, it's nice. He's always just pointing out little things on tape, whether it's a receiver's routes or something I'm doing. He's good at picking up little things and passing them along."

Tannehill has completed 62.3 percent of his passes for 1,619 yards with 11 touchdowns and six interceptions this season. He has started all 39 games since being the No. 8 pick in the 2012 draft by the Dolphins.
