Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill has earned a host of incentives for his play in 2019.
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been instrumental in the Tennessee Titans turning their season around after a 2-4 start, and for his hard work he’s earned a slew of incentives during the 2019 campaign.
Tannehill was inserted into the Week 6 game against the Denver Broncos and officially took over as the team’s starter in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Since then, Tannehill and the Titans have compiled a 9-3 record (including the playoffs), and Tennessee has made an improbable run to the AFC Championship Game.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Tannehill has compiled plenty of incentives in his first season with Tennessee.
"Roster bonus: $250,000 for being on the 46-man roster for 13 games.Passer rating: $1 million for having a rating of better than 96.0.Playing time: $1 million, thanks to $100,000 in each of the 10 games during the season that he participated in more than 50 percent of the plays.Wins: $175,000 because each win netted him $25,000, with all of the seven wins featuring him participating in more than 50 percent.Passing yards: $500,000 for more than 2,250 passing yards.Touchdown passes: $500,000 for more than 20 touchdowns."
In total, Tannehill has earned $10.25 million with the Titans this season, including $5 million coming from the Dolphins. His incentives alone have equaled out to $3.42 million.
In what was one of his best seasons as a pro, Tannehill finished with 2,742 passing yards and 22 touchdowns to just six picks. Tannehill also added four rushing touchdowns to his totals, and he led the NFL in passer rating (117.5) and was third in completion percentage (70.3).
The Titans quarterback was recently voted as the Comeback Player of the Year and Most Improved Player of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America. Chances are he’ll also win AP Comeback Player of the Year on February 1st during the NFL Honors awards show.
As great of a season as he’s had, Tannehill is not done yet. He’ll lead his team into Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday to face the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game with a trip to Super Bowl LIV on the line.
