The 6-foot-6, 308-pound right tackle out of Michigan State is an unrestricted free agent this summer and it is important that the Titans make efforts to re-sign him. A right tackle is vitally important to a dominant run game —which is exactly how the Titans have designed the offense — and they are not easy to find.
Jack Conklin gave up only 4 sacks during the regular season while playing 94 percent of all offensive snaps, all the while playing against pass rushers like J.J. Watt, Calais Campbell, and the 2019 sack leader, Shaquil Barrett.
Conklin is only 25 years old, giving him plenty of time to improve on an offensive line that was ranked No. 8 by PFF. His ability to create holes for Henry and protect Tannehill in the passing game will be essential to continue success.
Spotrac has Conklin valued six years for $90 million ($15 million annually). That kind of contract is comparable to Trent Brown of the Oakland Raiders and Lane Johnson of the Philadelphia Eagles. This contract is appropriate for a good right tackle that contributes to the third-best rush offense in the NFL.
