What would contracts for Tennessee Titans top free agents look like?
According to CBS Sports, Ryan Tannehill has already expressed an interest in returning to the Titans for the 2020 season and says that he feels as though the Titans are “moving in the right direction”.
Tannehill had a stellar regular season that started in Week 6 when he was subbed in for Marcus Mariota. One of those games included a big win in Oakland in which he threw for 391 yards and three touchdowns that helped set the Titans up for the wild card spot that they eventually attained.
Tannehill was also recently named the NFL’s highest-graded quarterback by Pro Football Focus. PFF stated that Tannehill finished top three in least “turnover-worthy passes”, ranking only behind Dwayne Haskins and Teddy Bridgewater, both of whom had a combined 173 less attempts.
According to Spotrac, a Tannehill contract could go for four years and $122.2 million ($30.5 million annually). The Titans should try to keep Tannehill for the 2020 season because he showed he has the ability to lead a Titans team to a win, and although he may have under-performed in the playoffs, he was still able to fit into a system of winning football and I think that is most important when looking for a quarterback.
