4. Ryan Tannehill, QB

This one is pretty easy, but Ryan Tannehill won't be back. The 35-year-old veteran quarterback will likely find a job as a backup next year, if he finds a job at all. He might be best as a fall-back plan for a team that fails to draft a top quarterback and would rather have a one-year starter with someone like Tannehill's experience.

Tannehill's run as the Titans' quarterback will end with a thud, as he appeared in seven games this year, going 2-4 as a starter and throwing for 1,128 yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions. But, it wasn't always all bad.

In 2019, when Tannehill took over as the Titans' starter and saw Marcus Mariota benched, he finished the year as a Pro Bowler and led the league in yards per attempt, air yards per attempt and quarterback rating en route to a postseason berth. It was definitely a magical run that saw a veteran resurrect his career while giving Titans fans a lot to be excited about.

Tannehill led the Titans all the way to the AFC Championship where they ultimately lost to the Kansas City Chiefs, but it was certainly a season to remember.
