Sign A Low-Cost, High Floor Backup QB
For better or worse, Ryan Tannehill will be the Titans starting quarterback for the foreseeable future after getting the franchise contract he deserves, but it would be smart for Tennessee to invest in a quality insurance policy, just in case.
Not that Tannehill needs another quarterback to drive competition at the position. He earned his spot as the starter in Tennessee after the season he had. But we’ve seen time and time again through the Marcus Mariota years talented Tennessee teams spiral out of the playoffs with their starting quarterback on the sidelines, while mediocre quarterback play failed to get the job done.
The Titans should be investing in a backup quarterback anyway, with Mariota likely on his way out the door, Tannehill will be the only viable option at the position. And with Tannehill’s own personal history with injuries, Tennessee would be wise to invest in a quality backup option.
The ‘Quality Backup QB Class’ isn’t as eye-popping as you’d might expect, but players like Chase Daniel or Case Keenum offer experienced veterans with a proven ability to win a game or two. If Robinson can get one of those guys, or another like them, the Titans would be in secure hands in the worst-case scenario of Tannehill suffering an injury.
