The Jets won't cut him, and with his injury history I wouldn't trade picks for him. The thing is, the Dolphins may have considered paying him $5 million for one year and the incentives would kick in if Tannehill were injured for a period of time, but with our free agent dead money choking this team this year and next year, it would have been foolish to sign him.
