The Tennessee Titans are hoping that the 2024 season goes smoothly for Will Levis as he enters his second year in the NFL. The Titans moved on from Mike Vrabel in the offseason and hired Brian Callahan, the offensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bengals, to help Levis grow into a franchise quarterback.

Well, for those hoping that Levis is indeed the man taking the snaps for the Titans long-term, maybe stop reading here. Maurice Moton of Bleacher Report listed them as an option for Dak Prescott next year if the Dallas Cowboys quarterback ends up testing the market in free agency.

Moton notes that the Titans signed a bunch of new weapons for Levis in the hopes that he'd take the next step so if he doesn't, the decision to move on from him could be an easy one. He also pointed out that the Titans would have the money available to sign Prescott if they chose to go all in on the Cowboys signal-caller.

"The Titans will have a projected $27.5 million in cap space next offseason, and they can restructure multiple contracts (Ridley, L'Jarius Sneed and/or Jeffery Simmons) to save additional money to offer Prescott a competitive deal."

Could the Titans target Dak Prescott next year?

This will, of course, depend on what the Cowboys decide to do with Prescott. Do they pay him another massive contract or let him test the free-agent waters?

From there, it'd depend on how Levis does in his first full year as a starter for Tennessee. If he shows improvement but the Titans have a losing record, does he get another shot in 2025 or do the Titans hit the reset button at quarterback and put all of their chips in the center of the table for Prescott?

The hope is that Callahan can help Levis take that next step and the Titans can be a playoff contender in 2024. With how quickly teams move on from quarterbacks these days though, if Levis doesn't show improvements this year, it wouldn't be shocking if the front office decides to move on and go in another direction.

Could that direction be signing Dak Prescott? He's been a good quarterback during his time in Big D but the Cowboys have little to show for it. They've yet to make an NFC Championship Game appearance since Prescott has been in Dallas and the 'Boys keep putting together strong regular seasons only to be bounced out of the playoffs early.

Perhaps a change of scenery could help Prescott's team get over the hump. Ultimately though, Titans fans are going to be rooting for Levis to pan out so the team can focus on improving other aspects of the team.
