Fans were glad to see Tannehill taking a moment to mentor a quarterback that could be his replacement in the near future.
“Both Tannehill and Woodside helping Malik. Team players there, only concern is winning,” a fan said.
“When you remember folks wanting to run Tannehill out of TN(again) because they thought he wasn’t actually going to mentor Malik..good times, good times lol,” said another fan.
It’s unclear if Tannehill will get the start this weekend against the Houston Texans. If not, his advice to Willis could be invaluable this week.
