Talk about one of the great turnaround jobs in recent NFL history. Under the leadership of one of the game’s great general managers, Jon Robinson, and the on-field direction of head coach Mike Vrabel, the Tennessee Titans have transformed themselves into a model franchise.

They’re in prime position to notch double-digit winning seasons for the first time since the 2007-2008 seasons. Doing so will probably also put them in a position to earn a second-consecutive division title, but make no mistake about it. They’ve set their sights a little higher and have the makings of a team that can challenge for its first Vince Lombardi Trophy to conclude the 2021-2022 season.

The Tennessee Titans are yet another veteran’s desired landing spot.

If you didn’t know anything about the Tennessee Titans’ organization, you’d probably think they’d be on a shortlist of franchises that some of the NFL’s best free agents would want to call home anyway. They’re stationed in one of our great country’s greatest cities (Nashville, Tennessee). They do things the right way, and now, they’re winning.

Nothing draws the attention of veterans like teams they can win on, fan bases that they want to play for, and players they want to play with. After all, that’s a huge reason why Julio Jones is here now, and it seems like another veteran wants to join in the fun. This one’s a familiar face.

Will Compton took to Twitter recently to make his pitch to head coach Mike Vrabel. Check this one out.

What’s that saying? The third time is supposed to be the charm right? Compton, a former underrated and undrafted free agent has made quite the career for himself as, now, an eight-year veteran entering what he hopes to be the ninth season.

Compton played for Tennessee in 2018 and, again, in 2020, racking up 34 total tackles and a forced fumble in 24 games with three starts. While those numbers aren’t overwhelming, the thought of adding Compton to a linebacker unit that could potentially house Bud Dupree, Harold Landry III, Jayon Brown, rookie Monty Rice, and Rashaan Evans is enough to make the mouth water.

Compton has made his intentions known. We’ll have to wait and see if there’s any interest from the team’s brass. At this point, you have to know that G.M. Jon Robinson is weighing all of the possibilities.
