Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill indicated that his recovery from a knee injury is going well.

“I feel really good,” Tannehill told John Congemi of miamidolphins.com “I spent a lot of time getting ready to play, getting ready to be healthy. This offseason, first and foremost was getting healthy, doing everything I could to get healthy. I was able to get away for a little bit and enjoy the offseason a little bit. And for the past six plus weeks, I’ve really been working hard and throwing with the guys and training and really preparing ourselves for this upcoming season.”

Dolphins coach Adam Gase has made clear he does not believe Tannehill’s mobility will be dramatically, negatively impacted by the knee injury and brace the quarterback plans to wear.

Tannehill also believes operating the same offense for a second consecutive season will be an advantage.

In the interview, Tannehill wore a T-Shirt with the slogan, “Zero In” which will be a 2017 motto for the Dolphins.

“Really just trying to lock in,” Tannehill said. “Like the shirt says, “Zero In.” So last year was kind of a starting point for us. But we left so much out there. So many details that we didn’t “Zero In” on and lock in and be consistent with. So that’s kind of our theme right now, heading into this offseason is focusing on the little things, details and improving those. And that will pay big dividends on the grand scheme of things.”

Tannehill sounds confident.

“I’m looking to take a big step forward this year,” Tannehill said. “You’re kind of getting your feet wet in the spring of your first year and along the way you’re learning and taking in information and new stuff. And along the way you miss a few things or are not as good at some things as you’d like to be. So you combine that with having a year of tape and film and just being in the offense and you should see some big improvements throughout the spring.”
