Tony Pauline has two rumors this week that affect the Tennessee Titans.
Since Jon Robinson came in and weeded out some of the more talkative scouts and front office people, the Tennessee Titans have been very hard to get information on.
With rumors rarely leaking out, the most you can rely on is intuition and reading between the lines with what other teams say.
That is exactly the case in Tony Pauline’s mailbag from this week where Titans fans should have noticed two things that will impact their offseason.
1. Tom Brady is not bound for Tennessee.
There was a lot of buzz during the regular season that the Titans could be a fit for Tom Brady this offseason if he decided to move on from the New England Patriots (man that still feels weird to type).
While the rise of Ryan Tannehill quieted some of those rumors, there was a contingent of fans that still thought bringing in a 43 year old (by the time the season starts) quarterback and having him learn the offense was the better option.
Well, Pauline suggests that you can put that rumor to bed and start imagining Brady on Miami Beach.
"The two teams mentioned throughout Senior Bowl week were the Miami Dolphins and Las Vegas Raiders. Miami seems to be the team continually in the conversation and I can tell you this:1) Word is that Tom Brady’s wife prefers Miami.2) The rumor for months now is Brady will ultimately buy an ownership interest in the Miami Dolphins. If it happens, it won’t be for a few years, but the rumblings over Brady taking an ownership position in the franchise have been getting louder."
2. Logan Ryan would need to come back to Tennessee despite better offers.

Even if the Tennessee Titans want to bring back Logan Ryan, there is a good chance that they won’t pay him what he asks considering he is set to be one of the best free agent cornerbacks in 2020.
Pauline further backs this up by linking him with the Philadelphia Eagles who desperately need cornerback help.
"At this point, I don’t know who will be the best at the position. But I can tell you this – several people tell me Logan Ryan will be in play for the Eagles and it makes sense. He grew up right outside of Philadelphia, he’d be a terrific fit from a scheme and personality point of view and he may be slightly less expensive than Byron Jones."
I love this fit for Philadelphia and it meshes with the idea that Ryan is just going to be too expensive to keep this offseason. With that in mind it allows everyone to shift free agency focus more towards Tannehill, Conklin and Henry rather than a fourth piece at a premium position.
