Former Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Ryan Tannehill has finally agreed to terms with the Miami Dolphins and ends his short holdout, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Tannehill has already missed the first two days of Dolphins training camp, and some were already calling for Tannehill to be the backup if his hold out lasted much longer.

Now that the No. 8 overall pick from the 2012 NFL Draft has signed, Tannehill can get into Dolphins camp and work on possibly becoming the starting quarterback. The other two quarterbacks that Tennehill will be going up against are veterans David Gerrard and Matt Moore.

The details of his contract were not released, but by being picked in the top-10 he will have a four-year deal with the fifth being a team option. Tannehill has been training in Braderton, Fla., so he should be at Dolphins training camp very shortly.
