Ryan Tannehill Reacts To Tom Brady Replacing Him On Titans
Ryan Tannehill reacted to Tom Brady potentially replacing him on the Tennessee Titans in a very classy way this past week.
Last year, Tannehill stepped in for Marcus Mariota midseason and led the team on an improbable run.
After qualifying for an AFC Wild Card slot, Tannehill guided the Titans to victories over the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens in the Wild Card Round and Divisional Round, respectively.
From there they ultimately got bounced by the eventual Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.
Despite being on the winning side of Tennessee’s Wild Card battle with New England, Tannehill currently finds himself in a situation where he may be supplanted by the quarterback of the losing side.
Over the past few weeks, rumors have run rampant that the Titans were going to make a big play for Brady in free agency.
Between the talent on the roster and Brady’s close relationship with head coach Mike Vrabel, the speculation certainly makes a certain degree of sense.
This past week, Tannehill appeared on SiriusXM NFL Radio and acknowledged that the looming free agency period should be “exciting.”
Moreover, he seems to understand that he will need to wait and see some other dominoes drop before his own future becomes clear.
“We’ll see,” Tannehill said.
“It’s gonna be an exciting couple of weeks no matter what happens.”
The Titans acquired Tannehill in a trade with the Miami Dolphins, but ultimately sat him for half the year. When he finally got the starting nod in Week 6, he went 7-3 as a starter.
Would the Titans really reward that effort by letting him walk? We’re less than two weeks away from getting an answer once and for all.
