Ryan Tannehill: Comeback Player of the Year
After the Miami Dolphins gave up on their former No. 8 overall pick by trading him to the Titans, quarterback Ryan Tannehill revived his career in Nashville.
Tannehill was named the team’s starter in Week 7 after the Titans got off to a 2-4 start, and he led Tennessee to a 7-3 record during the regular season to help get the franchise to the playoffs.
He threw for 2,742 yards and 22 touchdowns to six picks, while also finishing first in the NFL in passer rating (117.5) and third in completion percentage (70.3). Tannehill’s performance took a normally dormant Titans offense to new heights in 2019.
A.J. Brown: Offensive Rookie of the Year
Once Tannehill was inserted into the starting lineup in Week 7, rookie wideout A.J. Brown really took off. He compiled four of his five 100-yard games in that span and finished with 52 catches for 1,051 yards and nine total touchdowns (eight receiving).
He led all rookie receivers in multiple categories and finished second in the NFL in yards per reception (20.2). From Week 7 on, Brown finished with the third-highest Pro Football Focus grade among all NFL receivers.
Ben Jones: Walter Payton Man of the Year
Every year, the NFL nominates one player from each team for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award, which recognizes a player “who has shown exceptional character and work off the football field as well as on.”
Ben Jones is the nominee for the Titans.
