The Tennessee Titans have made a splash this offseason, signing names like Calvin Ridley, Tony Pollard, and Chidobe Awuzie while trading for L'Jarius Sneed and extending him to a big contract. Meanwhile, two former Titans are still waiting to find their next NFL home.

Let's take a look at two former Titans who haven't hooked on with an NFL team yet this year.

Ryan Tannehill

In 2019, the Titans traded for Ryan Tannehill once it became clear that he wasn't the answer at quarterback for the Miami Dolphins. The Titans still had Marcus Mariota as their starting signal-caller at the time but by midseason, it was clear that he was no longer the answer. The Titans turned to Tannehill and he helped lead Tennessee to the playoffs and massive upsets over the Patriots and Ravens in the postseason.

While the Titans' magical run ended in Kansas City, Tannehill continued to help lead the Titans to successful seasons. In 2021, they finished the season as the number one seed in the AFC playoffs.

Unfortunately, Tannehill started to struggle to stay healthy over the past two seasons and it became evident that it was time to move on. Tennessee drafted Malik Willis and Will Levis in back-to-back seasons with the hope that one of them would become Tannehill's successor.

Tannehill is now a free agent and while he could still be useful to a team as a backup, he's yet to sign with a team. It's hard to imagine him remaining unsigned when we get closer to preseason or when injuries start to happen but right now, Tannehill is still waiting to find his next landing spot.

Andre Dillard

The Titans needed to rebuild their offensive line so signing Andre Dillard to a three-year deal in 2023 seemed like a decent move. He had a solid year in 2022 with the Philadelphia Eagles but that success did not translate to Nashville, as PFF gave Dillard an overall grade of 51.0 for his 2023 performance. He gave up a whopping 41 pressures and 12 sacks during his short stint as the Titans left tackle.

Dillard was so underwhelming during his inaugural season in Nashville that the Titans opted to release him after just one year of his contract. It'll be hard for Dillard to find work as a starting tackle after such a rough season but perhaps someone brings him in in a depth role.
