Titans Want to Get Ryan Tannehill Under Contract Before Free Agency

The Titans have a tough decision to make this offseason when it comes to the quarterback position, as the club would love to do whatever it takes to get back 2019 postseason hero Ryan Tannehill.

Tannehill helped the Titans top the Patriots and upset the Ravens before they eventually lost to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game in Kansas City.

Now Tannehill is a free agent, and if the Titans don’t tag him or get him inked before free agency starts, he likely is going to get offers from teams that need quarterbacks.

Ian Rapoport of spoke today about Tannehill, and what the Titans game plan is when it comes to getting a deal done with the veteran quarterback.

If the Titans do use the franchise tag on Tannehill, it’s going to run about $27 million for the team, all of which is guaranteed.

There is one major monkey wrench in all of this with the 31-year-old Tannehill, that being if the Titans can find a way, anyway, to talk soon to be free agent QB Tom Brady into coming to Tennessee.

If that happens, the team won’t need Tannehill, but it could take time and a whole lot of money and effort to get Brady to come to Nashville.

Could the Tennessee Titans be looking at a seismic shift at the quarterback spot for the 2020 season?

Well the team has decisions to make after making a surprising run to the AFC Title game last month, and Fox Sports 1 talker Colin Cowherd went on the air today and stated that he thinks that the Titans could be one of those teams that makes a possible run at future Hall of Fame QB Tom Brady.

“Tennessee speaks Tom’s language,” Cowherd said.

Cowherd says he thinks there’s a 25 percent chance Tom ends up with the Titans, but that he still thinks that Tom will head back to the place he knows best – New England.

How quickly the odds would shift in the AFC and the entire NFL if the Titans can find a way to lure Brady from New England to Tennessee.

Here’s the complete 5-plus minute clip from earlier today:

Could TE Delanie Walker Be on the Chopping Block for the Titans This Offseason? has out a list of one player for each AFC team they think might be on the chopping block this offseason.

For the Titans the site has picked tight end Delanie Walker as the player that could find himself released. Here’s what they have to say about Walker getting cut.

Tennessee Titans – TE Delanie Walker

Dead Cap Hit $1.66m, Cap Saving $6.7m

Between 2014 and 2017, Delanie Walker never had less than 63 receptions and 800 yards in a season for the Tennessee Titans. He signed a two-year extension prior to the 2018 season, a move that looked set to see him finish his career with the team. In the two seasons since he inked the deal, Walker has played only eight games thanks to two severe ankle sprains.

In his absence, the Titans have seen young Jonnu Smith emerge as something of a playmaker at the tight end spot for them. Smith had 35 receptions for 439 yards and 3 touchdowns during the 2019 regular season. His 0.40 Target NEP per target was the 11th-best among the 38 tight ends to see at least 40 targets. Walker’s salary is simply too large for a player coming off two serious injuries who may find himself behind a younger man on the depth chart. It would be cheaper and easier for the Titans to move on.

Titans Defensive Coordinator Dean Pees Announces Retirement

One day after an AFC Title game loss to the Chiefs, the Titans lost again on Monday, this time on their coaching staff as defensive coordinator Dean Pees has announced his retirement after 12 seasons in the NFL.

Pees is 70 years of age and battled some health issues during the 2018 season. He spent six years as the head coach at Kent State but has spent most of his lengthy football career as a defensive assistant.

Pees served as the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach for the Patriots, Ravens and Titans from 2006-2019, leading a top-12 defense in points allowed per game in all but one year. He has Super Bowl rings from both the Patriots and the Ravens.

Pees did a great job in his two years as the DC under Mike Vrabel in Tennessee.

He deserves plenty of credit for holding the Patriots (13 points) and Ravens (12) in check during the Titans magical playoff run in January and will be greatly missed.

Titans Topple 14-2 Ravens, Pound Their Way to AFC Title Game with 28-12 Win in Baltimore

From Fox News:

The Tennessee Titans fear no one. Not even the NFL’s best team.

Why should they with Derrick Henry running — and even throwing — the ball, and a big-play defense making clutch stops and turnovers?

One week after dominating defending Super Bowl champion New England, Henry gained 195 yards rushing and threw a 3-yard touchdown pass in a 28-12 victory over the Ravens. Baltimore (14-3) had won its last 12 games, with quarterback Lamar Jackson setting records and looking unstoppable.

On Saturday night, it was Henry who was unstoppable.

Plus, Tennessee’s defense had two interceptions of Jackson, who also lost a fumble, and the Titans (11-7) twice stopped Baltimore on fourth-and-1.

Henry’s jump-pass to Corey Davis displayed yet another of his skills. He has completed three throws in four attempts in his career.

But it’s the way he plows over and through opponents that makes Henry — and the Titans — dangerous. Next week, they will go after their second Super Bowl trip and first since the 2000 season, either at Kansas City or Houston. The last sixth seed to get to the big game was Green Bay in the 2010 season; the Packers won it all.

Tennessee scored all of its points off takeaways or fourth-down stops.

Ryan Tannehill’s throws to Jonnu Smith and Kalif Raymond, who missed the last two games in concussion protocol, gave Tennessee a 14-point edge.
