Titans Make Final Ryan Tannehill Decision For 2020
The Titans made a final Ryan Tannehill decision for 2020 this week.
Tennessee had a magical run in 2019.
Following a disappointing start to the year, the team swapped out Marcus Mariota for Tannehill and then made it to the AFC Championship Game.
Despite ultimately falling short in the AFC Championship Game to the eventual Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, most believe the Titans have a bright future ahead.
Heading into the offseason, Tannehill is going to be an unrestricted free agent.
According to ESPN NFL insider Chris Mortensen, Tennessee has made re-signing the quarterback a top priority.
“I checked in with a source yesterday who said succinctly he is not leaving the Titans,” he said this week.
Tannehill played for the Miami Dolphins for the majority of his career before ultimately being traded to the Titans.
Despite being plagued by various health ailments for a large portion of his Miami stint, Tannehill was always a very talented game manager. He proved that once again with Tennessee.
The Titans started the season off 2-6 through six games, then Tannehill entered as the team’s starter. From there they went on a run that saw them finish 9-7 and earn an AFC Wild Card berth.
In the opening round of the playoffs the Titans upset the New England Patriots.
One week later, they did the same to Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens.
Although Tennessee ended up losing to Kansas City, it was still a successful year by any objective measure.
For his troubles Tannehill was named the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year and will now apparently be rewarded with a very lucrative contract.
